Dolphins suffer shock loss to Titans 28-27

The Miami Dolphins lost again in prime time as the Tennessee Titans came in to South Florida and overturned a fourteen point deficit in the last 4:34. The Titans, who came in 4-8, became the first team to do that.

Miami’s much vaunted, high powered offense scored only two touchdowns on five red-zone possessions. After Tyreek Hill left the game with an injured ankle and Connor Williams left with a knee injury the Dolphins offence struggled most of the night.

The Dolphins had only 3 drives over 50 yards on the night, and Tua Tagovailoa was sacked five times while putting in arguably his worst performance of the season.

Dolphins offence sputters without Hill

“I think it was a legitimate team loss,” said Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel. “I think everybody had their hand in it. We all get to share the blame in my opinion. At least know the locker room felt a hundred percent responsible.”

While there was certainly enough blame to go around, the Dolphins offence failed to score a touchdown until the 4th quarter. Both Dolphins offensive touchdowns were served to them by Titans turnovers, and totalled 19 yards. The defence certainly didn’t hold up in the Titans final two drives, however, but having scored Miami’s only first half touchdown they deserve a little less of the blame.
