The Patriots nearly had the win, but just couldn’t come through when it mattered most. Brady almost connected with receiver Danny Amendola on first down, who caught the ball and fell into the end zone. But as he came down, Miami defensive back Michael Thomas knocked the ball loose.

“I’d like to have that one,” said Amendola, who posted 131 yards on 10 receptions. “The game is on the line and I’d really like to have that one.”

After an offside penalty on Miami set the Patriots up with a second down on the Miami 14, Brady’s pass to Julian Edelman was a little too long for the receiver to come down with, and Brady’s third down bid for tight end Michael Hoomanawanui was a little too high over the middle.

On fourth down, Thomas jumped in front of Austin Collie in the end zone to come down with the game-sealing interception.

A win would have clinched the AFC East for the Patriots and moved them to the top seed in the AFC. But instead, they no longer control their own destiny in playoff seeding, and a Cincinnati win Sunday night over the Steelers will knock the Patriots down to the three-seed in the AFC.

It’s easy to see why Brady was so frustrated after a “crappy” loss.
