Special teams is playing a huge role in the New England Patriots' Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

The Patriots missed an extra point after their first touchdown, but also blocked two punts in the first half at Hard Rock Stadium.

Albert McClellan was credited with both blocks. Here's a replay of his first punt block from the first quarter.

McClellan's first block led to a Tom Brady touchdown pass to Julian Edelman, which put the Patriots quarterback ahead of Peyton Manning for the most career touchdown passes (regular season and playoffs combined) in NFL history. His second block did not produce any points because Brady uncharacteristically took a bad sack that cost New England a late field goal as halftime hit.
