The Miami Dolphins lost 21-11 on Sunday, dropping to 0-1 on the season at the hands of their AFC East division rivals, the New England Patriots. It was a game full of frustration for Dolphins fans as the offense never seemed to find a rhythm and the defense struggled to stop the run. Football is a team game, and the Dolphins definitely lost as a team, but there were some strong individual performances on the day.
The first “game ball” being given out this week is for linebacker Jerome Baker. It was not a perfect performance for Miami’s every-down linebacker, but it was a really strong one.
