The New England Patriots started their week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins in sloppy fashion, particularly on offense. The unit gained only two yards in the first quarter while quarterback Tom Brady threw his fifth interception of the season. However, on its third possession, the unit finally found some rhythm.

One of the biggest plays of the drive came courtesy of running back Dion Lewis, who made a great one-handed catch down the right sideline:

Lewis' catch brought the Patriots into scoring range and after a pass interference call against the Dolphins set up New England at the 3-yard line, the team took the lead:

New England used a big goal-line package to attack Miami on the first play after the interference penalty, with offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle an extra tackle on the left side. Patriots running back Rex Burkhead ran behind Waddle and fullback James Develin for the team's first score of the night.

The Patriots are up 7-6 midway through the second quarter.
