ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Pick the reason for this debacle -- a 19-0 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
The Dolphins gave up seven sacks.
(The Bills beat up quarterback Ryan Tannehill so thoroughly he left the game twice -- the first time with a knee injury, the second time probably to keep him from getting killed because he had no mobility. The knee injury he suffered bears scrutiny.)
Matt Moore threw two interceptions in the short period he played for Tannehill.
The running game was left back in South Florida as offensive coordinator Mike Sherman didn't call on it. Fact is, Sherman left the points back in South Florida today as well. Terrible job by him as the Dolphins were shut out for the first time since the season-fnale last year. The Dolphins had eight three-and-outs this game.
The defense could not stop the run.
And Thad Lewis -- a second-stringer now after rising from practice squad QB months ago -- beat the Dolphins for the second time this season.
I am shocked. I know, I know, I should not be. We've had the Dolphins lay eggs in important games before. But this?
Today they looked like the same old Dolphins. And that's not good.
