The road to history remains paved: the Dolphins fell to 0-13, losing by 21 on the road. The Patriots improved to 13-0, winning by 21 at home.
The Fins have looked bad enough the last couple weeks to give me a lot more faith in them (and these games were considered “winnable”. Ha!):
…rookie Dolphins starter John Beck was untouched in the pocket when the ball slipped out of his hand and fell directly into Wilson’s arms, allowing the converted receiver to score his second defensive touchdown this year….
[Dolphins backup QB] Lemon threw two interceptions including one picked off by Whitner after the quarterback attempted a play-action fake with no one in his backfield. [emphasis mine]
But now’s not the time to get overconfident.
The post’s title is a reference to a muffed call by the Dolphins’ radio play-by-play guy some time back; I think it was earlier this season. It was the Dolphins’ opponent that had scored a TD, so he had to quickly cover himself by slapping the “against them” at the end.
Or so I hear.
If anyone knows where I can find an audio clip of that call, please let me know; you will gain my eternal gratitude.
