Patriots Notebook

Bill Belichick impressed by Dolphins’ Ryan Tannehill

FOXBOROUGH — Like the rest of the nation, Bill Belichick watched football over the holiday weekend. And with a game at Miami Sunday, the Patriots coach focused his attention on the Dolphins’ 24-21 home victory over the Seahawks, in particular the performance of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

“It was a good win for the Dolphins,” said Belichick, whose team seized control of the AFC East with a 49-19 romp over the Jets Thanksgiving night at MetLife Stadium to improve to 8-3. “We know what kind of team Seattle is, very good. Great effort by Miami in the fourth quarter at the end of the game to come back and make the plays they needed to make to win it.’’
