Patriots 13, Dolphins 38

A lesson in futility. Those who blame Matt Cassel didn't watch the defense get torched. That was the surprise of the week - that the defense didn't adjust and looked like they were playing in sand. Granted, more offense from the Pats would have changed the play-calling on both sides, but this loss can't be pinned on the backup up QB.
Incidentally, no matter how bad the Dolphins are or how good the Patriots are, with the exception of 2007, these two teams are ALWAYS competitive on the field. It was humorous to hear how "prognosticators" were calling for a Pats blowout after seeing the teams for two weeks.
On the other hand, could somebody put in a call to Brad Johnson please?
