Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories on “Reaction Monday” from around the internet:
Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald says the Dolphins didn’t help themselves following a 19-0 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Morning take: Miami lost control of its own playoff destiny. But the Dolphins still have a decent chance to make the playoffs with some assistance in Week 17.
Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel writes the Dolphins’ loss was inexplicable.
Morning take: It’s hard to explain how the Dolphins failed to show up against an inferior team. Miami laid an egg at the worst possible time.
Dave George of the Palm Beach Post wonders if the Dolphins are playoff material.
Morning take: The Dolphins were swept by the Bills and their backup quarterback: Thad Lewis. That’s not the sign of a deserving playoff team, even if Miami gets in.
John Congemi from the Dolphins’ team website says the lack of a running game hampered Miami.
Morning take: The Dolphins rushed for just 14 yards on 12 carries. Miami tends to abandon the run early, and that was certainly the case against Buffalo.
