Defense can't stop late rally by Rodgers, Pack
It was a game of back and forths, unfortunately for the Miami Dolphins the Green Bay Packers had the last say. Aaron Rodgers threw a 4 yard touchdown pass to cap off a last second drive to overcome the Dolphins second half surge and win 27-24.
The Dolphins offense struggled in the first half but the defense was able to keep the Packers in check as the score was 10-3 at halftime. Everything started to click for the offense in the second half , Ryan Tannehill rallied the offense to 3 touchdown drives in the second half and grabbed the lead with a few minutes left in the game. The Packers dominated time of possession and it wore on the defense as the game concluded. The Dolphins seemed to have the game wrapped up forcing a fourth down but a timeout by Coach Joe Philbin gave the Packers new life and they were able to cap off the drive with a game winning touchdown. There were quite a few questionable coaching decisions made in the game that sparked controversy among the players.
Hopefully the Dolphins can put the missed opportunities behind them as they move forward. At 2-3, There is not a whole lot of room for error for the Dolphins and will have to find a way to put teams away when they get the lead. Next week, the Dolphins travel north to Soldier Field to face the 3-3 Chicago Bears, Sunday at 1pm.
