After back-to-back weeks of heartbreaking losses, the New England Patriots earned a much-needed win in the 2022 season home finale at Gillette Stadium. The 24-21 victory over the Miami Dolphins keeps the Patriots’ playoff chances alive, with a win in Week 18 against the Buffalo Bills sealing the final spot in the AFC.

On offense, quarterback Mac Jones completed 20/33 passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns, and rookie wide receiver Tyquan Thornton led all Patriots receivers with 60 yards on three catches and added a touchdown reception.Β  Jones’ other touchdown pass went to Jakobi Meyers who hauled in six receptions for 48 yards. Tight end Hunter Henry also added some big receptions in the contest, logging five receptions for 52 yards.

In the running game, for the first time in weeks, Rhamondre Stevenson and Damien Harris split the workload, combining for 74 yards on 17 carries.

The defense meanwhile, like they have all season long, helped picked up the slack for an offense that has struggled to generate points.

Despite missing three key players in the backfield, safety Kyle Dugger recorded the seventh Patriots defensive touchdown of the season on a 39-yard interception return in the third quarter that proved to be the difference. Cornerback Jonathan Jones recorded a highlight-reel interception of his own in the contest.

“We’re still alive.” center David Andrews said after the game. “It was a tough game, we really fought hard, hats off to them [Dolphins] they had a pretty good game plan coming in and did some things to challenge us. The defense obviously, Kyle, a huge play by Kyle, and then we were able to put that drive together at the end to go ahead. Overall a good team win”.
