Dolphins earn their third win in upset of Eagles

Getty Images

The Dolphins are not as bad as everyone thought, and the Eagles are not as good as everyone thought.

That’s been clear for a while now, but it became crystal clear today when the Eagles went to Miami and got out-played and out-coached in a 37-31 loss to the Dolphins.

Miami’s win improves the Dolphins’ record to 3-9, a far cry from the 0-16 that some predicted, while the Eagles are now 5-7, also a far cry from what some predicted.

The good news for the Eagles is that they’re still just a game behind the 6-6 Cowboys for first place in the terrible NFC East. But it’s hard to take a team seriously as a contender if they can’t even beat the Dolphins.

Miami, however, won’t go down without a fight. Ryan Fitzpatrick had 365 passing yards and three touchdowns, and DeVante Parker had a huge game catching the ball.

The Dolphins are highly unlikely to earn the first overall pick in the draft now, but they seem to be OK with that. They’re not tanking on this season. They’re a competitive team, and if you want to beat them you’d better play well. The Eagles didn’t today.

  1. Bengals and Redskins won putting Miami in the drivers seat for Joe burrow. And what do they do? Take them selves out with a win. The definition of mediocrity forever. As a life long fan I’m really pissed off.

  2. carson wentz is a poison hes toxic he has no heart he has zero playoff wins 3 out of 4 losing seasons foles with same team wins every game foles 5 playoff wins foles 11-1 in last 12 games as an eagle mccown would be 10-2 right now

  3. The NFC East might be the worst division in the history of recorded sports.
    The Eagles, Cowboys and Giants are so bad, the Redskins might end up winning the division.

  4. The NFC East should forfeit their playoff slot to some team which wants to win from another division.

  5. Which idiot thought it was a good idea to give wentz 140 million dollars after he went 5-6 last year with the same team that win with foles? Howie Rosman is the worst gm in sports

  6. Man I’m tired of being right! As you all know, I called this. Eagles are complete garbage. While organization needs to be dismantled and fired.

    But remember, Dallas only wins the division due to phillys ineptitude. Dallas is equally as lousy.

  7. I said it before the Eagles aren’t going to make the playoffs this year and the Cowboys are going to win the NFC east.

  8. I love the fact that the Philthy team has mortgaged its future by overpaying for the league’s dumbest player, Carson Yutz. I hope you clowns enjoy the offseason at home where you can watch your one and only Snoopy Bowl victory. You will go nowhere with Yutz as your starting QB.

  9. Cowboys or Eagles make the playoffs they one and done anyways… Eagles mine as well wrap their season up. Can’t beat an 2-9 team you don’t deserve to be in the playoffs.

  10. I was watching the Carolina Paper Tigers giving the Numbskins a victory and was wondering if Washington could still win the NFC East? Essentially the Numbskins have to do is to hide their starting QB and to keep him from throwing interceptions and then using their running game. They could start to be the Baltimore Murdering Black Birds without having to cheat by using their QB as a running back.

  11. I am not the only one impressed with the coaching job of Flores, am I?

    He was given a bad roster, saw his best players on that bad roster traded away, but he has this team showing up to compete every week. Even when they have been crushed, they have not quit. Every reason to tank, but the heart not to tank.

    Maybe I am alone, but he looks like a good HC to me.

  12. “I told you last year get rid of wentz keep foles”

    Lolz the same Foles that got pulled for Minshew today because he was sucking so bad.

    Eagles

    Lolz

    That is all

  13. Wow these idiots in Miami can’t even tank correctly. I’m SOOO glad the dolphins will have a mid 1st round pick just like every other year. Still screwed oh well

    Several years ago, the Panthers made the playoffs at 7-8-1, NFC South winner. Let’s see how this plays out first.

  15. As a Miami fan I get it, you want to show heart, but come on now.. they need to be in position to only use ONE of those 1st round picks to get Burrow. NOT have to trade a few picks to do it just to prove you could win a few games this season. There are so many holes its pathetic. Listen, even Fitz knows that the team has to see what they have in Rosen so he should be playing. I get it, you want to win etc but winning 4 or 5 games is going to put them picking 7th or 8th and that means in order to get a QB we will need to use other picks to move up.
    This organization is making the fans crazy.
    Trading Tunsil and Minkah were huge mistakes. Finding a stud LT that can play for 10 seasons is hard to do.

  16. Defense just stays in zone coverage and a veteran qb ate them up in the 2nd half. Schwartz needs to go and the defensive backs are terrible, Need Seth Joyner next year as the defensive co-ordinator

  17. I’m a Dallas fan so there’s only about 4 teams I have the right to talk about. Eagles are one of them. Yall had a lot to say about us on Thanksgiving. Is there anything you want to say today?

    *******
    No the same foles who is 11-1 in his last 12 starts as an eagle

  19. The Eagles could have traded for WR Parker but were too dumb to do it and that is what the Eagles need plus a QB that can throw on time and accurately.

    ————————-

    Yes. Neither team deserves to win the division. The Eagles futility doesn’t make the Cowboys collapse any better.

  21. The people that keep saying that the Eagles should have stuck with Foles must not have seen the headline “Jaguars bench Nick Foles for Gardner Minshew” an hour and a half before this article.

  22. Not a fan of either team but Dallas fans chirping about a team only winning 1 superbowl is hilarious.

    The only way we’re watching Dallas Superbowl highlights is if someone has a working VCR and turns the TV to channel 3….

  23. I’ll say it… Mike Groh and Jim Schwartz need to go. Maybe Doug Peterson next year if he doesn’t right the team. I compare the Philadelphia Eagles to the LA Kings. Fast, bruising style won the Kings two Stanley Cups; however, teams figured them out and now they suck. The Eagles are so predictable! Groh is awful and Schwartz is consistently playing from behind. They blitz way too much and consistently exposing our mediocre CBs. Watch…The Eagles will extend Jason Peters, Agholar, the CB group, and talk Sproles out of retirement. Nothing would surprise me at this point.

  24. Good win for the Dolphins! Get the coach and culture correct. I am liking what Flores is bringing to this team. Get the right players, the dolphins can turn it around quickly.

  25. This is Karma for all those pathetic fans during that tainted SB run a couple years ago.

  26. Everyone talking about Foles…Why.. Foles was never anything when he wasn’t an Eagle..Him and the Eagles just worked for some reason… Shame it ended..

  27. our defense is horrible…..its trash. I know foles got benched today but when hes in philly hes different. that was proven in his first stint and we all know what he did in his 2nd. wentz hasnt been great but its not all his fault. hes been without receivers and when hes had them they dropped passes. i mean u hang 21 on miami u should win much less 30+ pts. its a sad state that this teams in.

  28. There are some quarterbacks that are perfectly made for a teams offense like Brady is for the Patriots and Foles is the perfect quarterback for the Eagles offense.

  29. why do head coaches think they are too smart Eagles up by 14 points in the 3rd quartwe and don’t run the ball Saders was getting 4 to 5 yards a chunk why not eat clock. They only had 19 rushing plays on the 31st ranked defense stopping the run!!

  30. Schwartz needs to go ! His defense has been the same ever since he has been in Philadelphia. Man I hope the Phillies start signing some great players so it will make us feel better.

  31. Every other team with 7 losses or more is effectively done. Only the Eagles have a chance to actually make the playoffs. The question is whether or not they can win a game to tie Dallas and then another to get past them. Pathetic…and we are all watching.

    =============================================================================

    Sounds like you’re the only one who doesn’t realize by now that Flores isn’t worried about where they pick in the draft, he wants to win.

    Besides that, they have enough draft picks available to them, they can move anywhere they want in the draft.

  33. @screamingyellow

    You obviously didn’t watch that game and only took a look at the boxscore. A third of that yardage came against prevent defense. Wentz was around 5 yards per attempt until Miami went up by 2 scores. Couldn’t score in the second half and defense gifted him one of those TDs.

    He was missing wide open receivers as usual. Alshon should have had a few more bombs delivered to him. More balls sailing over receivers in the flat. It was not a good game, despite the misleading “final” tally.

    Foles may have been benched for Minshew, but he was magical with Philly and they should have stayed with the magic. Better a magical champion than the smoke and mirrors of Wentz.

    To borrow the words of those Wentz cultists who knock Foles, I guess Wentz’s 2017 mvp season was just him “catching lightning in a bottle”.

  34. Three fake mantras were squelched. 1) Miami is tanking. 2) Dallas should fire their coach. 3) Phil is the team to beat.

    ————————————————————————————
    Ancient history. Not the same team now, and Foles is clearly not the same player.

  36. To the Wentz haters, this loss was not on Wentz. 31 points should be enough to beat the dolphins. Miami scored 5tds on 5 straight possessions. That’s horrible and has nothing to do with Wentz. Db’s couldnt locate the ball and got out-worked on multiple jump balls. The whole team sucks and did not play well enough.

    …………………………..
    That SB LII loss ain’t ever goin’ away !
    Brady threw for 500 yds and still lost !
    And I ‘ll throw in a ‘SKOL’ too !

  39. So you clowns screaming to tank for Tua ….. name all the Super Bowl winning QB’s selected in the top 10 of the first round since the inception of the Super Bowl ??…..

  40. Maybe the Eagles should have come into Miami with a bit more respect for the Fins.
    They got a lesson today, and probably are not going to any playoffs.

  41. Here we go…more trashing Wentz even though he played well overall today. This is on the D, Doug’s play calling and the officiating. Doug refuses to run the ball for some unknown reason. The secondary is straight trash as is Schwartz’s zone scheme. He doesn’t adjust. Or, he goes away from what’s working. The officiating was one sided. We were getting called for every ticky tack thing while Miami was getting with picks, face masks and holding.

    Also, we suck.

    ________________________________________________________________________________________
    No. Look at the Raiders and Rams. All of these guys sign mediocre QB’s to huge extensions. It’s almost like they have FOMO. The Rams wanted Goof to “feel” like he was wanted long term”. The Titans look brilliant. Lets watch Chicago give Biscuit $140 mil after two good games. That should solidify the idiocy for you. The only guys that should be considered a “Franchise QB”, are guys who you don’t want the ball in their hands with two minutes left because they themselves can actually beat you.

  43. What in the world makes all of you Dolphin fans think that they HAVE to pick a QB in the 1st round this coming year? It will be a 3-5 year process to get this team to a serious, sustainable, playoff contender. A QB will come, but Flores has to show what HE can do FIRST, or the rest doesn’t freakin matter. I think he’s shown quite a bit, with next to nothing.

  44. We flat out sucked today. Jalen Mills is complete garbage and Schwartz doesn’t know how to adjust. Team has zero discipline this year and that’s on the coaches. Wentz hasn’t been great this year but 31 points should beat the Dolphins. This team doesn’t deserve to win if they play this poorly. The coaches need to start holding players accountable and this week that falls on the defense. Congrats on the win Dolphins fans.

    Wentz could throw 800 yards and 12 touchdowns in a game and Danny Woodson would come in and say he’s bad. Fake account just to rile up Eagles fans. Either a Patriots fan, Cowboys or Vikings.
    Wentz hasn’t been great this year but this game isn’t on him

    Win something this century and we’ll talk.

  49. Face it, the Eagles and Cowboys will both be home watching the playoffs. Any playoff team has to be salivating at the thought of playing either team in the first round. Like playing a scrimmage before the real deal. The Giants have a better shot at winning a playoff game this year. The Redskins, well they just suck. Now that they have Jameis Winston the second behind center.

    Yes. Neither team deserves to win the division. The Eagles futility doesn’t make the Cowboys collapse any better.

    _____________________________

    I don’t understand that logic. They have the best record in the East. The Cowboys are 4-0 in the division. They also have a better conference record. They also have all the head to head victories. So the Cowboys do deserve to win the division. I’m confused on that part of your argument.

    Who do you think deserves to win the division? Please explain…

    The Cowboys might not make any noise in the playoffs. I’ve been well aware of that since week 5. Yall however claimed the whole season Cowboys havent played anyone then it was Cowboys havent beat anybody good. Which is all true. This is the part that makes no sense…

    We destroyed yall. Yall still talked. We lost to the Bills and yall came in the comment section saying all kinds of stuff. Then yall lose to the Dolphins….

    I guess my real question is why do you guys continue to talk?

  51. Foles put up 41 points in super bowl against belichk Wentz can’t even put up 38 points vs an awful twnking Dolphins team Which idiot thought it was a good idea to give wentz 140 million dollars after he went 5-6 last year with the same team that won with foles? Howie Rosman is the worst gm in sports Wentz zero playoff wins foles since 2017 5 playoff wins with same team

  52. @anthony berry

    “Y’all” are the only ones talking. Between philly and Dallas, philly deserves to talk. Five nfc championship games and two super bowl appearances vs two stinking playoff wins since the Clinton administration. So who is more relevant?

  53. @eaglesofsatan

    First off if you’re going to correct spelling “@ Anthony Berry” is how you would write that.

    Who is more relevant? That depends on a lot of different factors to be honest.

    This season the Cowboys are more relevant based on definition. Last 15 years – Eagles, last 30 – Cowboys, and franchise history – Cowboys.

    There isn’t a sports team worth more than the Cowboys on Earth so economically the Cowboys are more relevant.

    So if you’re truly asking me the Cowboys are more relevant, in my opinion, but I could be biased.

  54. Most Super Bowls
    1. Steelers, Patriots (6 each)

    (The Eagles won 1, Yay!).
    So instead of watching 6 episodes of “Americas Game”, I’ll just plan on watching the Eagles one episodes 6x.

    Still a fan! (But they don’t make it easy, do they?)
