Steelers send Dolphins home for the winter

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Miami Dolphins’ stay in the NFL playoffs was brief, but at least they got there. On Sunday afternoon, the Pittsburgh Steelers had their way with Miami in a 30-12 rout at Heinz Field. Despite the score and the fact Steelers’ running back Le’Veon Bell set a franchise playoff rushing record with 167 yards, Miami had their chances. Three costly turnovers and a devastating penalty proved fatal, however. Early on, the Dolphins looked like they did not belong. If Bell…

Perhaps the job of turning around the Miami Dolphins is a bit more complicated than first-year coach Adam Gase anticipated. Sunday’s 30-17 home loss to the Tennessee Titans shows there are still plenty of things to fix on both sides of the ball. It was complete domination.

Some Dolphins are playing for their jobs on Thursday

in Sports by

This week’s Thursday Night Football Game in Cincinnati features two teams with 1-2 records. Few are surprised the Miami Dolphins carry that record, but the Cincinnati Bengals have deeply disappointed their fans by losing their last two games.

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…
