The hero of the night was Patrick Chung who blocked two kicks one of which was returned for a Touch Down and chipped in with a TD himself returning an interception 51 yards. To make it a great night for the special teams Brandon Tate had a 103 yard kick off return just after half time, which helped turn the game.
Tom Brady had a steady night only gaining 153 yards for one TD but with 19 completions form 24 attempts finished with a QB rating of 107.1.
Miami had a night to forget amassing 400 yards of offense but giving up 4 turnovers. They benched Chad Henne replacing him with Tyler Thigpen, however he fared no better throwing the fourth pick in a night when nothing went their way. after his 3rd Interception. They will recover from this and dropping to 2-2 is not a disaster in what is proving to be a very competitive and unpredictable season epitomized by the fact that expected whipping boys the Kansas City Chiefs are the only unbeaten team after 4 weeks!
