FOXBORO, Mass. – Former Utah Utes cornerback Eric Rowe intercepted a pass by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and returns it for a touchdown.

Early in the second quarter, Rowe jumped the route for a pass intended for Julian Edelman and picked off the pass and returned it 35-yards for a touchdown.

The pick-six gave the Dolphins a 10-0 lead over the Patriots. It was his first interception of the year in the final week of the regular season. Rowe picked up his third interception of his career and his first defensive touchdown.

Rowe is playing in his first season with the Dolphins after spending three seasons with the Patriots, including a Super Bowl win. He had one pick with the Patriots back in 2016 and one in his rookie season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

About a month ago, Rowe signed a contract extension with the Dolphins. This season, he had deflected 7 passes, forced a fumble and racked up 76 tackles, including one for a loss. The former Ute was drafted in the second round, 47th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Eagles. The Dolphins did not qualify for the postseason but is trying to playing the role of spoiler for the Patriots, who are fighting for a first round bye in the playoffs.
