Fins Lose Again

For the Miami Dolphins, home these days is anything but sweet. It seems when the Fins venture away from South Florida and Sun Life Stadium, everything goes their way. Conversely, when the Dolphins are on their home turf, the chips, as they say, don’t exactly fall the same way.

Take Sunday for example, when the Miami Dolphins were playing at Sun Life Stadium against a team in the Buffalo Bills with a 3-10 record heading into the Week 14 matchup. However, in what seems to be a replay of the Fins’ last three home games, Miami couldn’t produce enough offense and committed timely mistakes en route to a 17-14 defeat, brining their record to 7-7, including just 1-6 at home.

Miami had to work their way out of a hole to even give themselves a chance in this contest, as they got down 10-0 early in the game. At the end of the first quarter, quarterback Chad Henne threw a costly interception, one that ended in seven points for the Bills when Ryan Fitzpatrick hit David Nelson for an 18-yard touchdown. Three players later, the Fins punted back to Buffalo, who returned the ball 34 yards to put them in Miami territory, leading to a Bills 29-yard field goal and the 10-point deficit.

Miami answered back quickly with a strong drive on the ground and in the air, hitting Brandon Marshall and Anthony Fasano for long passes, while Ronnie Brown carried it twice, including a six-yard run for a TD at the 6:34 mark in the second quarter.

Buffalo extended their lead in the third with another TD, but Miami made it close when Henne hit Marshall early in the fourth quarter for the star’s third score of the season. The Dolphins had a chance to tie the game late, but the ever-reliable Dan Carpenter missed a 48-yard field goal, one of four he missed in the game, to essentially end the Dolphins’ postseason hopes in 2010.

Miami Dolphins fans only have one more week to witness the Fins in action before the end of the 2010 NFL regular season. One week from Sunday, the Dolphins face the Detroit Lions in what will end the home portion of the Dolphins’ season before the Fins head to New England to take on the Patriots in the regular season finale.
