Defense Can't Withstand Mile High Offense
In what was supposed to be a showcase of defensive power houses, the game between the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos turned into a offensive heavyweight match. The Broncos were able to withstand the battle and defeat the Dolphins 39-36 on a chilly Denver day.
The Dolphins controlled most of the game led by Ryan Tannehill , who passed for 228 yards and three touchdowns and also rushed for one touchdown. The Broncos however made all the right moves in the fourth quarter, scoring three consecutive touchdown drives led by Peyton Manning and running back C.J. Anderson.
Miami was hit with injury bug yet again. Early reports are suggesting cornerback Jamar Taylor may be lost for the year and tackle Ja'Wuan James had a stinger early in the game and did not return. The Dolphins now stand at 6-5, with only five games to play. The AFC is stocked with a lot of good teams this year and the Dolphins are one of them but they can't keep letting games slip through fingers or they will be watching at home again come playoff time. Miami will travel to face division rival New York Jets on Monday night.
