FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Fans booed the Patriots. Many left early. The record winning streak of their favorite team was ending with a stunning domination by the lowly Dolphins.

Brown's big day
Ronnie Brown picked a good day to show he's fully recovered from a torn ACL suffered in Week 3 last season. The Dolphins running back totaled as many carries against the Patriots as he had in his previous two games this season.

First two games of the season

Attempts: 17
Yards: 48
Touchdowns: 1
Yards per carry: 2.8

vs. New England Sunday

Attempts: 17
Yards: 113
Touchdowns: 4
Yards per carry: 6.6

Ronnie Brown scored a team-record four touchdowns rushing and threw for another -- with four of the scores coming on direct snaps to the running back -- as Miami shocked New England 38-13 Sunday.

"It's brutal, man, brutal," Patriots defensive end Ty Warren said.

The loss ended the Patriots' NFL mark of 21 consecutive regular-season wins that began after a 21-0 loss to the Dolphins on Dec. 10, 2006, in which Tom Brady, now sidelined for the season with a knee injury, was sacked four times. It also ended New England's chance for a second consecutive unbeaten regular season.

The Dolphins, who lost their first 13 games last year and finished 1-15, won for just the second time in 22 games. It was the first victory for new coach Tony Sparano, and it was a stunner.

"That was fun. It was obviously a pretty emotional deal," he said. "They executed the game plan on both sides of the ball to perfection."
