Dolphins Show Improvement in Recent Games
The Miami Dolphins have played a series of games after their loss to New England and demonstrate that they can compete, but ultimately fail and do not hold their leads in the fourth quarter. After games versus the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Seattle Seahawks, the Miami Dolphins stand at a record of 1-3. During the first quarter of the Buffalo Bills game, star cornerback Byron Jones suffered a groin injury that has kept him sidelined since then. The Dolphins could not stop Josh Allen as he shredded the Dolphins secondary for over 400 yards. When Thursday Night Football came around, many analysts were doubting the Dolphins and had them as the underdog, but the Dolphins won their first game of the season in a blowout over the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-13.
Then, the toughest part of the season so far came against the Seattle Seahawks as they came into the game 3-0, and the clear favorite. The Dolphins went into the game with a clear, champion mindset and they nearly pulled it off. The one problem for them was that they could not get into the endzone to score a touchdown. They scored 5 straight field goals which if it were touchdowns, they would have won the game. The only touchdown of the game from the Dolphins came at the end of the fourth quarter, when the game was already decided. Ryan Fitzpatrick did not have a good game as he threw 2 interceptions that resulted in 2 touchdowns for Seattle.
Now the Dolphins go on to San Francisco to face the 49ers, and a lot of their key players are injured and most likely will not play. Starting Quarterback and Running Back for the 49ers are injured and are questionable to play, and their D-Line is very injured after two of their players are on IR. The Dolphins have announced that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starter at Quarterback after rumors of switching over to Tua Tagovailoa, 1st round draft choice out of Alabama, was spreading. Ryan Fitzpatrick will have to play a good game against the injury riddled 49ers defense or he might get swapped out with Tagovailoa. Byron Jones has a high chance to play this week after his absence, and it should help the struggling Dolphins Secondary. We must all keep a positive mindset that the Dolphins will get a win. Fins up!
