Monday Night Football: Patriots Cut Into Dolphins' Lead With 23-Yard Field Goal

A drive that began when Rob Ninkovich picked off Chad Henne was kept alive with three third-down conversions and a Tom Brady sneak on 4th-and-1, eventually resulted in a 23-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski, as the Patriots cut into the Dolphins lead, 7-3. 

While the offense only managed three points, perhaps more importantly, it gave their defense a rest. 

The drive lasted 16 plays and took 9:11 off the clock.
