Patrick Chung, Brandon Tate Come to Play on Big Stage of Monday Night Football

Patrick Chung, Brandon Tate Come to Play on Big Stage of Monday Night Football For awhile Monday night, it looked like the Patriots were going to be in a rock fight with the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. That was, of course, until the special teams unit took over.

Brandon Tate had a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Patrick Chung blocked a punt and a field goal as the Patriots walloped the Dolphins 41-14 on Monday night in front of a primetime audience.

Tate got the second half off to a good start for the Pats when he returned the opening kick of the second half from his own endzone for the momentum-shifting touchdown.

Moments later, Chung blocked a punt that would lead to a BenJarvus Green-Ellis 12-yard touchdown run. For good measure, Chung blocked a Dan Carpenter field goal in the fourth quarter that Kyle Arrington scooped up and took 35 yards for a touchdown, essentially sealing a New England win.

The win will likely resonate as a loud statement across the AFC and across the league as the Patriots came out after hearing all week that they stood no chance going to Miami.
