Dolphins A No-Show Against Ravens

Had Sunday's game been the first round of the playoffs for the Miami Dolphins, they would have been sent home by the Baltimore Ravens.

Right from the start, the  Miami Dolphins' offense looked bad. Yes, the defense looked no better. After a three and out, the Baltimore Ravens flew down the field and scored 14 unanswered points to start the first quarter. From there the flood-gates were opened and Baltimore never looked back with a 38-6 tromping of the Fins, bringing the winning streak to a crashing halt at six.

Miami’s defensive line could not stop the run, the deep pass, the short routes, the kicker, or a parked car. It was an embarrassing game on both sides of the ball.

I felt embarrassed as a Miami Dolphins’ fan when watching in the fourth quarter the players actually gave up on that last touchdown by Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens. They actually let the touchdown in without laying a hand on the player.

Are the Baltimore Ravens that good, or were the Miami Dolphins that bad? I believe that the Ravens are a very good team and will go far in the playoffs. I also believe that Miami fell in the trap of believing their own hype and paid the price for not coming out and giving their all.

Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins’ offense could not get anything going. There were no attempts deep down the field and the run game was non-existent. The Ravens ate everything up on the line of scrimmage and shut the Dolphins down for the entire game.

Next up for the Fins is a home game with the Arizona Cardinals. Things are not looking good the Dolphins down the stretch of the season. The Jets, Buffalo, and New England wait for the Dolphins after the Cardinals come into town.
