In what proved to be a great game for avid football viewers, the Miami Dolphins proved they can't do enough to avoid losses in the 4th quarter. After clinging onto a slim 16-13 lead and a lead since the first quarter, the Dolphins lost the game after Cam Newton found a wide open Greg Olson in the back of the end zone. The play resulted in Miami safety Chris Clemons biting on the Cam Newton's play action fake from the 1-yard line thus resulting in Olson slipping off the line for the wide-open score with 43 seconds.
However, with 43 seconds remaining, the Dolphins without any timeouts were forced to go into desparation mode and almost pulled off the win with a 60 yard pass to Mike Wallace who had trouble corralling the ball and dropped it on the 1-yard line.
For most Dolphins fans, they can see the angst and anguish of losing this clearly winnable game after the Dolphins jumped to a 16-3 lead with a 53 yard Mike Wallace touchdown pass play and three field goals from Caleb Sturgis. Everything the Dolphins appeared to execute offensively failed miserably as the Dolphins seemed content holding the 16-13 lead after 10 unanswered points by the Panthers at the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the third quarter.no comments
