Dec. 30, 2012 at 8:04 PM   |   Comments

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Stevan Ridley scored twice and Tom Brady threw a TD pass for the 48th straight game Sunday in the New England Patriots' 28-0 shutout of Miami.

Brady completed 22-of-36 passes for 284 yards with two scores, moving past Johnny Unitas for the second-longest streak in NFL history as New England (12-4) earned the No. 2 AFC seed and secured a first-round bye.

Drew Brees of New Orleans holds the record for consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass at 54 -- a streak that was snapped in October.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski returned from a five-game absence to catch a touchdown pass and Justin Francis led the Patriots' defensive charge with three sacks in the victory.

Miami (7-9) fell as rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill was limited to a 20-of-35 passing effort for 235 yards with an interception and a lost fumble.
