The New England Patriots are in control in their clash with the Miami Dolphins at the break as they lead 20-10 at SunLife Stadium
The Patriots got their season off to the worst possible start as they went three and out and Ryan Allen's punt was blocked and recovered by the Dolphins.
Ryan Tannehill took full advantage of the situation as he fooled the defense on mis-direction and fired a four-yard touchdown strike to Lamar Miller in the flat.
New England responded immediately as Tom Brady drove them the length of the field and Shane Vereen powered through the line to go in for the two-yard score.
The Patriots took the lead when Jamie Collins forced a fumble from Mike Wallace and the visitors kicked a 49-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski.
Brady fired his side further ahead with a touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski, but the Dolphins pegged them back with a field goal through Caleb Sturgis. However, another field goal from Gostkowski restored the visitors' 10-point lead.
