Dolphins CB Bobby McCain ejected for throwing punch

It appears Bobby McCain let his frustrations get the best of him in Sunday's 35-17 loss to the New England Patriots.

The third-year Miami Dolphins cornerback was ejected from the game after throwing punch and drawing a unnecessary roughness penalty on a play in the third quarter. McCain threw a punch at wide receiver Danny Amendola after a 5-yard run by Patriots running back Dion Lewis.

The ensuring penalty helped keep the Patriots' drive alive, eventually leading to a 15-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski that allowed New England to take a 28-10 lead.

McCain intercepted a Brady pass intended for Amendola in the first half.

Losing McCain for the remainder of the game certainly doesn't help Miami's quest to put a cap on the potent Brady passing attack.
