Stevan Ridley, Logan Ryan made most of their time

FOXBOROUGH — Two players relegated to the bench to start the game — prompting speculation that it was for disciplinary reasons — wound up playing leading roles in the Patriots’ 27-17 comeback win Sunday against the Dolphins.

Running back Stevan Ridley didn’t see the field until the second quarter, but he finished with 79 yards and a game-clinching touchdown run. Rookie cornerback Logan Ryan had two sacks, none bigger than the blind-side hit he laid on Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The turnover led to a third-quarter touchdown that tied the game and shifted the momentum.
