Some holes are simply too deep to dig out of. Some holes are a grave.
And that's what the Dolphins feel like they've dug for themselves today.
They got down 27-0 and then had a good comeback. But for the second week in a row, the comeback fell short.
"Pretty despicable," Jason Taylor called it.
"Embarrassing," linebacker Reggie Torbor said.
This team simply hasn't been ready to play at the start of the game the past two weeks. And the start of the game is kinda sorta important if you want to finish with a victory.
So the Dolphins are 7-8. They are not eliminated from playoff contention. But they are on life support. It doesn't look good.
