Monday Night Football: Patriots, Dolphins Exchange Third-Quarter Touchdowns

The first half of Monday night's game between the Patriots and Dolphins saw just a total of 13 points -- one touchdown and two New England field goals. With 4:02 still remaining in the third quarter, the two sides have already totaled 28 points -- on four touchdowns. 

The Patriots opened the third quarter with a pair of touchdowns in about two minutes on the strength of special teams play before Miami got back in it with a 28-yard pass to Ricky Williams that drew the Dolphins closer, 20-14. 

New England immediately answered with a 12-play, 78-yard drive that culminated with an 11-yard touchdown pass to everyone's favorite new Patriots, Danny Woodhead, extending the lead to 27-14.
