The Miami Dolphins ended their five game win streak when they lost to the San Francisco 49ers this past Sunday. Fans were frustrated because it was the first bad game the offense has had in a while and the Dolphins also had plenty of chances to capitalize on certain situations. But they just couldn’t execute. For most of the season, the Dolphins have been ranked in the top ten by several different sites and analyst. Did the loss sting? Yes. But right now, the Dolphins are still a playoff team.
