Monday Night Football: Patriots' Special Teams Scores Two Touchdowns, Leads New England In Rout, 41-14

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Patrick Chung blocked two kicks in the second half and returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown in the final quarter, powering New England to a 41-14 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Chung had the type of game most defensive backs could only dream of, but the second year player out of Oregon had a factor in 21 of New England's 35 second-half points.

Shortly after Brandon Tate ran the opening kickoff of the second half 103 yards for the go-ahead touchdown, Chung blocked a punt, which led to a 12-yard TD run by BenJarvus Green-Ellis. In the opening minute of the fourth, Chung blocked a field goal attempt and Kyle Arrington rumbled 35 yards with the recovery to the end zone.

Tom Brady connected on 19-of-24 passes for 153 yards and a score for the Patriots (3-1). It was the 100th win for Brady, as the two-time Super Bowl MVP became the 11th NFL QB to reach the milestone and the quickest ever. He did it in 131 starts, surpassing the mark of his boyhood idol Joe Montana, who needed 139 games to reach the century mark in victories.

Chad Henne finished 29-of-39 through the air for 302 yards with two TDs and three interceptions, two of those going to linebacker Rob Ninkovich. Davone Bess caught nine balls for 93 yards and a score for the Dolphins (2-2).
