Bengals lead Dolphins 6-0 going to second quarter

CINCINNATI -- The Dolphins have played terrible so far.

They've committed two turnovers. They've missed tackles. They have been their own worst enemy.

And yet they only trail 6-0. Consider that a blessing because it could be much worse.

We'll see if the team can turn things around. The live blog continues in the comments section below. Join me there.

GOOD 1 4 U

You guys suck.

We'll win this one. These big black guys always get it on at the end.

D looks gassed already. You gotta give them credit for holding CINN to 2 field goals after 2 turnovers.

As bad as they've played they're only down 6-0

And the D is back on the field

Damn, hope it doesn't come down to me.

Where would the Dolphins be without Brandon Fields? lol

Armando,

Tannehill is 4 of 5 fro 49 yards and the team is playing terrible so far? Dalton 4-9 for 34 yards and the team is played terrible so far? Defence has stood tall twice now and the team is playing terrible so far?

Are we watching the same game?

The Bengals brough an A-gap blitz on third down. Exactly what Arizona did last week. Miami handled better this time but still there was pressure.

How long before the d folds up?

Is the Fumble exist for the Dolphins opponent????

So far this team's showing they are what thier record says they are. Flashes of good things arent enough.

guys i missed the first fumble, what happened?

Craig, the team IS playing terrible so far. 2 turnovers and the defense let them drive 60+ yards for a field goal in which they let them convert 20+ yards on a 4th and 2.

looks like someone is using my handle.. prob Farik... nice th

Well at least we might be put out oof our misery before half this time

Look at the bright side:

These 1st 5 games are indicating we will have great draft position.

Craig,Tannehill is not the whole team.

They've committed two turnovers and given up two scores because of it.

They've missed tackles.

They are losing.They are playing terrible. If this continues, you may be the only one thinking things are fine because Tannehill is completing passes while the rest of the team gets its ass kicked.

Ball bounces off the back of Jones' leg? Is that bad play by Jones or just a bad play? Seems like it could happen to anyone. Can't explain the Lan fumble but there's no excuse for that stuff. Take those two plays away and it was a pretty good quarter for our guys on the road.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! BEADS......

Mando,

For a small fee, I can make your postings show up in a different color. Separate you from the noise and homerisms.

Who do we take with the first pick?

Reg, again, it wasn't a fumble. Hit Jones in the back during a punt. Recovered by the Bengals. Actually a blown call by the officials

Armando,

Whjy cant we use a ss? LOL

That was Cincy's first third down conversion.

This Dolphins team is already better than last year, but they won't win much this year I think. Some raw talent and still some gaping personnel holes, so it will take another draft and free agency to make us competetive.

The voice of reason has spoken.

Armando,

The ball bounced off the back of Jones' leg. Are we ACTUALLY blaming the guy for that? Happens all the time. Completely unavoidable. Bad plays were the Lane fumble and the 4th down pass for 20 yards, otherwise the team is playing fine.

Proud of the d. They have been on the field a long time

Usual theme, by the 4th qtr the defense will be gassed and playing worse than ever.

Defence
=====================

British, CraigM?

That "bad luck" is a turnover. And it cost the Dolphins a FG.

I bet anyone Nolan gets burnt for a long TD

They are NOT playing fine. The run D is not holding up. The receivers are not getting speration. The O-line is not doing well in pass blocking.

Refs had 2 call that one..

Pick 6 would be nice

and they are not tackling well

Craig,Tannehill is not the whole team.

They've committed two turnovers and given up two scores because of it.

They've missed tackles.

They are losing.They are playing terrible. If this continues, you may be the only one thinking things are fine because Tannehill is completing passes while the rest of the team gets its ass kicked.

Nope, i'd be guilty there as well Mando.

Jack thanks for noticing.

Canadian. Proper English.

D missing tackle and playing slow

CraigM,

the 20yd 4th down completion led to 3 Bengal pts. Teams convertig o 4th down is a reoccuring theme.

Lucky break there. Terrible pass by Dalton

BRING BACK REPLACEMENT REFS

Just a question for you guys. Would you rather Miami win 4-5 games and that result in Ireland losing his job? Or would you rather Miami win 8-9 games, miss the playoffs, but Ireland retains his job?

That was tipped, who did it?

Carpenter probably getting sick right about now.

If it comes down to him again, and he misses again, I would fire him. Take my chances with some dude or dudette off the street.

Ok we need a first down so d can catch there breath

Craig M is also the voice of reason. Heed him.

Time to get some points here...Excellent field position...

Defence holds again. Hope they continue this 'terrible' play.

We need to sustain a drive to let the D rest

YG, 2 last week against the Cardinals did us in.

Lets see if we can capitalize on this great field position. Things are looking up

CraigM...I figured as much. You don't make mistakes in writing.

Armando in what city can we dig our bad luck for ever? No no no don't tell me New York, because the will bring back

Jon, lose, win top pick and fire Ireland! It's worth it to rebuild the right way! We've sacrificed for so long anyway!!!

Ireland is not the problem
