      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.

      Tannehill and Offense Bounce Back Strong



      Ryan Tannehill arguably faced his toughest adversity as an NFL quarterback this week and he responded. Tannehill led the offense to an impressive 38-14 win over the Oakland Raiders in London, England. Following a tough loss to Chiefs and placed in the middle of a questionable quarterback controversy, Tannehill made his case for being the leader of the Dolphins offense, passing for 278 yards and two touchdowns.

      Both teams came into this game injury plagued but the Dolphins had players step up on all sides of the ball. The rushing game continued to be effective providing two touchdowns. After leading the league in dropped passes through the first three weeks, there was plenty of help today from the receivers as Tannehill spread it around to nine different players.

      The defense wan't suffering from jet lag either. Cortland Finnegan recovered a fumble and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown late in the third quarter but that was just the icing on the cake. The defense forced four turnovers and never gave the Raiders a chance to get back in the game after the first drive.

      After a hectic week overseas the Dolphins get a much needed rest during their bye this week. The injuries have been no stranger to the Dolphins this season. Hopefully they can get healed up in the next two weeks and get key players like Knowshon Moreno, Mike Pouncey, Koa Misi, Randy Starks and the suspended Reshad Jones back to full strength because they will need it for their next home game versus the Green Bay Packers on October, 12 at 1pm.

      Dolphins fail to rally this week, Lose 29-10



      After a spectacular second half comeback win versus the Patriots last week the Miami Dolphins were nowhere to be found in a 29-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The game didn't fare well for the Dolphins from the get go as starting running back Knowshon Moreno suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter and will miss 4-8 weeks.

      It was a all around poor effort from the players to the coaching staff. The biggest setbacks came from special teams play. Punter Brandon Field had a punt blocked that set a Bills score. Also, The Bills returned a kickoff for a 102 yard touchdown. There weren't too many bright spots on the day , the offense failed to get in rhythm. The defense showed resiliency in the first half limiting the Bills to nine points but it wasn't enough. The good news for the Dolphins is they have 14 games left to right the ship. Next Sunday the Dolphins return home to face the Kansas City Chiefs at 4:25 pm.
