NFL: Detroit Lions at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Welp, the Dolphins were 3-0 at home but that record is now 3-1. The Lions surgically dismantled the Dolphins defense as the defense just couldn’t make a stop. The Lions only punted once, that’s how bad the Dolphins defense was yesterday. For about 2 and half quarters, the offense was pretty stagnant but started to make plays later in the game, but it was too late at that point. The Dolphins were also visited by the injury bug as several offensive players were injured during the game. On a short week with injuries, it’s gonna be a tough one Thursday against the Houston Texans.

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