Post game outlook from Dolphins @ Patriots

The Dolphins once again lost dropping them to (7-7) on the season with two games remaining and little to no chance at making the playoffs. The Dolphins scored at the end of the first half to get within one point of the Patriots, but then laid a goose egg in the second half and showed that they are truly not ready for the bright lights. Lets explore my keys to the game and see where things went wrong. My first key was to get to Brady and the Dolphins did not do that. They didn't sack Brady once all game and only tallied 5 qb hits while the Patriots defense got 4 sacks and 10 qb hits. Next was to run the ball effectively like they did in the first meting, but they did not do that either rushing for a total of 76 yards and no touchdowns. My third key was to contain Rob Gronkowski and in the first half they did an excellent job shutting him down, but in the second half was a different story where he caught all three of his passes for a total of 96 yards with a long of 35 yards and a touchdown. Next was to avoid turnovers and Ryan Tannehill did not do that  throwing two interceptions to give Tom Brady ball back and also for the Patriots first score they blocked a field goal and returned it 62 yards the other way. For my final key was to score points and the Dolphins did not do that either  by only scoring  points for the second straight week. The Dolphins did not execute any of my keys which in the end resulted in a loss.
