The Miami Dolphins' offense struggled for the second straight week as the team was handed their first loss of the season against a division opponent, falling to the New England Patriots 27-17 in Week Nine.
The game started promising with a spectacular interception by Vontae Davis in coverage of Randy Moss, but things soon unraveled.
The Dolphins' defense was unable to put pressure on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, while the Miami offense sputtered trying to implement the spread option.
The Dolphins fall to 3-5 with the loss, tied with the Buffalo Bills for the worst record in the AFC East.
While the playoffs seem unlikely, the the Dolphins at least have to chance to put together a few wins in the month of November, with their next three games against questionable opponents in Tampa Bay, Carolina, and Buffalo.
Until then, here's my video recap of the Dolphins' performance against New England:
