Watch: James White Rushes For 22-Yard TD
The New England Patriots seem to have learned their lesson. The team lost two games so far, and it seems like they’re ready to fix the damage. The team is challenging the Miami Dolphins, and things look good for the Pats at the moment. Cordarrelle Patterson had his first run, and now James White made a 22-yard touchdown run.
At the 7:38 mark in the second quarter, a botched snap went over Ryan Tannehill and was immediately recovered by Pats linebacker Kyle Van Noy on the Miami 22 yard line. The New England Patriots found a way to capitalize on the turnover, and James White took the chance. The back cut out left, and rushed for 22 yards to the end zone to bring his team up to 17-0.
White rushed for 38 yards on six carries and this score. He was able to bring in two of his three targets for eight yards.

The Patriots defense was superb in Week 4 after a few poor starts in the opening weeks. The team lost the games in Week 2 and Week 2, and predictions say that they will be able to win the game against the Miami Dolphins.
New England is able to hold the Dolphins to 0-5 on third down attempts to this point of the game. Miami has 53 yards of total offense so far, and the team averages 2.8 yards per play. This is actually a good number for the Patriots defense.
Cordarrelle Patterson made the first score in the game. He made a brilliant 55-yard touchdown grab from quarterback Tom Brady.
This doesn’t even look like the team’s sloppy game last week. The Patriots have a good chance of beating up the Dolphins, and it’s more than clear that they have improved their game. Is Bill Belichick proud of his guys?
