MASSACHUSETI'S PORT AUTHORITY THOMAS P. GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE UIRECTOR Run date: 9/12,'14 i:  iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii%ii!iiiiiiii!iiiiii;iiiiiiiiitiiiiii :Tii%iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!ii:iiiltii:iii%!i ii:  Second Half Meltdown in Steamy Miami Opener In an ugly debut for the much anticipated 2014 Patriots, New England fell to the Miami Dol- phins 33-20. The game was a tale of two halves as New England dominated 20 the first, leading 20-19 at halftime, before completely faltering on offense in the second. "It was a great example of if you do the things we did today, you will get beat." said Quarterback Tom Brady who was abysmal under pressure in the third and fourth quarters. Many of Brady's passes were off target, as he clearly looked skiddish in the face of the pressure that the Dolphin defense was applying. The Patriots offensive line whithered in the Miami heat, only adding more questions as to why the team pulled the trigger on the questionable Logan Mankins trade. The Patriots were outgained by 155 yards, 67-222, and outscored 23-0 in the second half. Outside of a late fourth quarter drive, when the Dolphins defense was playing con- servatively to prevent a quick New England score, the offense had managed just two first downs the entire half. Defensively, it may be time to pump the brakes on labeling the New England defense a dominant unit. The front 7, failed to pres- sure Dolphin Quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who finished the game 18 of 32 for 178 yards and two touchdowns. On one particular play, Dolphin Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall juked Cornerback Darrelle Revis beating him in one-on-one coverage into the end zone. Luckily, Tannehilrs pass was off target, landing out of bounds, however Revis was clearly off on that play and others throughout the game. However, the run de- fense was perhaps the most alarming area in the game for the Patriots. 33 Knowshon Moreno rushed for 134 of the Miami 191 yards on the ground, completely devastating the New England front. The run defense was seen as a strength on the unit, and now looks like an area that is the team's biggest Achilles heel. Tackle Vince Wilfork looked a shell of his former self, unable to shed, what for the majority of the game was single blocking. "We have to go back to the drawing board, that's what it's all about," said Wilfork who looked old and slow last Sunday. Despite forcing three turnovers, the defense cannot play as they did in Miami, if they do, this young season is already in jeopardy. Defensively, the next challenge will not be any easier, as the Patriots will travel to Minnesota to take on former Patriot Quar- terback Matt Cassel, Running back Adrian Peterson and the 1-0 Vikings. Unless they find an answer to their issues up front, Peterson will continue the early season onslaught on the Patriots defense. "We need to do a better job than we did today," said Head Coach Bill Belichick. "It's as simple as that." Belichick and the New England coaching staff are looking for a solution to what went wrong on Sunday in Miami. The challenge at hand in Adrian Peterson is not a simple one to solve.
