FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Tom Brady overcame a slow start Sunday, tossing a second-half touchdown pass to help rally the New England Patriots over Miami 27-17.

Brady, after posting his worst first-half performance in a decade, regrouped after the break as the Patriots (6-2) erased a 14-point deficit and scored 24 unanswered points thanks to a trio of Miami turnovers and two missed field goals.

Brady finished 13-of-22 through the air for 116 yards and tossed a 14-yard TD pass to Aaron Dobson early in the third quarter that shaved New England's deficit to 17-10.

Brandon Bolden and Stevan Ridley each added a rushing touchdown for New England, which bested Miami for the seventh straight time.

The Dolphins (3-4) stumbled to a fourth consecutive loss as Ryan Tannehill was limited to 192 yards with a pair of touchdowns and two interceptions.
