They allowed another 396 yards Sunday, including 151 on 8 catches by Julian Edelman.
He was picked out by Brady for a 14-yard catch and drive, showing tremendous strength to force the ball into the endzone and set the Patriots on their way to win that gives them a ideal 8-0 record on the road this season.
The game was played on a highly-questionable sod turf, ripped up between the numbers after Friday night's Orange Bowl. Shea McClellin recovered the fumble and returned it to the Dolphins' 18-yard line to set up Blount's run, which effectively sealed New England's win. The Patriots lost, which forced them to play on the road in the AFC title game, which they lost at Denver.
Brady tore up Miami's defense and continued what has been an exceptional season.
The Patriots dominated in every possible way in the first quarter.
Still, the turf problem failed to bottle up the Patriots' drive, as it culminated in a Martellus Bennett touchdown. That gave him a 14:1 touchdown to interception ratio.
Edelman's 15-yarder pushed the Patriots to a second-and-25, turning a major touchdown opportunity into a field goal drive. Two weeks later, in an all-time classic, New England defeated the NFC's top-seeded Seattle Seahawks 28-24. After the catch, Landry broke a tackle attempt by Dont'a Hightower. He put the ball on the turf inside the Patriots 10.
Finally, down 20-0 late in the first half, the Dolphins' offense came to life. The Dolphins used a no-cornerback formation on the touchdown pass, correctly guessing the Patriots would want to use the middle of the field. Patriots fans were having flashbacks to Week 2, when the Patriots almost wasted a 31-3 lead and had to hang on for a 31-24 win.

The series, called The Case of JonBenét Ramsey, aired in September ahead of the 20th anniversary of JonBenét's death. Investigators said they were looking at new DNA testing technology that they hoped would further the investigation.
It was expected that the Patriots would win in Miami, though the Dolphins are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
But the Patriots got that score back in dramatic fashion.
Today, as the curtain draws on the Patriots' regular season are sitting in a familiar spot.
Who will play? how much will they play? and who will rest? seem to be the three biggest questions this week for both the Patriots and Dolphins. CBS reported that the helmet with the green dot had a malfunction with the communication network.
Brady will be making his 12th consecutive start since returning from the suspension and is in the race for the most valuable player award.
Jay Ajayi was held in check after posting over 200 yards last week in Buffalo. The drive took almost eight minutes (7:32). The trio of Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan and Eric Rowe are proving to be another formidable obstacle to beating the Patriots.
They will be the team to beat in the American Football Conference playoffs, which open next weekend, and are in a position to secure the No. 1 seed.
