Considering the offensive line’s inability to get the run game going, or protect Ryan Tannehill, has been the biggest contributing factor to Miami’s four-game losing streak, how damaging is the Jonathan Martin “Joke” incident in the Dolphins cafeteria this week?
Two teams headed in opposite directions meet in this week’s edition of Thursday Night Football, as the Cincinnati Bengals look to hand the Miami Dolphins their fifth-straight loss of the 2013 NFL season.
The Miami Dolphins started out the 2013 season with a 3-0 record, but after four straight losses; the team is teetering on the edge of having a once-promising season spiral out of control.
In danger of falling under .500 for the first time this NFL season, the Miami Dolphins travel to Foxboro looking to shock Tom Brady and the AFC East-leading, New England Patriots.
Thanks to the extra rest, the Fins submitted their first injury report in the single-digits since opening week. However in the NFL, the difference between pretenders vs. contenders lies in the ability to execute, and most of all, win the games they’re supposed to. Can Miami take a step towards reaching the AFC’s upper echelon?
With a matchup against the AFC East leading New England Patriots (5-1) slated for Week 8, the Miami Dolphins (3-2) would be wise not to take the Buffalo Bills (2-4) lightly, even without the services of rookie sensation, E.J. Manuel under center.
After a 3-0 start, the Saints and Ravens exposed some of Miami’s weaknesses, sending the Dolphins into the bye week sporting the first losing streak of the year. Having reached the quarter mark of the season, here are some early “Studs vs. Duds” awards for the 2013-14 Miami Dolphins.
After a perfect start, Miami’s losing streak is predicated on the well-documented woes of its offensive line. And while protecting Ryan Tannehill and getting the running game going aren’t the Dolphins only concerns, they certainly merit being at the top of Joe Philbin’s priority list.
With a reported 10 injured players, the Dolphins staff is working around the clock to try and have as many able bodies as possible for Sunday’s showdown with the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Opening kickoff is slated for 1:05 p.m. ET from Sun Life Stadium on CBS4.
Even though the post-Lewis era hasn’t gotten off to the start John Harbaugh envisioned, underestimating the (2-2) Baltimore Ravens could prove to be a costly mistake for Joe Philbin and the (3-1) Miami Dolphins heading into their Week 5 showdown at Sun Life Stadium.
