The Miami Dolphins are good. They don’t seem to be nice but.

The Philadelphia Eagles may not be nice but this season both, however they’re on a distinct tier than Miami. The Eagles made the performs they wanted to Sunday, with a lot of them coming from receiver A.J. Brown, and the Eagles received 31-17 in a battle of groups that had been 5-1 coming in.

We all know what to anticipate from the Eagles, although it has been harder than obligatory at occasions this season. Philadelphia is a Tremendous Bowl contender, regardless of a few of its early struggles. Miami remains to be an unknown with a rising repute: The Dolphins and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa can stack up oodles of yards and factors in opposition to horrible defenses, however they are not but prepared to try this in opposition to a contender. And maybe meaning they are not contenders themselves.

The Dolphins have confronted two onerous checks this season. They misplaced on the Buffalo Payments by 28 factors. Although Sunday night time’s sport was nearer, it was one more reason to consider the Dolphins’ ceiling is perhaps restricted. They don’t seem to be going to face groups such because the Panthers, Giants or Broncos within the playoffs, in any case.

Dolphins’ offense has some hassle

The Dolphins had been one-dimensional immediately. Miami’s run sport, which was averaging 181.8 yards per sport and 6.5 yards per carry, was shut down immediately. The Dolphins had -7 speeding yards within the first half in opposition to the Eagles.

Tagovailoa and wideout Tyreek Hill saved the Dolphins within the sport. Hill beat a double-team and obtained deep for a 27-yard landing within the remaining minute of the primary half. The Dolphins hadn’t performed nicely. They had been down three offensive linemen resulting from accidents however had been nonetheless trailing simply 17-10 at halftime.

Their protection obtained an enormous play to even the rating. Jalen Hurts’ move was batted on the line by blitzing cornerback Kader Kohou, and linebacker Jerome Baker reacted quick and caught it. He took the interception a straightforward 22 yards to the tip zone to tie the sport.

That was Hurts’ eighth interception of the season, already two greater than he had all of final season. However he bounced again shortly. Hurts led a drive and hit A.J. Brown for a landing to take again a 24-17 lead. The Dolphins’ protection had performed nicely, however a cease there would’ve been enormous, and Miami could not get it.

There was nonetheless an extended strategy to go within the sport, however that reply by the Eagles took again the momentum.

Eagles prolong their lead

The Eagles obtained an enormous interception early within the fourth quarter. Raheem Mostert and Jaylen Waddle ran their routes too shut to one another, seemingly with one among them operating the unsuitable route, which allowed Darius Slay Jr. to drift over and intercept Tagovailoa’s move. Then the Eagles confronted a fourth-and-1, and after initially sending out the punt group, they referred to as timeout, ran the “Brotherly Shove” sneak and obtained the primary down. A couple of performs later, they ran the sneak once more and obtained it as a result of no protection can cease the Eagles’ signature play.

Brown made a play after that to assist put the sport away. Hurts stood in in opposition to the push, threw deep to Brown and made a catch in protection for 42 yards. That arrange a landing and a 31-17 lead with just some minutes left. The Dolphins battled, however in the end they weren’t adequate to maintain up with the Eagles. Similar to they weren’t adequate to maintain up with the Payments in Week 4.

Miami is a proficient, enjoyable group that would proceed to get higher because the season goes on. It is simply not fairly on the identical airplane because the elite groups but, as Miami’s two losses have proven. The Dolphins face the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs in Germany in two weeks. We’ll see in the event that they make any progress earlier than then.
