WATCH: Patriots linebacker Elandon Roberts catches 38-yard touchdown from Tom Brady

New England Patriots linebacker Elandon Roberts lined up as a fullback in the third quarter against the Miami Dolphins. Then, he caught a touchdown pass from Tom Brady.

The linebacker has been a lead blocker on running plays this year. This time around, he ran a wheel route, and nobody bothered to cover him.

The result was a too-easy touchdown.


This was a huge score for the Patriots in this game, as it tied things up at 17-17. The Dolphins have been giving New England a ton of trouble on both sides of the ball. It took some trickery to even things up here.
