Patriots Blank Dolphins 28-0 To Earn Bye, No.2 Seed
Stevan Ridley rushed for two touchdowns and the New England Patriots secured a first-round bye in the playoffs with a 28-0 whitewash of the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.
The convincing shutout gave the Patriots (12-4) the second seed behind the Denver Broncos and capped their perfect run through the AFC East.
Tom Brady threw a touchdown pass for the 48th straight game and in doing so moved past Johnny Unitas for the second longest streak in NFL history. Brady completed 22-of-36 passes for 284 yards and two scores, one to his favorite target in tight end Rob Gronkowski, who returned from a five-game absence.
Miami's Ryan Tannehill ended his rookie campaign with a disappointing game, finishing 20-of-35 through the air for 235 yards with an interception and a lost a fumble.
