The New England Patriots beat the Miami Dolphins 3-0 on a snowy day in Foxboro, in which conditions were poor all game at Schaefer Stadium. Finally, late in the fourth quarter, the Patriots scored the game’s only points on a 33-yard field goal by John Smith after a snowplow cleared the field. The field was a sheet of ice from a freezing rain the night before while it snowed throughout the game.
