Patriots Twitter growing restless after 31-17 loss to Dolphins

The New England Patriots lost to the Miami Dolphins by a 31-17 score on Sunday.

It was a tough day for the Patriots defense, especially with Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa throwing for 324 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill also had a big day with eight catches for 112 yards and one touchdown.

There were some positives in the game.

Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne caught three passes for 36 yards and a touchdown prior to his injury, and safety Kyle Dugger had a strong showing, including snagging an interception on Tagovailoa.

On offense, the Patriots showed some fight late, but they faced many of the same issues with Mac Jones turning the ball over behind a struggling offensive line with limited offensive weapons.

Fans had varied emotions on Twitter, following the loss, as the Patriots dropped to 2-6 on the season.
