Just last week Michael Thomas was sitting on the San Francisco 49ers practice squad. He was signed onto the Dolphins 53 man roster and boy what a breathe of fresh air he was.
Thomas broke up a would-be touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Danny Amendola late in the fourth quarter. Then when the Patriots made a final push in the fourth quarter, Tom Brady’s fourth-down throw on the game’s final play was intercepted by Thomas.
Thomas was a former teammate of Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks at Stanford University.
The Dolphins improved to 8-6 with the win. The Patriots fell to 10-4.
