The Miami Dolphins' Offense is Falling Apart
Can they turn it around before the playoffs?
The Miami Dolphins only scored 20 points and had to sweat out a failed hail mary attempt to beat a mediocre Raiders team coached by an interim coach and quarterbacked by a late round rookie 20-13. The Dolphins have now scored 20 or fewer points in two of their past three games.

The Dolphins had faced skepticism because they hadn’t beaten any team with a winning record. They still haven’t. But at least they would score 42 on a bad team like the Panthers and (lest we forget) 70 points on the Broncos.
The Raiders are not a good team. They might not be as bad as they looked earlier this year. Under interim coach Antonio Pierce, they have been competitive in all of their games. But they’re still not a great team.
Vegas is allowing an average of 20.5 points per game. Miami scored 20 on them. Sure, Miami scored 7 more than the Packers scored against Vegas, and 14 more than the vaunted New York Giants. But they scored 10 fewer than the Bears.
Miami’s key to success is its offense. Its defense is good. Its offense is great. Was great. Can still be great?
