PATRIOTS 31, DOLPHINS 24

FOXBOROUGH, Mass.  — Jimmy Garoppolo had three, first-half touchdown passes before leaving in the second quarter with a right shoulder injury as the Patriots outlasted the Dolphins.

It was the Patriots’ eighth straight home victory over Miami (0-2). It came at a price as New England (2-0) was dealt another blow at quarterback with Tom Brady already out his four-game “Deflategate” suspension.

He was replaced by rookie Jacoby Brissett, who led New England to a touchdown on its first possession of the second half. Brissett was 6-of-9 for 92 yards.
