WEEK EIGHT VS. MIAMI DOLPHINS W 27-17
hey kids- well, it was a little dodgy there for a while, but our patriots pulled it together and pulled out a win against the miami dolphins sunday.
our fearless quarterback still can’t choose which of our receivers to love, and all that indecision really took its toll this week. tommy threw for just 116 yards, and everybody who knows how to catch the ball was pretty much equally jilted out of opportunities to do so. in his defense, tommy’s hand did look like a pack of overstuffed sausages after one of those nasty jets tried to take it home as a souvenir last week. still, it’s time to start turning these sweet nothings into a little sumthin sumthin, tommy!
our patriots looked pretty awful in the first half of this game, but whatever bill said during half time definitely worked. not only did the offense score 17 points in the third quarter, but the defense had a sack for a forced fumble and two interceptions – including the most awesome pick i’ve ever seen. knowing he couldn’t come down in bounds with the ball, devin mccourty tipped an errant pass toward marquice cole, who both caught it and forcibly touched both feet inbounds before stumbling out. apparently it’s called a tip drill interception, it was super genius. it earned both mccourty and cole co-tommies this week. it’s that kind of heads up football that’s got us 6-2 instead of 2-6! nicely done once again, defense!
we play pittsburgh on sunday, and while it would be awesome to head into our bye week with one more win, every time we play the steelers i just hope all our boys make it out of the game alive. pittsburgh doesn’t look quite as fierce as they have in years past, but that doesn’t mean that can’t kill somebody (i’m talking to you, danny amendola!). now that the red sox have taken care of business, you’ve all got nothing better to do than think your happy patriots thoughts – so get to it and i’ll try to catch you back here a little earlier next week.
have a great weekend, and go pats!
