Pregame moves.

Early on in the first quarter, newly signed wide receiver Josh Gordon tallied his first reception as a Patriot which helped setup the first points of the game.

A Stephen Gostkowski 20-yard field goal put the home team ahead 3-0.

In the second quarter, with the score still low, Cordarrelle Patterson found a hole in the Dolphins secondary for his first touchdown reception as a Patriot. 10-0 New England.

In what became a recurring theme throughout the game, the Patriots defense turned in its best showing of 2018. Shutting down the Dolphins offense, especially on third down.

Despite the great start, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wasn’t going to be pleased with his offense committing three penalties on play.

Still leading 10-0 with seven minutes to go in the half, linebacker Kyle Van Noy forced a fumble that setup a James White 22 yard touchdown run on the very next play. 17-0 in favor of the Patriots.

As the defense continued to do its job keeping the Dolphins offense off the field, the Patriots offense was clicking as Phillip Dorsett hauled in this acrobatic catch just before halftime.

24-0 Patriots at the Half.

During the halftime break, the New England Patriots honored newly enshrined team Hall of Famer Matt Light, who provided a very “colorful” speech to the fans.

In the third quarter, the Brady/White combination struck again with another touchdown, and all but putting the game away.  31-0 Patriots.

With the Patriots up 31-0 and the defense continuing to shut out the Dolphins, rookie Sony Michel capped off his career day with his first career touchdown run.

Michel ran for 112 yards on 25 carries with the touchdown, his first career 100 yard rushing game. 38-0 Patriots.

With a 38-0 lead, the Dolphins managed a garbage time touchdown with 2:42 remaining in the game when Frank Gore caught a six-yard pass from backup quarterback Brock Osweiler.

The Patriots would go on to win by a final score of 38-7.
