Miami Dolphins
In a game filled with mental mistakes and execution errors, the Miami Dolphins were able to find a way to win yet another tough road test, beating the Green Bay Packers 23 to 20 in overtime. Miami's third straight road win puts their record at 3-2 and allows them to keep pace within the division. Perhaps more importantly, two of Miami's most...

Hugo, Congrats on your Dolphins victory. HUGE road win! I really didn't think they had much of a chance at Lambeau but the Packers are struggling this season.

The AFC east is a brutal division. Do you have hope that the Dolphins can make the playoffs? The Jets and Pats are really playing well.....

My Cowboys are 1-4....but I'm hopeful. If they eliminate the penalties, they're as good as any team in the league.

I agree with you about Wake...he's a monster and will take the league by storm once he figures it out. He isn't even close to playing at full potential yet. I thought the offense was anemic and lacked any creativity in play calling. It was flat and awful...all except for the tide end screen. That was a good call at the right time. Miami needs to study the Texans Offense....they get the ball to their playmakers in the endzone where it counts.

you cannot blame Bell for the long TD pass. Miami was in a man under situation which means the corners have to jam their receivers to the outside cuz middle help won't be there. The classic double move got Vontae Davis to bite and Jennings was down the middle and off to the races. In man under you have to play off and jam in first 5 yards to the outside. it gives your D ends and a possible blitzing saftey to get to the qb. When executed properly you can kill a QB or get the outside pick.

@Cowgirl - Thanks! Yeah, it was a big win for the team. I try not to look too far into the future. My mindset is always to just take it one game at a time (like the coaches and players do). So for now, I'll I'm interested in in is how Miami performs against the Steelers.

@JimmyD - I'm no NFL defensive coordinator, but I'm fairly sure that even in man under, the lone safety is still responsible for the deep middle. If you watch the replay, it looks fairly apparent that Bell was caught over-comitting, but again, I'm no defensive coordinator.
