Dolphins lead Pats 7-6 going to 3rd quarter

I expected a high-scoring game, and we'd probably have one were it not for two untimely interceptions by Chad Henne.

After moving the ball very well on their first possession of the night, the Miami offense has been derailed by two picks, one of which made me almost jump out of my seat.

On that second-quarter interception, Henne threw a sideline route to Brian Hartline when Brandon Marshall was running wide open down the middle of the field. Rob Ninkovich intercepted the sideline pass instead.

The Patriots, meanwhile, have not managed to get in the end zone, but have gotten their kicking game untracked with two field goals.

So to the third quarter we go. Join me in the comments section.

Both INT's there was an open receiver...That's not something he's gonna fix right away...Hartline was open in the middle the first pick, Marshall in the second...Shame

Too many turnovers will be the story tomorrow and justifiably so. However, this will be the second straight week of no turnovers.

MIAMI NEED LOOK TO THE 15th QB SINCE MARINO AND...COUNTING..HENNE IS NOT THE FUTURE..SORRY CEASARS..!

Mando-what is wrong with Henne-why can't he connect with Marshall?

Henne maybe pressing too hard for underneath coverages and the pats are playing on that thought this whole game, really hasnt been any strecthing of the field with a certian 19 addition in this one!!!Defense is now trying to step up again, but for how long, i mean does anybody really expect miamis D to hold down the pats offense the whole game????

Brandon Marshall and Randy Moss have combined for zero catches, zero yards.

... onside kick.

I'm gonna untrack the Dolphins if they lose this game!

I think our best bet is to try and slow the game down a little by running the ball more with R&R. Then we can kill them with PA later in the game.

We can't keeep turning the ball over and hope to win this game. We're giving Brady & Co. too many opportunities.

we gotta run the ball to win

IMO MARSHALL WASNT AS WIDE OPEN AS YOU GUYS THOUGHT ON THE HENNE PICK. iM SURE YOU GUYS WERENT WATCHING THE FS OVER THE TOP ON THAT PLAY. bUT OF COURSE THE RECIEVER LOOKS MORE WIDE OPEN AFTER THE OTHER DEFENDERS SEE THE BALL RELEASED FROM THE QB'S HAND GOING A TOTALLY DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

QUESTIONS IS WAS HE OPEN BEFORE THE BALL LEFT HENNES HAND? THAT THE CAMERA ANGLE DIDNT SHOW US.

Yeah, what is this "untrack" stuff? Do you mean "on track"?

Armando, we are the only friggin team that can not put another team away when they want us to. Henning's play calling is terrible. He takes us backwards after we get momentum. I can't take it, when does this crap change. It feels like a curse, different names same results.

nice job by vonte. but why cant henne get the ball to marshall?

I hate the word 'Untracked'. Old School, can't relate.

I do not know why this Dolphins offense does not call for henne to look to Marshall first then elsewhere.

I know we all want to blame Henne, but he is following his progressions much of the time.

We lose back to back games at home to two straight DIV oppenents and wild card for us will be a huge reach!!!

SUPERPHIN,

My thoughts exaxtly!

Not henne, but HENNING! Although Henne's 2 ints were terrible on their own.

DOESNT HELP THAT IT SHOWS hENNING HAS DONE NOTHING SPECIAL TO GAME PLAN MARSHALL INTO THE GAME.

THE PATS GAME PLANNED hERNANDEZ INTO THE GAME WITH ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT PLAYS JUST TO GET THE BALL INTO HIS HANDS. HENNING IS TO NEANDERTHAL FOR THAT.

poizen: you know what I think? I think we need to hire an offensive coordinator from the suckiest team in the NFL who relishes the idea of having a few weapons and a QB with an arm ... and wants to make a statement to all the teams that thrashed him through the years by completely humiliating them ... THAT'S WHAT WE NEED!!!!!!!

I will blame Henne, Mando. AND the defense for not being able to get turnovers. Bottom line.

should be up more but we will be fine

henne will bounce back and we will win

defense is playing good

need marshall to make some plays

Armando: you still haven't answered the great "untracked" question!

I just dont get it, they did nothing the 1st two drives, we move the ball then bess screen looses 4. Wild cat goes nowhere... How are we the only team that cant finish?

ARMANDO,

MARSHALL IS BEING DOUBLED, THATS WHY BESS IS SO OPEN SO OFTEN. 6 CATCHES FOR 71YDS.

We're done.

Game over

Ouch.

I hate this team.

wtf

Unforgivable-worst coverage in the NFL-untouched

and also why did we not fire our special teams coach last year, the year before? We have the worst coach there. No support on the outside. Bad setup

Maybe that will force Miami to throw to Brandon Marshall

UnfreakingBelievable ST's, only miami can do that

ok im ready to start the second half.. oh crap wish the players were

So this means our special teams was "untracked"?

disaster.

Time to sit Henne. This game is getting away from us fast.

Special Teams awful, we are third best in division.

Wallace might get cut...

i think he will be gone this year

I am at a loss for words.

Okay ... so we return one here! LOL!!!!!

I'm speechless.

armando thos two INT's are on henne. Peid!'n

If we dont sit Henne now there will be more bad to come.

jesus why do we give up huge plays at such crucial times sometimes so annoying

defense has been holding so we give up a TD in 14 seconds

50 was garbage too...Whoever that was

Jason Allen wiffed on the tackle

that is just terrible!!!

pitiful

mistakes are beating us. we are not good enough yet to overcome too many mistakes. we have to play almost perfectly to win against good teams.

BRING IN CHAD PENNINGTON NOWWWWW........

Please please cut carpenter tomorrow, this Guy is garbage. No more 1st round bust and retreads at that lb position. If they sucked in dallas, they'll probably suck horribly here too

why, haven't they thrown to BM. Wow, 1st opening play in the 2nd half....sucks, were the dolphins on the field?

Armando: In his new role as 'consultant', did Parcells show up for the game tonight?

i can not believe we keep this special teams coach. We can't stop anyone on returns any game ever. We can't get past the 20 on our returns. We had Ted Ginn and only against the Jets could we get him any blocking to get a return. It is obvious we need a two new coaches. How do we win if we don't have good coaches. It starts there.

special teams are not our forte

2 yards! Take THAT New England!!!!!!
