20 things we learned in Miami Dolphins’ 33-24 win over New England Patriots

For the second year in a row, Miami rumbled to its best running performance of the season against the New England Patriots at Hard Rock Stadium. In 2020, the Dolphins, seemingly out of nowhere, ran on the Pats at HRS for their highest output of the season (250) 27% higher than New England’s previous worst number for the year (197), and 187% more than Miami’s output vs. NE in the 2020 opener (87). The Pats entered that game allowing 1,612 run yards on 366 carries for a 4.40 per-carry average. This year? Miami, led by Duke Johnson’s 117 yards, tore through the Patriots for an also-season-best 195 yards. The Patriots’ run defense isn’t as good as it was last year, allowing 2,103 rushing yards on 464 carries for 4.53 yards a carry, but anytime you pound a Belichick defense is a good day.
