Miami Dolphins drop another close encounter

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303

After the Jacksonville Jaguars win on a last-second Field Goal last week in London, the Dolphins must have been feeling some déjà vu this week.  With 2:00 minutes left in the 4th quarter and holding onto a one-point lead, they once again found themselves in a familiar situation.

The defense needed to keep the Atlanta Falcons out of field goal range. However, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan only took nine plays to drive the Falcons 57 yards, setting up kicker Younghoe Koo’s game-winning field goal from 32 yards as time expired. This dropped the Dolphins to a 1-6 record.

For the second week in a row, the Dolphins have given up last-second game-winning field goals. After the game Coach Brian Flores was asked about his team taking the lead with 2:00 minutes left.

What’s wrong with the Miami Dolphins?

What is wrong with the Miami Dolphins? That is the million-dollar question right now. After a 10-6  season, the Miami Dolphins have seemed to regress.

After starting the season off with a win in New England, the Dolphins have dropped their last 2 games. That has left many fans questioning what it’s going to take to turn this team around. It looked like it could come at the expense of the winless Indianapolis Colts, who were without their star lineman and a quarterback that had two very sore ankles.

Sadly, the Colts defense had other ideas. They stopped the Dolphins’ offense dead in their tracks. Which, let’s be honest, hasn’t been able to get on track since game two against Buffalo

Week 2 brought the Miami Dolphins back to reality

Week two of the 2021 NFL season brought the defending AFC East Champions Buffalo Bills to the Miami Dolphins for their home opener. Last year, they handed Miami a 56 – 26 loss to end their 2020 season.

After losing their home opener to the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 1, the Buffalo Bills looked to rebound against the Dolphins.  And rebound they did.

On Miami’s first drive of the game, the Bills defensive line caused Miami’s offensive line all kinds of issues for a quick 3 and out. Following a Dolphins punt, Bills quarterback Josh Allen wasted no time driving the Bills down the field on a 2 play, 46-yard touchdown drive that took all of 12 seconds.

After Week 1, the West is Best.

AFC West/NFC West

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

It isn’t too often I can write about both divisions I cover in just one article but after the first week in the 2021 NFL season, the AFC West and the NFC West divisions have one pretty impressive thing in common. Every team in both divisions won their first games. That makes me able to say, without question, the West is currently Best in the NFL.

Yeah yeah, it’s just the first week. And yeah yeah, none of them played a divisional opponent. But it wasn’t just the fact they won their games, but how they won them that made it impressive.

AFC East Quarterback preview

It’s the official start of the 2021 NFL season, team captains are being selected, and the first injury reports are coming out. We are starting to have that old familiar feeling…football is back.

With stadiums expected to be at full capacity, fans are eagerly awaiting to see what this 2021 season will bring.  Especially in the AFC East, where we’ll see two starting rookie quarterbacks in Zach Wilson for the New York Jets and Mac Jones for the New England Patriots.  Let’s look at all four of the teams in the division and how they look in the QB position going forward.

The Buffalo Bills, led by 3rd-year starter Josh Allen, look to be the clear favorites to repeat as AFC East champions.  With Buffalo coming up 1 game shy of the Super Bowl last season, it looks, for now, like a solid pick.

Previewing the NFC North

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Welcome back to football, Team.  We made it!  And not a moment too soon!

Let’s preview how the NFC North could look this season.

I’m going to preface this by saying, pretty much when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he was coming back, the division got a little less interesting. Because at the end of the day, the Packers are still the Packers and are the team to beat in the north. But that’s the way it is so…to the preview!

Are we overlooking the Denver Broncos?

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The Denver Broncos ended up dead last in their division last season with a 5 – 11 record, ending the season with three consecutive losses.

We know all about the quarterback issues that have plagued them since Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning left the team. And then there were the injuries that devastated the team last season, causing them to lose their future Hall of Fame linebacker and team leader, Von Miller, for the season.

All of these things equaled a horrible, no-good season in 2020 for the Broncos.

Are the issues from their last season making us overlook them this year? Are we forgetting the dynamic, young players they have added to the team? Now, I’m not saying they are Super Bowl contenders or anything… (here comes the but)

But… Continue reading “Are we overlooking the Denver Broncos?”
