Dolphins Fall at Home to Ravens

The Miami Dolphins’ playoff hopes took a serious hit on Sunday, as the Fins fell to the Baltimore Ravens at home, 28-13.

Everything was going Miami’s way in the first quarter of the game – the Fins were leading 10-0, and Baltimore didn’t even gain a first down until the second period. But once they did the Ravens scored one touchdown on a 97-yard series just before the half and then added another 75-yard drive on their first series of the second half to take a 14-10 lead, an advantage that Miami could never recover.

In all, after that blistering 10-0 start, Miami was outscored 28-3 over the game’s final 33 minutes as they endured a heartbreaking loss at home. During that same span, they were outgained 425-161.

In what was also an area of concern leading into this matchup, the Dolphins once again showed a susceptibility to a strong opposing ground game. Miami’s previous two games had seen the Dolphins give up 479 rushing yards, and they gave up another 183 this game, giving them a three-game total of over 650. To put that three-game slide in perspective, that is an average of over 215 yards per game, while the last-ranked team in the NFL in rushing defense, the Tennessee Titans, are giving up 141.5 yards per game on the ground for the season.

While Miami entered the week with the last playoff spot, they are now in a four-way tie for 8th place in the AFC and a full three games back from the AFC East-leading New England Patriots, who they are due for a date with this weekend in Foxboro. New England, who has won eight of nine but fell to the Dolphins in the season opener this year, hasn’t lost at home to Miami since 2008.

The Miami Dolphins are still mathematically in the race for the postseason, but they need victories in their last three games to have a chance to make a playoff run. That starts this weekend at Gillette Stadium, and even though this game is on the road, did you know that you can still get tickets to this AFC East matchup from MiamiDolphinsTickets.com? This is Miami’s last road game of 2014 before they return home to the friendly confines of Sun Life Stadium.
