Dolphins’ cruise over Commanders 45-15

The saying goes, numbers don’t lie. For Sunday’s game between the Miami Dolphins and the Washington Commanders, the numbers were majorly in favor for the road Dolphins’ team. Not only did Miami dominate with 406 total yards, but they had 0 turnovers, and held possession of the football for 32:16 in the game. Efficiency was Key to the Dolphins’ success by converting 7 of 13 3rd-down attempts. Wide receiver, Tyreek Hill, recorded 5 receptions for 157 yards and 2 touchdowns. The wide-out group for Miami accumulated 283 total yards in a dominant performance for the Dolphins. The NFL MVP candidate, Tua Tagovailoa, had an afternoon that can help his cause to winning the prestigious award. Tua went 18 of 24 on passing completions for 280 yards and 2 touchdowns. His offensive awareness led to distributing passes to 7 different Miami Dolphins. Miami’s 45-point outburst is the second highest scoring game for Miami behind their 70-point game in September.

Washington is left answering questions about the second half scoring drought. The Commanders scored a 13-yard touchdown run from quarterback Sam Howell followed by a two-point conversion. Washington would convert this score in the 3rd quarter, and would not tack on another point again. The loss adds to a now four game losing streak for the Commanders. Their record now drops to 4-9 and now will confirm another losing season. Head Coach, Ron Rivera answered questions about the frustrations, “We can’t do the things we did and expect to win. We didn’t really give ourselves a chance.” Washington will head into the bye week with a 4-9 record, and will host the Los Angeles Rams on December 17th, while Miami improves to 9-3 and hosts a showdown with the struggling Tennessee Titans on Monday December 11th.
