After a 3-0 start to the season, the Miami Dolphins will enter their Week 5 bye on a disappointing note. In a game where the Dolphins didn't nearly play at the level they are capable of, their fourth quarter come back against the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens fell short, losing 26-23. The loss dropped Miami's record to 3-2.
The contest began with a battle of the kickers as Justin Tucker and Caleb Sturgis exchanged field goals on the game's first three scoring plays. With the Ravens leading 6-3, Ryan Tannehill led a seven play, 60 yard drive capped by a touchdown pass to Charles Clay to give Miami a 13-6 lead at halftime.
In the third quarter, the game began to slip away from the Dolphins. Two questionable pass interference calls against Nolan Carroll and Brent Grimes respectively allowed the Ravens' Ray Rice to score an easy touchdown from the two yard line. Baltimore followed that up with a Tucker field goal before Rice scored his second touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter to make the score 23-13 Ravens.
A Caleb Sturgis field goal cut the lead to 23-16 and created some optimism to fuel the hope of a potential Dolphins comeback. On the ensuing Ravens possession, Joe Flacco was intercepted by Reshad Jones who returned it for the game-tying touchdown, 23-23.no comments
