MIAMI (AP) — When the New England Patriots scored the last in a series of quick-strike touchdowns, stoic Bill Belichick allowed himself a slight smile and traded high-fives along a jubilant sideline.
Tom Brady and Randy Moss joined in the celebration as spectators, too. The offense watched while the Patriots' special teams and defense came up with one big play after another to beat the Miami Dolphins 41-14 on Monday night.
New England scored on a kickoff return, blocked field goal and interception, all in the second half. A flurry of 17 points in barely two minutes helped the NFL's highest-scoring team take control midway through the game.
"It was a good day for fantasy football," Belichick said. "We got plays from every phase of the game. It was awesome."
Brady threw for only 153 yards, and Randy Moss was held without a catch for the first time since 2006, but the Patriots still registered their biggest point total yet. They're averaging 33 points per game.
New England (3-1) moved into a tie with the New York Jets for first place in the AFC East. The humiliated Dolphins (2-2) endured their second divisional loss at home in eight days as they head into a bye week.
