      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.

      Dolphins Late Rally Keeps Playoff Hopes Alive



      Flashback to the Miami Dolphins 2013 season and it brings back memories of a disheartening end to a hopeful year. After two unacceptable losses to AFC east division rivals, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets put an end to the Miami Dolphins playoff dreams. 2014 has been a different story, the Dolphins put an end to a long standing winless streak on Monday Night Football versus the New York Jets by rallying for a 16-13 victory.

      It wasn't the prettiest of wins the Dolphins have had this year but they showed resilience which they have lacked in past years against division foes. There was missed tackles, dropped catches, bad passes, poor kicking and questionable strategy but the team stayed focused in the end.

      The Dolphins have shown progress all year and late season wins over the Bills and Jets was exactly what this team needed to remedy the past failures that have haunted this team for many years. Miami now sits at 3-1 in the division and 6-3 overall in the AFC. The opportunity is there for the taking. Miami needs to continue overcoming obstacles as they have a formidable foe at home next Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens, a team that has beaten the Dolphins four times in a row to date. Change is a good thing this year and the Dolphins season depends on it.
