Dolphins Game Preview: Week 15 vs. Vikings
12/15/2018 3:53pm

The Miami Dolphins will try and build on last weeks big victory when they visit the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.Miami beat the New England Patriots as time expired last Sunday, with a nifty play involving multiple laterals. The Dolphins could not afford a loss to the Patriots and now will need a rare road win. Miami remains alive in the playoff race with a 7-6 record, but it could need to win every game remaining. That could be a difficult task though, as the Dolphins are only 1-5 when playing away from Miami in 2018. LeBron James Equality Sneakers Headed to Smithsonian Kenyan Drake has four touchdowns in Miamis last three contests and all but one of those have come via the passing game. Drake has struggled to put together many yards on the ground, while splitting the running back duties with Frank Gore. Things may not get any easier against Minnesota, as it has the 12th best rushing defense in the National Football League.Ryan Tannehill has done a fine job since returning from an injury, with a passer rating over 100 in three straight games. The Dolphins are 2-1 since Tannehills return and his production has been a big reason why. Tannehill has 8 touchdowns and one interception in the last three games.Xavien Howard is officially listed as doubtful for Sundays game, which means the Dolphins will likely be without their best weapon on defense once again. Howard missed last weeks game due to minor knee surgery and remains tied for the NFL lead in interceptions with seven. New England compiled 358 yards in the air against Miamis defense last week, which was a season-high for QB Tom Brady.In addition to Howard, the Dolphins listed T.J. McDonald as questionable on their injury report. McDonald is battling an ankle injury and was limited in practice this week.The Dolphins and Vikings will take the field on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.Photo Credit: Getty Images

'My Fault': Brady Takes Blame After Pats Loss
12/10/2018 10:54am

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is taking his share of the blame for Sundays last-second loss to the Miami Dolphins.In his weekly appearance on WEEIs Mut & Callahan show, Brady accepted responsibility for a series just before halftime where he took a sack, which prevented the team from attempting a field goal in a game they ultimately lost by just one point.It was just a bad play, Brady told WEEIs Mut & Callahan on Monday morning. We called a timeout on first down, we ran a couple plays. It was third down and I thought, OK, lets not throw an interception. I had a couple other things go through my mind. I just took it for granted.You cant give away three points like that, he added. Just a very bad play by me. That should be the foremost thing that Im thinking. Unfortunately, it wasnt. Theres no excuse. Just the reality is I cant let those things happen. Its definitely my fault.Brady also addressed the final play of the game, a desperation play that included multiple laterals and wound up with the Dolphins scoring an unlikely game-winning touchdown.They made a good play, he said of the Dolphins. It was just great execution. Everyone has those plays in their offense. Its obviously a statistical anomaly when they work. It just happened to work. Its a tough way to lose, but we all contributed in one form or another.But Brady said he doesnt think there will be a hangover effect from the game.Weve had a lot of tough losses every year. Weve lost pretty important games. Whats the difference between losing by 14, losing by 50, or losing by one They all count the same. Our whole seasons ahead of us, so lets go make the most of it.When asked about another play where he appeared to favor his injured knee, Brady said his knee brace just dug into his knee the wrong way.Theres no concern. I have it braced up. Ive been dealing with a little injury. It must have twisted the wrong way. No concern.The Patriots travel to Pittsburgh next week to take on the Steelers in their final road game of the regular season.Photo Credit: Getty Images
