The Dolphins figured they could get back to .500 today.
They figured wrong.
They didn't figure on Chad Pennington throwing an interception that went for a Baltimore touchdown.
They didn't figure on having their Wildcat package declawed by the Ravens first-ranked defense.
They didn't figure Willis McGahee would come off the bench and gain 105 yards on only 19 carries for a 5.5 yard per carry average. They didn't figure rookie quarterback Joe Flacco could prosper against them.
The Dolphins least of all didn't figure Cam Cameron's offense would dominate the Miami defense. By the way, I detail the frustrations and misdeeds of the Dolphins defense here in a column I wrote for today's newspaper.
All that happened and now the Dolphins stand at 2-4. They play division leading Buffalo at home next week.
So what do you think?
