Patriots Set Records in Win Over MiamiDavid Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

Thursday Night’s win 36-7 win over the Dolphins was a dominant performance by New England on both sides of the football and a night where several players wrote their names into the record books.

One of he more notable records was Stephen Gostkowski’s consecutive field goal streak, which the veteran tied former kicker Adam Vinatieri’s streak of 25 with just over three minutes to go in the first half with a kick that wasn’t exactly easy. Gostkowski hit a 52-yard field goal that looked initially like it might sail wide right, only to hook back inside the uprights.

He later moved ahead of Vinatieri in the third quarter with a 36-yard field goal for his 26th straight kick, giving him the franchise record.

Rob Gronkowski also extended his own record last night after finishing with six catches for 113 yards including a 47-yard touchdown. That marked the veteran’s 19th 100-yard game, extending his own franchise record and tied Shannon Sharp for 3rd most all-time.

Tom Brady also made the list after finishing with over 300-yards for the second straight weeks after completing 26-of-38 for 356-yards and four touchdowns. It was Brady’s 69th 300-yard game, third most in that category all-time.

Brady’s four touchdown performance was also the 24th time in his career he’s thrown for that many touchdowns, which also is the third most in that category.
