Cutler's best throw of the night may have been a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jakeem Grant, who finished with two catches for 42 yards.
Tom Brady has struggled so far with 92 yards and one interception in 11 for 16 passes against the tight defense of the Dolphins who are leading 13-10 at half time.
Drake became the first Miami player with 100 rushing yards and 75 receiving yards in the same game since September 23, 2007, when former Auburn standout Ronnie Brown accomplished the feat for the Dolphins. While Brady was off, there was no better catch made Monday than Dion Lewis' one-handed grab to set up New England's first touchdown.
On Monday night, Drake produced the Dolphins' three longest plays from scrimmage with a 47-yard reception and runs of 31 and 26 yards.
LiAngelo, LaMelo Ball In 'Serious Discussions' With Lithuanian Basketball Team
Vytautas fields teams in both the Lithuanian and Baltic leagues, with the latter the lesser competitive of the two circuits. LiAngelo , 19, began the season at UCLA , but withdrew from school last week amid an indefinite suspension.
Without Rob Gronkowski (serving his one-game suspension), the New England offense never got into a rhythm and the Dolphins were able to take advantage en route to a 27-20 win. The Miami running back ran wild for 114 yards on 25 carries, adding 79 yards on five receptions.
New England dropped to 10-3, one game behind the Pittsburgh Steelers for the best record in the AFC.
New England got untracked in the second quarter, taking a 7-6 lead on a 3-yard run by Rex Burkhead. And yet, after a field goal in the final minute, the Pats trailed the Dolphins by seven and needed just to recover an onside kick for a shot to send the game to overtime.
The third-down stats were alarming, as it was the first time the Patriots hadn't converted a single third-down play since the 1991 season. We just weren't really good enough in any area, consistent enough in any area to win the game. He was just 24 of 43 for 233 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions on Monday. The Patriots might be the only team from the AFC East to make the playoffs.
They were outgained 123 yards to two in the first quarter, when Brady went 0 for 4 with an interception.
