Leon Halip/Getty Images(MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.) — Another comeback wasn’t in the books for Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday. 

Brady led the team down the field in the final two minutes, but was picked off by Michael Thomas in the end zone with two seconds remaining to give the Dolphins (8-6) a 24-20 victory over New England (10-4).

“Come up on the short end of the stick,” said Brady, who finished with a pick and two touchdown passes.  “Just wasn’t a good day, couldn’t make enough plays when we had a chance to.”

Ryan Tannehill connected with Marcus Thigpen on a 14-yard touchdown pass with 1:15 remaining to give the Dolphins the lead and their third consecutive win in a row to keep them in the AFC wild card hunt.

Tannehill finished the game with three touchdowns and 312 yards of offense.

The Patriots had a chance to clinch the AFC East title with a win, but will look to do so next Sunday against the Ravens in Baltimore.
