Baltimore Ravens 59 – Miami Dolphins 10

The Dolphins opened up the 2019 NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens. A team that the Dolphins often have a tough time winning against. Today brought new meaning to tough time.

The Dolphins only managed 10 points before the half. Those points came from a 54-yard field goal by kicker Jason Sanders, then late into the second quarter, starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick found wide receiver Preston Williams for a 6-yard touchdown.
