FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Joey Harrington didn't fare much better than the quarterback he replaced. It just didn't hurt as much.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Dolphins played well defensively in the trenches and stuffed the Patriots' running game. But three turnovers by the Dolphins offense led to 17 points.
Miami replaced Daunte Culpepper with Joey Harrington (above), who gave Miami a chance to win with some pinpoint passing. But it wasn't enough as Tom Brady made timely throws to move the chains.
A questionable pass interference call in the fourth quarter set the Patriots up for their final score, putting the game away.
Miami WR Marty Booker had his left arm in a sling after the game and said he had an injury in the shoulder and pectoral area. "I don't know the severity of it," he said, but expected to have it checked Monday. ... Maroney rushed for 38 yards one week after getting 125.
