Dolphins 34 – Patriots 33

Let me first start out by saying…”Alright Miami!” because that was my very first thought after watching the Dolphins pull off a miracle last play to win the game. I could hear good ole Jim “Mad Dog” Mandich’s voice in my head.

A fitting end to a very typical AFC East match-up. A game that saw nine lead changes, which now stands as the second most in an NFL game.

Don’t think many fans would have expected that outcome when it comes to a shoot-out with future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

Perfect timing for a Dolphins bye week

Packers 31 – Dolphins 12

The Dolphins bye week couldn’t come at a better time.

Facing the Green Bay Packers in week 10 would prove to be a tall task, regardless of injuries. After seeing the Dolphins inactive list before the game, most gave the Dolphins an almost no chance of winning.

However, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase found some holes and was able to run the ball.  Dolphins drove the length of the field only to abandon the run on a short field inside the 20. Gase chose to go shotgun with an empty backfield.

A bad snap hit QB Brock Osweiler’s hands and sailed right behind him, only to be recovered by the Packers, who then marched right down the field and scored. Pretty much the way the whole game went.

A mystery surrounds Dolphins win against the Jets

Dolphins 13 – Jets 6

There is no way I could start this article in any way other than this: I have no idea why All-Pro safety Reshad Jones removed himself from the game.

I watched him closely during the game and he looked like he had a slight limp. I never got confirmation he was injured in any way, leaving a cloud of mystery to why he wasn’t out on the field.

We even saw defensive end Cameron Wake talk to him for about 10 minutes. When Cam was questioned about that conversation, his response was “That is between him and I”.

Was the Dolphins-Bears game officiating one-sided?

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Since I am neither a player nor a season ticket holder, I am calling out the NFL Officiating team.

What appears to be a one-sided officiating crew down in Miami must be stated, reviewed and reprimanded for the preposterous penalties against the Bears and all the missed penalties against the Dolphins.

Let’s review a few, in case you have no idea what you “may” have missed.

Dolphins 31 – Bears 28 (OT)

Let me just start out by saying this:  We all knew it wasn’t gonna be easy, but how many knew it would have ended like that??

I could spend 5 pages on stats and tell you all what most of you guys have already read, but I want to focus this article on us, the fans.  Man, the emotions we all go through with these types of games!

First off, lets start at the beginning.  Be honest y’all, did you really think back up quarterback Brock Osweiler was the answer?  I sure didn’t, and I was legit worried.  Then I started to calm down and thought about it some.

The incredible takeaways from a gut-wrenching Bears loss

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63 

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. The Chicago Bears had rallied back in the second half only to end in a gut-wrenching overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins 31-28. Again, it was left to who was the better kicker and yesterday that title belonged to the Dolphins’ Jason Sanders.

This loss hurts deep, real deep. The kind of deep that one loses sleep over because it was right there.

How could the Bears lose to backup quarterback Brock Osweiler again? Osweiler. He now holds a 3-0 record against the Bears.

I… just… can’t.

Cincinnati Bengals off to a cool 4-1 start

Marquita Quinones OTFB reporter

By Marquita Quinones //@Latinlove729

Cincinnati Bengals are off to a cool start with a 4-1 record heading into our sixth week. Although the path to victory has not been a smooth one the Bengals have managed to only fall behind the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, which puts them in second place in the AFC.

Examples of that “rocky path” are their defeat over the Atlanta Falcons by one point, and then having to overcome a 17-point deficit this past Sunday to beat the Miami Dolphins at home. Luckily, due to a couple of wild touchdowns from defensive ends Sam Hubbard and Michael Johnson, they were able to beat a team that was favored to win by six points in another come-from-behind victory.

This style of winning has caused some to be cautiously optimistic and not ready to declare this “the year”. In fact, most believe the Bengals should’ve dominated a team like the Dolphins, but let’s face it even good teams have off weeks. The difference between a legitimate contender and an average team is finding a way to win, even when they aren’t playing their best game. That is what Cincinnati did this week.

Fins Up, Bear Down: Who Emerges the Victor?

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The 3-1 Chicago Bears are now refreshed coming off an early bye week. It was not ideally the best situation having already built a winning momentum. But the NFL gods deemed it so and now they hit the road with fresh legs against the 3-2 Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins have just come off a terrible beatdown by the Cincinnati Bengals and continue to pile up injuries in the process. Especially with a banged up offensive line, quarterback Ryan Tannehill may be in deep trouble against a fierce Chicago defense.

As a Bears fan, I expect there to be at least 3 sacks and 2 fumbles in this game, not to mention an interception or two. But then again, that could also happen to Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky if the protection isn’t there.
