      Blocked Punt Seals Victory Over Vikings



      The Miami Dolphins didn't have much to play for on Sunday, despite that they were able to find a will to win. Rookie Terrence Fede Blocked a punt for a safety with less than a minute to play that ended any chance of Minnesota sending the game to overtime. It was a dramatic finish to a dramatic game. The 37-35 win put the Dolphins at 8-7 but after the Pittsburgh Steelers win today Miami was officially eliminated from the postseason.

      The Vikings came out strong, taking a 17-7 lead into halftime. Miami awoke in the second half as Ryan Tannehill lead the Dolphins to four touchdown drives. The defense was dismal again but came up with just enough to contain the Vikings late in the fourth quarter. Tannehill threw his fourth touchdown pass to rookie running back Damian Williams to tie the game with 1:11 to play. The defense held strong and forced the Vikings to punt deep in Dolphins territory. Fede took over from there blocking a punt out of the end zone for the safety and a victory.

      Owner Stephen Ross announced in the locker room after the game that Joe Philbin will return as head coach in 2015. That puts an end to all the speculation about a head coaching change for the Dolphins next year. Miami will conclude their season next week at home against division rival New York Jets.

      Miami Falls Apart In 41-13 Loss



      There were very few who expected the Miami Dolphins to defeat The New England Patriots today. There were no surprises, the Patriots wiped the floor with the Dolphins, 41-13. Miami fell apart at the seams in the second half, echoing their performance on their schedule so far.

      Joe Philbin had his team playing fired up in the first half, dominating on both sides of the ball but two costly turnovers yielded 14 easy points for the Patriots. Miami was able to pull within one point seconds before halftime after some savvy timeouts by Philbin and a 32 yard touchdown strike from quarterback Ryan Tannehill to wide receiver Mike Wallace.

      The highlights for the Dolphins ended in the first half. They were unable to muster any points in the second half and New England scored at will. Like their season, Miami's second half performance went south and didn't look back.

      The Dolphins seem to have the fight and the will to win each week but lately they can't seem to stay out of their own way. Injuries have taken their toll on the roster and the lack of depth at certain positions has put them in a bind. With that being said it is clear the Dolphins have a team that can win these games but the execution for four quarters is severely lacking. Leadership is in question and owner Stephen Ross is going to have his hands full in the coming weeks evaluating the coaching staff as the team moves forward. Miami has two more games left to play this season and the odds of any post season action are all but over. Once again there are no surprises.

      Miami's Postseason Hopes In Serious Doubt



      We have seen it before, December football in Miami, lackluster performances, heartbreak, disappointment, sound familiar? That time of the year has returned once again and the Miami Dolphins showed today things haven't changed much. After a quick start in the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens the Dolphins couldn't find a way to keep the motor running. The Ravens manhandled the Dolphins in a bruising 28-13 defeat.

      Before the home game in Miami today, the Dolphins had a firm grasp on reaching the post season but the loss today has all but crippled any chance of them advancing beyond December. They now face a daunting uphill battle of winning their final four games to have any realistic chance of making the playoffs. That task begins next Sunday against one of the best teams in the NFL right now, the New England Patriots.
