  1. The New England Patriots reminded everyone why they are still the pride of the AFC East.With a 3-0 start to the season Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey , the Miami Dolphins emerged as an early threat to the Patriots' run of nine consecutive division titles.The Dolphins are now left to regroup after a 38-7 loss to New England on Sunday , having been denied their first 4-0 start since Hall of Fame coach Don Shula's last season in 1995.The Patriots, meanwhile, are back to 2-2 with a short week to get ready for Thursday night's matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.It was the first time this season that the Patriots have resembled a team capable of making a run at its third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl."Obviously, we haven't played well the last two weeks and we talked a lot about the things we need to do better, and we need to carry them over from week to week," Patriots QB Tom Brady said. "Hopefully we're a lot better in October than we were in September."Part of the reason is, Belichick's team clearly isn't yet at full strength.Defensive end Trey Flowers and safety Patrick Chung returned to action after missing Week 3 with concussions.But Brady is still trying to get the most of a new-look group of receivers following key offseason departures. He made progress, tossing a 55-yard TD pass to Cordarrelle Patterson and a 9-yard TD to rapidly improving Phillip Dorsett.Still, the offense may have taken another hit on Sunday after tight end Rob Gronkowski left the game in the third quarter with a right ankle injury and didn't return.Gronk had been questionable all week with an ankle issue.The good news for Brady is that receiver Julian Edelman is now eligible to play after being suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancers.He can officially rejoin the team on Monday."It will be great to have him," Brady said. "'We haven't seen him in four weeks, but I know he'll be ready. ... Everyone here loves Jules and loves having him back."There is also plenty to be excited about on defense, which held Miami to just 172 total yards and 3 of 11 on third down. New England entered the game giving up more than 400 yards of offense per game and allowing opponents to succeed on 49 percent of their third down opportunities."We ignore the noise," Flowers said. "When you've been hearing it for so long, we know we're all we've got and we understand the guys in here and how hard we work. So we have confidence in how hard we work and the production that we'll put out on the field."After turning in his worst effort this season Authentic Chester Rogers Jersey , Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said he will be focused on recapturing how he started the season and not dwelling on his shortcomings in this game."We didn't come out and start the game like we wanted to. We didn't convert on third down, we didn't take care of the football, we didn't gain yardage. We didn't do anything we wanted to, so lot of work to do."BOUNCING BACKThe Patriots improved to 8-0 following consecutive losses since 2002. That is also the last time the Patriots have lost more than two games in a row (lost four straight that year).MILESTONEJust moments before Gronkowski's injury, he hauled in his fourth catch of the day, the 491st of his career. It marked a franchise record for catches by a tight end, passing Ben Coates.For the day, Gronk had four catches for 44 yards.STREAKINGLong snapper John Denney played in his 212th straight regular-season game on Sunday and is the NFL's leader among active players for consecutive games played. He has appeared in every Dolphins game since signing with Miami as an undrafted free agent in 2005.AMENDOLA'S RETURNDolphins receiver Danny Amendola was a fan favorite during his five seasons in New England.He returned for the first time since he signed with Miami this past offseason during free agency.Amendola is being used in a role like the one with the Patriots — returning punts, in addition to his receiver duties. He finished with two catches for 21 yards against his former team."They are a good team and we didn't play well enough to beat them," Amendola said.Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at ://khightower Andrew Luck's postgame recovery process turned into a quick reminder of what he'd missed over the past 20 months.The throws, the hits and, yes, even the Monday morning soreness.So on his 27th birthday, the Indianapolis Colts quarterback stood at his locker and reflected on how he was dealing with moving beyond one game and onto the next."I forget what it felt like, sort of the postgame Authentic Braden Smith Jersey , the next day," Luck said Wednesday with a laugh. "I've never been in a serious car wreck thankfully, but I imagine you get a little bit of that feeling. It's always good to take those steps and look at the game objectively and also physically move around and get going."It's certainly different from last year's weekly routine.But this is the next step in Luck's long road back.He threw 53 passes in Sunday's game against Cincinnati, the fourth-highest single-game total of his career behind only the 55 he threw in a comeback victory over Green Bay in 2012, the 54 he threw in a comeback victory at Detroit later that season and the 54 he attempted in the Colts' playoff loss during his rookie season.Two years later, Luck threw 53 passes against Denver and Cleveland.Since then, though, he had never topped 50 — something new coach Frank Reich didn't intend to do in his first regular-season start since January 2017. The Bengals defense dictated it.Luck also was sacked twice and took an additional seven hits during the game, managed to draw two penalties for roughing the passer and even endured a helmet-to-helmet collision that led to the ejection of Bengals safety Shawn Williams late in the first quarter.Following the game, Luck said he felt fine.On Monday, the painful reminders came rushing back."I was sore. I felt a couple of those hits," Luck said. "Otherwise, I think I came out fairly clean. I felt like I had juice left in my arm, which I am excited about. We did throw a lot, I didn't realize we threw it that many times."Luck felt better Wednesday as preparations kicked into high gear for this weekend's matchup at Washington , where rain and wind from Hurricane Florence could make it challenging.Reich doesn't anticipate making any significant changes to the game plan or practice schedule yet, waiting for more accurate forecasts as the weekend and the hurricane get closer."We'll take some snaps with a wet ball, but I'm not a big believer in throwing with a wet ball too much, it gets heavy. Sometimes that can put a little stress on a quarterback's shoulder," the former NFL quarterback said."You might do a little bit of a wet ball drill by quarterback-center exchange and a few light tosses here and there."Of course, neither Reich nor Luck were there for last year's blizzard in Buffalo — a game played in conditions 23-year veteran Adam Vinatieri called the worst he's ever faced.Reich said there have been "ongoing communications" with league officials about potential contingency plans.Meanwhile, it appears Luck will have his longtime left tackle, Anthony Castonzo, back in the lineup.Castonzo hasn't been full-go since re-injuring his hamstring Aug. 4. He initially was hurt during workouts between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp, went on the physically unable to perform list and then had another setback shortly after returning to practice.The Colts (0-1) considered bringing back Castonzo for last week's opener before deciding to deactivate him.This week, Castonzo promises he'll be on the field."I'll be full-go, I'll be at left tackle," he said. "It was extremely close (last week), I talked it over with the coaches and doctors about the risk of going out there, it was just a really high risk."Castonzo's return could allow Joe Haeg to slide from the left side to the right side where he played more frequently during the previous two seasons. J'Marcus Webb started at right tackle last weekend , but was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after hurting his hamstring on the Bengals' 83-yard fumble return, which sealed the 34-23 victory.The return of Castonzo and the possible move of Haeg could provide Luck with the more cohesive line Indy anticipated this season, giving Luck a better chance of staying healthy.Even though Luck understands that the Monday morning soreness is just part of the game he must get re-acclimated with."After one of those hits, I was like, 'OK, am I OK? Is it there? Can I still do this?'" he said. "But that was really the only time that I can remember, which was a relief, you know, not to be in the back of my mind 100 percent of the time."Notes: Denzelle Good and Chris Milton (concussion protocol) were the only players who did not practice Wednesday. ... Castonzo, running back Marlon Mack (hamstring), defensive linemen Denico Autry (ankle) and Grover Stewart (shoulder) and safety Clayton Geathers (knee) all did limited work.
