The Splash Zone 8/15/21: Dolphins Fall To Bears In Preseason Game #1

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.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins lost their first preseason game which means the team isn’t going to win a game this year. Joking aside, the Dolphins first team units on offense and defense looked pretty solid. Offensively, the team struggled to run the ball but Tua Tagovailoa looked pretty sharp besides his one interception. The first team defense did not make things easy though and picked up where they left off from last season. The Dolphins will be heading back home to take on the Falcons next Saturday.

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