Ravens lead Dolphins 13-3 going to 3rd quarter

Well, do you want the good news or the bad news first?

The good news is the last time the Dolphins played Baltimore, way back in October, the Ravens held a 17-3 lead on Miami to open the third quarter.

So the Dolphins have made up some ground in the past two months or so.

The bad news? Well, they're still losing at halftime today. The Dolphins trail Baltimore 13-3 going into the third quarter.

It has been a nightmare half for Chad Pennington. Pennington has thrown TWO interceptions today while completing only 7 of 12 passes for 77 yards. One of those interceptions was returned 64 yards for a TD by Ed Reed. That is Baltimore's only touchdown of the day so far.

Terrible.

Oh, there is more bad news: Receiver Davone Bess has a thumb injury and missed most of the second quarter. So the Dolphins, which started the day with only three active receivers, are down to two.

Colleague David J. Neal tells me the Dolphins have gone 12 consecutive postseason quarters without a touchdown.

Anyway, the live blog continues in the comments section below.

We're killing ourselves. All our good fortunes were used up during the season.

Mando - trust the local media will write this up positively? It'd be a real shame if the season is overshadowed by one game.

Another turn over! Cobbs looking like a young player there. Wow this one hurts...

we look like the 1-15 team. we were a mirage

take the ball away + score!

Our D has to step up and generate a momentum change. Otherwise we are dead.

id say if they get a td put in henne just to get some experience. cant do much worse

Dolphins should just PUNT IT BACK on 1st down when they get the ball rather than trying to run any offensive plays. KEep the score respectable LMAO.

we can't go down 20 to 3 here folks, need to hold them to 3 points!

I wish we had lost (a close one) last week. Now, everything the Dolphins have achieved this year will be negated by this terrible game.

Thats it folks. Well it was one hell of a ride. Im going to order my grey hat and hope to meet lots of Jets and Pats fans whilst wearing it round Brisbane and the cities of Australia. Sucks bigtime to go out the that F77cker Can Cameron, but thats our fate.

intercept

No pass rush and turnovers done us in today!

Still a awesome season.

I'm really impressed with Flacco. He's obviously got the arm, and he is getting a lot of time, but he throws a great spiral and he looks really savvy.

unreal

No one wants to tackle McClain

This is a difference in talent. They have far more talent than we do.

Offensive pass int not called, houchaly was too busy pumping up on the sidelines

Double team block in Ferguson wipes out middle of the interior line. And Crowder ran himself out of the play. Terrible.

We just don't have the players

good season. man i really thought we had a chance today. was pissed everyone was dissing us but guess love is blind.

team just gave up on that play.

How about this:
Blow out playoff loss.
Parcells leaving.
Tough schedule next year.

It was nice while it lasted

WHY, WHY, WHY do we get blown out today. WHY?

Not even fun.

Could have saw it coming based on what happened yesterday. Not every game would be close and it is ours.

Need to score here to keep it respectable! Don't expect the birds to pass the ball much the rest of the game.

Another reason to hate Sham Cam!!!!

Too bad for a poor performance today - lost lots of momentum we worked hard for. Unfortunately, we are making Flacco look like John Elway with no pass rush; our front 3 is getting beat badly on defense and our front 5 on offense are getting man handled every play.

We need to add a WR, DL and LB to this team and we will be fine. Remember where we were last year at this time folks

i at least wanted them to play a great game even if they lost. this is not a good way to go into the offseason. doubting yourself.

I guess Crowder is "too poor" to tackle or "to poor" to run to the ball.

Doen't Crowder always over run the play? Who can we get to replace him?

FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: RAVENS 37, DOLPHINS 3.

ENJOY YOUR OFFSEASON DOLFANS. YOUR TEAM WAS A FLUKE AND YOU ONLY MADE THE PLAYOFFS BY (BARELY) BEATING COMPLETELY PATHETIC TEAMS.

SAD THING IS, YOU DONT EVEN GET A HIGH DRAFT PICK NEXT YEAR. LOLOL.

4 turnovers, you can not win footbal games that way!!!

Well - no one gave this team any credit all week and I see know that they were right. This is truly a poor poor effort - about the same as the game against Arizona.

........dont touch that dial folks, the champ is here........

Why not bring Henne in for at least a couple of drives. It may give the Ravens a problem. Penningtons dinks and dunk magic will not be enough. The Ravens are much better as a team, but this is embarrasing.

Lookout for the blowout now, let's hope this isn't 40-3 at the end of the day.

One last time: I BELIEVE !!! Score a TD on next possession!! Otherwise we can open the bottle to salute a great season.

Mando would look good plugging the middle.

OK, who wants to guess how long until Joey Porter commits an out-of-frustration 15-yard penalty?

This game rivals the Jacksonville pasting in Marino's last game.

Team has quit!!

Would someone please fire our horrible offensive corrdinator now. ALl he does is gimick plays that cost us turnovers and never runs the ball eventhough we are a running team. He should step down for the good of the team.

Why do they slip so much???????

Hopefully, the Parcells part doesn't happen. He did not llok happy in that booth.

Pennington never deserved the NFL MVP, and right now he doesnt deserve to be our starting QB. Henne please, but it will never happen, Sparano has CP in the highest regard,

Dumb Ross just told Parcells that he's going with King Carl the idiot

Ted Ginn tripping has cost us the game. When will they trade this skinny littl bum?

give Henne a shot at least he has a stronger arm and mobile....can't do worse than 3 TO's.

Parcells has not won a playoff game since the 98 season.

Crybabies

13 turnovers all year and then this ??? Look after the ball for gods sake

Suspiciously absent from this game:

Fasano
Porter
Ginn

I wouldn't mind seeing Henne either, but realistically that sends a bad message to both Pennington and to the team - panic.

Imagine Henne getting some work against this nasty defense? I think he is probably pissing down his leg praying he doesn't have to go in.

I hate Cam Cameron, Hate the purple Ravens but will give kudos to their defense - it is loaded. If they give credit to Cam again - i will puke - their defense won this game, not their offensive game plan.

DOLPHINS ARE A 5-11 TEAM MASQUERADING AS AN 11-5 TEAM. SAD THING IS, YOU GET A LATE ROUND DRAFT PICK THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF YOUR FLUKE RECORD!!

Trust me Parcells is gone. He is not turning down $12 mil. Why do you think he put it in the contract? Huizenga new he was selling and new the new owner would be on the hook for the $.

Looks like we've got some Dolphins caught in the Tuna net.

The wise Ric Flair once spaketh:

"WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

Suck it one more time, homos.


At last Chet. Someone else argees with me.

Brown got angry. Hope that sentiment stays.

Go Ronnie

I love all these fans whose teams are out of the playoffs spending time calling us flukes.

The Dolphins might not win. But you definitely want to see them put up a fight. That pass recept by Brown suggest they will do that. I hope.

thats a start
why are we not throwing to the TEs
