Patriots somehow leading Dolphins 14-13 at halftime

The Patriots haven't played good football, but lead the Dolphins 14-13 at halftime nonetheless.

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots lead the Miami Dolphins 14-13 at halftime of their week 15 match-up, despite some generally poor play by the Patriots.

New England got things going quickly with a Jamie Collins blocked field goal on the opening drive of the game. The kick was scooped up by Kyle Arrington and returned to the house for a 7-0. The Patriots extended their lead to 14-3 after a Duron Harmon interception set up Shane Vereen for a short score.

Miami picked up ten points in the final few minutes of the half, including a Mike Wallace touchdown with just five seconds remaining.

Brady and the offense have been flustered. The Dolphins have held Gronk without a catch. The playcalling has been suspect. If the Patriots continue to play this way, they will lose this game.
