FOXBORO — The third quarter is done here at Gillette, and the Patriots remain in control with a 21-0 lead. Here are a few quick third-quarter notes:

‘€¢The Patriots started the third quarter with back-to-back sacks on Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill. First, Vince Wilfork [1] brought him down for a two-yard loss, and then Trevor Scott [2] picked up a five-yard sack on third down to force a Miami punt. (Justin Francis [3] had his second sack of the game with a takedown of Tannehill late in the quarter.)

‘€¢Late in the third, the Dolphins had their first real scoring opportunity of the afternoon, as Tannehill guided them to the New England 3-yard line. But Reggie Bush [4] fumbled the ball on the Patriots 1-yard line, giving the ball back to New England with just over four minutes left in the quarter.
