FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — In his return to Foxborough, Miami Dolphins cornerback Eric Rowe is doing his best to have a revenge game to remember. Rowe notched his first career pick-six off New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the second quarter of Sunday’s Dolphins-Patriots 2019 regular-season finale.
Brady appeared to not see Rowe, who was sitting in zone coverage eyeing the veteran quarterback who tried to lob a pass to Patriots receiver Julian Edelman. Rowe jumped the pass and went unimpeded to the end zone for the 35-yard pick-six.

Brady threw his first pick-six since 2017, and it was the 14th of his pro career. It was also Brady’s first pick-six vs. the Dolphins in his 20-year NFL career (35 career games against Miami).
Rowe’s pick-six helped the Dolphins extend their lead to 10-0. It’s the first Dolphins lead vs. the Patriots in Foxborough since 2013. The Dolphins lost that 2013 game 27-17 after leading at halftime.
After playing the past three seasons with the Patriots, Rowe signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins in March. After a successful move to a hybrid defensive back role, Rowe signed a three-year extension earlier this month.
