Brady went 0-for-2 with the interception on the Patriots’ first series as he tried to hit Brandin Cooks, who was blanketed by Howard.
The Dolphins have dominated the first quarter, outgaining the Patriots 103 yards to 2 yards, but lead only 6-0.
Miami has had drives stall at the New England 12 and 26.
Jay Cutler is off to a fast start, completing 7 of 10 passes for 72 yards.
