Miami Dolphins Lose To Buffalo Bills 17-14 After Four Missed Field Goals

Surprisingly, Chad Henne wasn't the reason the Miami Dolphins lost this week's game against the Buffalo Bills.

This time it was Dan Carpenter's fault.

Carpenter missed four field goals from long distances to cut the string that was holding up the Miami Dolphins slim playoff chances. The Dolphins are officially out of the playoffs with this loss, and now they can begin focusing on what changes need to be made during the off-season to play better next year.

Dan Henning didn't have the best play calling, but he wasn't terrible. There were a few times where I questioned what the offense did, but it wasn't nearly as bad as it has been in past games this season.

Chad Henne actually played well enough to beat a team like the Bills. He wasn't anything spectacular, but he didn't cost Miami the game like I thought he would. I still don't think he should be the starter because he isn't able to beat a team like the Bills on his own, but that is just my opinion.

Brandon Marshall also had a good game, with 11 receptions for 106 yards and a touchdown. I guess it is still possible for him to reach 100 receptions for the season, but he needs to get 29 receptions in two games. He has had 22 receptions in a game before, so it isn't beyond the realm of possibility. It still isn't likely, though.

I can honestly say that I am happy Miami lost this game. Each loss gives them a higher pick in the NFL Draft, and hopefully puts the Dolphins closer to drafting a top-tier quarterback.

Thanks for reading, and I will talk to you guys again tomorrow.
