Dolphins trail 10-7 to start third quarter

It was not only an ugly first half, the Dolphins are trailing, too.

After Miami opened the game with a 12-play drive that spanned 80 yards for the first offensive TD of the season, the Miami offense has pretty much been shut down.

The running game that worked has disappeared. Pressure on Ryan Tannehill has been acute because the team is using longer drops to avoid passes being batted at the line.

The defense, meanwhile, solid early on, has struggled to cover Oakland receivers. And that 64-yard screen pass was a clinic on how not to do it.

The Dolphins are actually fortunate that they are only trailing 10-7. The Raiders had a first and goal and the 8 and had to settle for a field goal just before the half ended.

No reason why we can't get 3 out of this.

Can someone explain to me why every team we play can complete a 10/15 yard gain to their tight end at will against us? But every time we are faced with 3rd and 8/10 we throw a 5 yard crossing route? I'm not just talking about this team, this has been happening for the better part of 2 decades now, its sooooooooo frustrating to watch!!!

Lets DO IT!!!!

Great field position, home field, down by 3!

Lol Armando clowning

Go back to the short drops lol. It'l surpeise the Raiders for a couple of plays.

great punt, but better return.
Thigpen needs to be playing some downs.
What is wrong with our coaches to not see this. Speed, toughness. Raw skills at receiver? Sure, but you can't teach speed.

I wish it was blocked to change ur handle. These guys are annoying

i is YG nd posting on this blog is my job nd i is king of my job. u losers dont have real job, i do! LOL

Hartline is so overrated.

why not quick burst for Lane, to help defeat pass rush. he's a positive yardage guy.

Hartline is a stud, in more ways than one.

were in fg range...no where to go but back....*lol*

Tannehill is good, his supporting cast is just terrible.

Reggie running scared..

bush dancing like r brown

Tipped passes or not, this is it.

Four broken tackles by Bush on his way to the TD run.

Bush is a hunk. Nice.

All individual effort... Nice RB!

The run was sick!

Buccs are making Giants look terrible
Cardinals making Pats look terrible

Hartline looks good, we're actually moving the ball.

BUSH BABY!!!!

Beautiful run.

FINALLY, REGGIE FIGHTS BACK!!

Nice run by Bush.

You guys still suck.

Bush is running well, but we run block better than most teams.

....but Miami doesn't have any playmakers...

DISAPPOINTING TD
FIRELAND

I was just going to call him a scared Rabbit Too-LOL!

Bout Fcvking TIME!

Somebody wake up Shermie and tell him we scored!

Thats for the highlight reels BABY!

Now it's time to grind out Oakland and make the home town weather count!

Folks, Thigpen's contribution on that TD cannot be overlooked.
Bess wouldn't have made that happen.
Finally, ST are making a difference.

...but Miami doesn't have any playmakers...

Not true!!! We have RB's. Hence the name....

Madden style babay. :)

Does that mean that everyone who said game was over and we are going 1-15 are going away now? Or just admitting that they're stupid?

Haters with all their excuses now. Love it. Hate away.

Bush Bess and Hartline are the playmakers on O

Amen miamid20

We're still going 1-15. This changes nothing, moron.

Let's see some defense.
