It's like, "Wow... look at that!" Laughable and tragic at the same time!
Chargers had won 5 games in a row. They were looking really good. Now, it looks like they are slumping with 3 losses in a row.

The Detroit Lions defense, ranked number one in the League coming into the game, outclassed the Miami Dolphins defense today, holding the Dolphins to a field goal and three and out on the Dolphins' last two possessions, when even a mere first down on that last possession could have iced the game for Miami.

And though Miami's defense may have been ranked number three in the League going into the game, for the second time this season they did not perform at a championship level, giving up the winning touchdown at the last minute: a championship defense stops those drives.


The previous week's victory allowed the Dolphins to shoot for another 8-8 season and gave hope for improvement, but this week's loss has put a major dent in those hopes.

The Buffalo Bills lost too today, against a competitive team; we'll see which of the two, the Dolphins or the Bills, has the mettle to bounce back on Thursday night in Miami.

Good Luck!

If the Broncos beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, they will be one game ahead of the Chiefs and lead the AFC West.

I think the Broncos will win.

So, how many Dolphins' fans will make the treck?

Are you kidding?

Hardly any fans go to the stadium in Miami, the local games are televised because the owner buys the empty seats, forget about making a trek to a cold place: anything less than 70 degrees is simply unacceptable!


Anyway, I expect the Broncos to bounce back at home and beat the Dolphins this Sunday. I also expect the Dolphins to lose on the cold road against hot conference-leading New England on December 14.

In any case, to have any chance to make the playoffs in the highly competitive AFC, the Dolphins must win four of their last six games, so that will probably mean they have to beat the NYJ Monday night on the cold road (50-50), Baltimore at home (50-50), Minnesota at home (they should) and NYJ again, but at home (they should).

So chances are they will wind up 8-8 again, but 10-6 with a shot at the playoffs is not out of the question. I don't think 9-7 will cut it no matter what.

I feel for Dolphins fans, the way the refs screwed the dolphins was just wrong. The refs is the downside of being a NFL Fan

Third game this season in which Miami defense shows it's not of championship caliber against competitive teams when it needs to be.

Offense played much better than I expected, but not sure if it's because the Denver defense is patchy. Anyway, too bad about the freak-tip interception with about four minutes left.

I didn't notice that the officiating unduly influenced the game, it appeared fair and balanced.

Miami, uncharacteristically, got into a shoot out with the Denver offense and lost.
