It’s still hard to believe that the Miami Dolphins just laid down and died against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. The Dolphins may have lost the top spot in the AFC, but they still sit at #2 and still control their playoff destiny. But it was such a gut punch to witness a defeat like that, when confidence was so high. It was supposed to be one of the easier games for the Dolphins and with some tougher opponents coming up, it makes you a little nervous that we could see a repeat of last December where the team just couldn’t win a game.
