The Patriots have agreed to terms with free-agent OL Caleb Benenoch, a source confirms. Benenoch has played in 35 career games (22 starts) with the Buccaneers since entering the NFL as a fifth-round draft pick in 2016 out of UCLA. Benenoch, who started all 16 games last season at right guard but was working at right tackle this season, worked out for the Patriots late last week. The agreement comes after starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn left Sunday's game with a toe injury. Wynn is expected to be sidelined this week, and likely for some time after that as well.

Bill Belichick put his support behind kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who missed two point-after attempts and a 48-yard field goal. "The field-goal operation is a full team play, it's not just one guy. But the most important player is the kicker in that particular play. We just have to do a good job all the way around -- some of it is coaching, timing and execution by the specialists, and protection by the other eight players -- and just work at it. Steve is a good kicker. He's made a lot of big kicks for us. He certainly kicked well last week against Pittsburgh. I have confidence in all the people that are involved here -- coaches, players and specialists and so forth. We'll just have to work harder at it, and expect better results."

Patriots QB Tom Brady said he wasn't surprised to be on the field with the team up 37-0. "No. Last year (in Miami) it came down to 60 minutes of football. We were talking about 60 minutes of football and that's what it took," he said, echoing what Bill Belichick has also relayed to reporters.

Josh Gordon on Antonio Brown: "I don't think any of us had any doubts about AB's skill set. I think it was just good for everybody to see it in an actual game. He continues to be what we expect him to be — a great wide receiver and football player. For us, it is a tremendous asset. It takes huge stress off offensive linemen, the running backs, everybody. There's no way to pinpoint one facet of our offense and try to shut us down. As you just saw, it's pretty tough to try to contain us. With him, it's a huge help. Glad to have him."

Asked if he had a sense on the severity of Isaiah Wynn's foot injury, Bill Belichick said "no." Belichick complimented Marshall Newhouse and Korey Cunningham for stepping in at OT and battling through on a hot, humid afternoon.

Bill Belichick on Antonio Brown: "We'll take a look at it on film. It was one week. There are a lot of things we can work on. But it's good to have him out there."

Newcomer Brown scores as Patriots beat Dolphins 43-0

Antonio Brown caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in his debut for the New England Patriots, and they scored twice on interception returns in a two-minute fourth-quarter span Sunday to beat the Miami Dolphins, 43-0.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

WR Antonio Brown came on to the field on the Patriots' second play and was targeted immediately by QB Tom Brady. In all, Brown played five of 11 snaps on the team's opening drive, catching three passes for 36 yards and drawing a defensive holding penalty. It was clear the Patriots wanted to get him involved early.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

The Patriots' offensive line, which has had a run of injuries and retirements that has created roster-related stress going back to spring practices, sustained another blow Sunday when starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn left the game late in the first quarter with a foot injury. Wynn's return was listed as questionable. That meant newly signed Marshall Newhouse flipped from right tackle to left tackle, and Korey Cunningham entered the game at right tackle.
