Quick ideas from South Florida Sun Sentinel staffers on the Miami Dolphins’ loss to the Green Bay Packers at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday:
Dave Hyde, Sports Columnist
Mike McDaniel needed this workforce to search out out what it’s wish to play in massive video games in December. They’re discovering out and it’s not fairly. Sunday’s fourth-straight loss falls on three straight interceptions by Tua Tagovailoa. Playoffs likelihood is nonetheless there. But higher play is required.
Chris Perkins, Dolphins Columnist
Tua Tagovailoa had a horrible fourth quarter with three interceptions. The protection, which allowed a median of 15.3 factors per sport at dwelling, did its job although it allowed 26 factors. But Tagovailoa wanted to be higher in an, ahem, cold-weather sport, but it surely didn’t occur.
David Furones, Dolphins Writer
It would possibly simply be one other late-season collapse for the Dolphins (8-7). Can’t win throwing three fourth-quarter interceptions in a decent sport. Winless December for Miami, however this workforce nonetheless controls its personal destiny and might get into the playoffs with wins in its last two video games or clinch with a win subsequent week in New England, plus a New York Jets loss in Seattle.
Keven Lerner, Assistant Sports Editor
Can the Dolphins beat the Patriots and Jets to get into the playoffs? Sure. Neither has a celebrity quarterback (just like the Chargers, Bills, Packers) or a protection as stout because the 49ers’. But, now the gremlins are operating wild between the ears.
Steve Svekis, Sports Senior Content Editor
All the should-be interceptions that had been dropped towards the Dolphins this season weren’t mishandled within the fourth quarter towards Green Bay. Now, the playoffs look abruptly shaky.
