Ryan Tannehill threw 3 interceptions, was sacked a couple of times and only threw for 217 yards and couldn’t find the End-Zone for his Miami Dolphins today. That wasn’t the Dolphins problem though. The Miami Dolphins were completely out played by the Tennessee Titans. It didn’t matter which side of the ball it was on, the Dolphins couldn’t compete with the Titans. Tennessee was clearly a better team. The dolphins have had a story book season so far after the way they played last year. The story book could come to a terrible end if the Dolphins can’t pull it together soon.
The Dolphins defense isn’t playing with the same conviction as the teams offense. The Dolphins defense needs to get tough and stay tough. They have to be able to keep the Dolphins in the game to give Tannehill a shot. Playing from behind isn’t the way to keep the Dolphins moving in the right direction. The Dolphins defense has to do a better job keeping the game within reach. If they continue to give up too many points, off course Tannehill is going to struggle.
The Dolphins can’t rely the rookie quarterback to pull off come from behind wins. When this kid is pressing too hard, you are going to get mistake. Mistakes in the N.F.L. lead to turn-overs and turn-overs lead to losses as the Miami Dolphins learned today. Come on Dolphins get your defense to keep Tannehill in the game. We would love to see the Dolphins have a winning season.
