Patriots come back to defeat Dolphins, 27-17

FOXBOROUGH -- The Dolphins led this game 17-3 at halftime.

And then the collapse.

Miami gave up 17 points and the lead in the third quarter. Ryan Tannehill fumbled for the eighth time this season, losing his fifth and that helped the Patriots tie the game at 17.

by the time it was over, Dolphins were 27-17 losers.

The second half was marred by questionable calls -- such as a phantom pass interference on Jimmy Wilson and a holding on Dimitri Patterson. But the depth of this collapse is beyond poor officiating.

It's poor clutch play.

it's poor defense.

It's poor quarterbacking by Tannehill, who threw a terrible deep pass to Mike Wallace that was intercepted and showed little pocket awareness.

The problems are everywhere.

The Dolphins have lost four in a row now. They play again on Thursday against the Bengals at home. They will be the underdog in that game.

Things might get tougher.

The dolphin curse lives on.

to support my above comment, the team is lifeless.

lifeless.

obviously Philbin is not the answer. I don't blame him. If my son died I'd check out of life entirely.

I predicted this would be bad when we brought him on exactly 14 hours after his son died in a tragic death.

There had better be 70000 empty seats on Thursday night. The ONLY thing that the clueless owner understands is $.

The new GM better draft 5 straight brand new college QB.s eh?

The team is a joke just like South Florida. A joke.

The homers have got to be tired of being wrong for 5 years straight! LOL

Ghost, how about 76000 empty seats eh?

WHY WOULD MOORE WANT TO PLAY BEHIND THIS LINE??????

MOORE PUSHERS SOUND STUPID!!!

Dolphins = Pretenders

Whoever said why do we bother, has asked the best question of the night. The fans are no longer impportant in this game, lets be honest.

Shula, Marino, the Marks brothers, Offerdahl and Bryan Cox at Buffalo give me some memories of how much fight this club had.

I'll watch for the scores of course but my interset in this regime has gone sub-zero, these are not even men.

Patriots have the NFL and the officials in their pockets, it's obvious when you watch game after game and the schedule made every year. this is pathetic favoritism and needs to stop. somebody in the NFL needs to recognize this and do something about it, it is starting to make me sick and this doesn't just pertain to the dolphins. All I know is their day will come when they are bottom feeders. NFL football is the most vulnerable sport to poor officiating and favoritism and has the greatest effect on the outcome of games.

Where's Waldo?- Where's Wallace?
What a waist of money the way he is being used.
One good play where Sherman finally did something different on the quick smoke screen.
Being a dolphin fan is so frustrating.
dammit.

Time to sit Tannehill for a couple games and give Matt Moore another chance. Tannehill needs to learn that he has to get rid of the f'in ball. He's showing no progress mentally.

6 SACKS, but not 1 sack that can be definitively be blamed on the oline.

Am I missing something? Didn't think so.

How happy is Reggie Bush to be off this "team" ?

Cut Tannehill he's WORSE then Henne. Good thing they got that offset language in his contract.

Did you see the clueless Tover 17 sitting completely lost on the bench like waste product that he Philben Ireland and sherman are eh?

Tannehill has already sent 2 of 3 fa receivers signed this offseson to IR. There're still 9gms left to play.

Thill is completely useless long or short term.

16 turnovers in 7 games. Game over.

Tover = 4 loses and no.5 in 4 days eh?

I may not watch another football game all year until they straighten out the officiating problem, whats the point, they already know who is going to win. BIAS ,BIAS BIAS. b- SH-T

Kent " bad axe " Baxter................THAT'S WHY I JUST ERASED OVER 3000 NFL CLIPS ON .YOUTUBE...''SLICKRICKDOG411'' I'AM DONE WITH THE NFL/

Homers are crying again
jajajaja eh?

T-Puke is gonna get all the receivers hurt. Wallace hates him.

Pbin has zero guts or brains. Refs took him to the wood shed and had their way with him as he didn't even whimper.

Wimp Coach. Wimp Owner. Wimp QB.

Guaranteed, we finish 3-13 and Ireland will pass with Johnny Football still on the board.

3-5 eh?

Just another DOOOOOLLLLLLPHINNNNNN football game, only worse.

THE WORST PART IS ROSS IS SO CLUELESS ..THAT IF THE FINS WIN 3 IN A ROW IN DECEMBER ..HE KEEPS IRELAND AND THE WALKING ZOMBIE.
]

I tried to warn you.

Its the QB stupid who is tied to the owner stupid who is tied to the gm stupid who is tied the coach stupid who is married to the oc stupid eh?

AT LEAST WE WILL HAVE A REAL ZOMBIE COACHING HALLOWEEN NIGHT THIS WEEK...

Pbin has zero guts or brains. Refs took him to the wood shed and had their way with him as he didn't even whimper.

Wimp Coach. Wimp Owner. Wimp QB.

Ryan Tannehill, the worst starting QB in the NFL?

OK moron homers did you see the D all pod on the sidelines from Tovers lame play and they were beat up and knew they had to get back on the field eh?

I can't count how many Dolphin games I've seen like this over the past two decades.Dominating a game and then the momentum swings in seconds.Oh well I'm tired of stressing about. I guess they'll keep trudging along til they figure it out.

They suck homers even more than you.jajajaja eh?

Vegss should have went 5.5

Dolfan Rick.

They wont figure it out under Ross, he has no ability to put winners on then field or select coaches or GM's that know football and what it takes to win.

Wimp Coach, Wimp Owner, Wimp QB.

Ryan Tannehill = John Beck

9/11 was an inside job.

Chem trails are real too.

Haarp Rays decided the game.

===================================================

For those of you that didn't KNOW, here's PROOF POSITIVE that YG is also Home.

YG admitted to being "FIRE ROSS(as well as being busted as)" and Home always signs off with the 911/Harrpy Ray Garbage(At least he does when he's not to Drunk to remember to change his sign in/aliases. Like above-LOL).

YG, you're BUSTED yet AGAIN-LOL! This time as Home. The alcoholism is a Be-Atch Eh?

911....? Harrpy Rays....?

You believe in Ancient Alien Astronauts and think Jesus flies around in a Space Ship too-ROTFLMAO!

Remember telling us about that, or were you too Hammered that night as well Home? I mean YG.......er.......Sam.........ah.......FIRE ROSS, etc, etc(Big Sigh-LOL).

Another problem with this game IRT the officiating: Because the dolphins generate zero buzz, the calls will never be mentioned on ESPN, NBC or other news outlets except in Miami. Immediately after the game, all the talk centered on Brady's bad hand, and how NE came back to win that game. About the only thing ever mentioned about Miami is the amount of sacks that they give up.

There should be a Congressional Investigation as to how we won against Atlanta and Indy.

Those 2 games had to be rigged.

4 games straight and they can't figure out how to stop turning the ball over.

Don't pass in the second half. Even run the Wild-Cat. Wallace was effective on the reverse and Thill was a reciever.

Thill could replace Gibson at WR, because he sure as hell isn't a QB.

Ape Tamer: You are an obvious Jets fan. Go to a Jets blog, you fu.king gay dipsh.t.

The franchise is pure garbage.

Oh, by the way, gay paree, your team lost by 40 pts. today.

Ape is either a Jet or just thick. Leave him to play with himself on-line.

Boycott the Phins !!!!

BOYCOTT !!!

BOYCOTT !!!

FLY A BANNER FIRELAND FIRELAND FIRE ROSS TOO !!!

If anyone can watch that football game, the first half especially, and blame this loss on Tannehill, they cannot see the truth.

Anyone whoever watched a football game knows that momentum is so important. And when ALL the calls go against you, it is impossible to maintain momentum.

Wilson makes the best play of his career on third down and gets called for 28 yards of interference. We strip sack their QB and they get a first down at our 13. We get called for holding on third down when there is no holding.

When you see how many games the jets have won with last second calls for them, and how many we have had go against us, I give up. It is also hard to imagine that the NFL I grew up with could allow this to persist.

Anyway, I give up. I refuse to watch a sport where the playing field is not level.

Thanks for the conversations.

And what now? Proven to me today beyond a shadow of a doubt today that this is a mediocre Team. And with absolutely no hope of any change, Ireland who selects the Players on a 6 yr contract, Philbin who Coaches the Team on his second year, outside of Ross selling the Team. And even if Ross sells, what guarantee is there that the next Organization will be better than this one? Tough time for me and probably others as Fans now.

I would be happier if we were 0-7 right now. I would be more optimistic about getting a new qb.

Oh wait, we did that before and still ended up with T-turnover. Oh wait, we did that before and ended up with a LT.

Odin,

We both busted Home! Look @ my 6:28 PM post.

Monye,

You're not a moron dude.

Phins are pure garbage.

I dumped the team with tier logo change.

I'm giddy...what a great day.

Gibson out for the year too.

The players look like they have flowers behind their ears with that logo...or Spock's vulcan ears.

Just can't support this logo or franchise.

They deserve every loss.

Like i said earlier this week just keep.losing games. 3-13 WILL HELP US MUCH.MORE THAN 7-9 WOULD OF ANYWAYS. really a bad team

Ireland cant get any talent and Ross wont pay for any talent so we stink again.

Odin,

You're way off...guess again.

I'm the Trojan Man, and I banged your wife in your bed.

Blame it on Captain Morgan.

While your flying that banner drop some colon blow on the dolphins team facility building and 20 minutes later you should see Ross, Ireland, Philbin, and Sherman slide out the back door.

I guess the NFL has changed. The rules are different and refs can take pay offs without an enquiry or trial.

Philbin and Ross must know this too and go along with it for their slice of the action too.

Wow I've been such an a--hole for following the game for all these years.

6 SACKS, but not 1 sack that can be definitively be blamed on the oline.

Am I missing something? Didn't think so.

==================================================

Oh, you're "Missing Something" alright - ROTFLMFAO! The VERY FIRST SACK, Logan's strip sack was because McKinnie completely missed his assignment.

YG, DEFINE D-E-F-I-N-I-T-I-V-E..........Duh!

Hey, don't let the facts get in the way Dying Turd-LMAO and SMH ;)
