Ravens answer to Dolphins’ winning streak: “Never more”

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Miami Dolphins had been riding high on a six-game winning streak before traveling to Baltimore for Sunday’s game. With all due apologies to Edgar Allan Poe, “Quoth the Ravens, nevermore.” Miami was buried by the Ravens, 38-6 ending their winning streak and making them look as they did earlier in the season. The Dolphins looked like fish out water as their running game was nearly non-existent and quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered three interceptions. Baltimore, on the other hand, was…

Dolphins survive Colin Kaepernick’s statement on the field

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Whenever the name Colin Kaepernick comes up, the conversation usually centers on something other than football. His recent political statements have overwhelmed anything he has done on the football field since regaining his starting role at quarterback. Of course, that was always subject to change were he to do something newsworthy with his helmet on.  On Sunday in Miami, he changed the subject. No, the San Francisco 49ers did not beat the Miami Dolphins. Miami hung on for a 31-24…

Dolphins take advantage of kickoff mulligan to beat Jets

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Special teams giveth. Special teams taketh away. That clearly summarizes Sunday’s game between the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets. When the clock ticked down to zero, the Dolphins had a 27-23 victory. Successful teams can score, and win, many different ways. In addition to generating scoring drives, the good teams take advantage of turnovers and opportunities. Both teams did this, but it was Miami who had the last chance and the last laugh. With Miami ahead 20-16 and…

Downtrodden Florida football teams making comebacks

in Sports by

For the most part, Florida football fans — both college and pro — have not had a lot to cheer about in recent years. Lately, however, football fans around the state have had some reason to cheer on both Saturday and Sunday. Unless one was a Florida State fan, supporters of Florida’s teams had to be satisfied with an occasional strong performance. The Seminoles have been a championship contender over the past five seasons. It has been a tough go…

Dolphins dominated by Titans, 30-17

in Sports/Top Headlines by

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. The Titans, not to be mistaken for the New England Patriots, limited the struggling Miami offense to 200 yards of total offense and just eight first downs. Tennessee hogged the ball for nearly…
