This wasn't the outcome the Miami Dolphins had in mind versus the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. For most Dolfans hovering over Twitter, this wasn't the type of lame duck performance they were looking for. Not to mention, the Dolphins fans in Miami who are deliberating to buy an economical 3 game flex-pack to watch the Dolphins or a 10 game pack to watch the Heat.
Recapping the game quarter by quarter, here were the big things that stood out.
First Quarter: Dolphins answer Saints first drive with a drive of their own. Connecting with Mike Wallace and then later a zone read play with quarterback Ryan Tannehill taking off for 26 yards and putting the ball in Saints territory. Dolphins on defense played porous and allowed the Saints' running back Darren Sproles to be the leading pass catcher in yardage.
Second Quarter: Dolphins cut the lead down from 14-3 with a pretty swing pass to running back Marcus Thigpen only to be tackled inside the 10. The Dolphins followed up the play with a Lamar Miller draw play up the middle for an 5 yard score.
However, defensively before halftime, the Dolphins defense allowed a touchdown to Darren Sproles as the Saints Brees called for a formation that looked like a draw and sent Sproles on a pass to the endzone and his pass went right by Dolphins corner back Nolan Carroll.no comments
