Dolphins were looking ahead before Sunday’s win over Patriots

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Even before the Miami Dolphins took the field on Sunday against the New England Patriots, they were already thinking about next year. With the Patriots’ listless performance against Miami on Sunday, they might be accused of thinking about the next two weeks. But that was not the case. New England’s uninspired play, coupled with a strange game plan, led to a 20-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium. Like often throughout their run of greatness, the Patriots…

Dolphins lay another egg, fall to Chargers

in Sports/Top Headlines by

To Miami Dolphins Coach Dan Campbell, October must seem like so long ago. When he won his first two games after taking over for the fired Joe Philbin, it appeared his team was responding to his leadership. Since that quick start, Miami has lost six of their last eight games. The latest was Sunday’s debacle at San Diego, where the Chargers, largely on the strength of four Danny Woodhead touchdowns, manhandled the Dolphins, 30-14. San Diego broke a five-game home…

Jets bad for Dolphin coaches’ job security

in Sports/Top Headlines by

To those currently on the Miami Dolphins coaching staff, here is a suggestion for increasing job security; either beat the New York Jets or put up a better struggle while losing. For the second time this season, Miami was humbled by the Jets and for the second time, heads rolled. New York bombed the Dolphins, 38-20 on Sunday and on Monday, the team fired offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. On October 4, Miami looked totally uncompetitive and was humbled by New…

Different time zone, same result: Jets bomb Dolphins

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The last time the Miami Dolphins saw the New York Jets, they were in London playing a division game five time zones away from home. On Sunday, Miami looked like they were still in London while the Jets showed up to play in New Jersey’s Met Life Stadium. New York dominated Miami 38-20 on Sunday, dominating the scoreboard and the stat sheet. New York controlled the game from start to finish as they improved to 6-5. The Dolphins slipped to…

Rashad Jones’ interception helps preserve 20-19 victory for Dolphins

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Rashad Jones made a game-saving interception in the end zone with 4:32 remaining to preserve a 20-19 victory by the Miami Dolphins over the Philadelphia Eagles. Jones picked off Eagles’ QB Mark Sanchez’s throw intended for Miles Austin, ending the Eagles final scoring threat and disappointing their screaming (and booing) fans. Scoring came in bunches as the game was a punt-fest for both teams. Miami punted 8 times while Philadelphia kicked it away 6 times. Neither team rushed for 100…

Dan Campbell says Dolphins must stay positive after latest loss

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Dan Campbell‘s aggressive optimism, so refreshing and rejuvenating for the Miami Dolphins when he first became interim coach, will be sorely tested now that the team is buried in the AFC East standings. The Dolphins are last at 3-5, and they’re the only NFL team with an 0-4 record in their division, leaving them at a disadvantage in any tiebreaker for a playoff berth. After a brief turnaround when Campbell replaced Joe Philbin a month ago, the season is again…

Former Clemson, FSU stars team up to blast Dolphins

in Sports/Top Headlines by

On Saturday, Clemson and Florida State were opponents as the Tigers beat the Seminoles, 23-13. On Sunday, a former Tiger and a former Seminole teamed up to help the Buffalo Bills smack the Miami Dolphins, 33-17. Sammy Watkins, a former Clemson standout, must have found some extra inspiration from his former school’s success. He torched the Dolphins secondary with 8 catches for 168 receiving years and a huge touchdown. Karlos Williams, the former Seminole, rushed for 110 yards and 2…
