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'll say this, the Dolphins did not give up. I don't think a Joe Philbin team would have been able to do what the Dolphins did in the second half. The Dolphins offense and defense played some horrible football in the first half falling 24 - 3. The Dolphins offense showed up in the second half while the defense continued to play terribly. The Dolphins almost had the comeback, but fell short with the score being 31 - 24.
