The Splash Zone 8/20/16: Dolphins Fall To Cowboys 41 - 14

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

I didn't even watch a lot of the game. Watched till the end of the first quarter and from what I've read, the defense was just terrible. I don't know if it's still a scheme thing or Vance Joseph's inexperience as a DC but this issues are going to have to be fixed. Especially tackling. In the first quarter alone I witnessed so many missed tackles. I'm going to guess that was a common occurrence last night. Good news is there is still two more preseason games to iron out some issues.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
