Dolphins Allow Winning TD With 3 Seconds To Go

The Dolphins surrendered the game winner with only three seconds left on Sunday

The Miami Dolphins suffered a tough loss on Sunday when the Green Bay Packers scored with three seconds to go for a 27-24 win.

The Dolphins scored 14 points in the fourth quarter and looked like they were about to win their second consecutive game. The win would've been big for Miami as Green Bay is one of the stronger opponents in the entire NFL. The comeback effort ended up being all for nothing however when Aaron Rodgers led his Packers to the win.

Ryan Tannehill started the game slow but turned things around in the fourth quarter as he drove Miami down the field. His 79-yard drive that culminated in a touchdown with about nine minutes to go had Miami on top by seven. The Packers would cut that to four a few minutes later on a field goal and then ultimately win the game on the final drive.

Tannehill ended up throwing for 231 yards in a 20-31 effort that featured a pair of touchdown passes and also two interceptions. The quarterback was also sacked once for seven yards. The effort was good for an 81.5 rating which would've been substantially lower if not for the solid fourth quarter.

Tannehill did not only use his arm in this game as he also rushed three times for 49 yards. Lamar Miller only rushed for four more yards in his 53-yard day on 14 carries. Rounding out the ground attack was Knowshon Moreno who suited up for the first time since the second week of the year.

Moreno was limited in his return only handling the ball six times for ten yards. It is likely that Moreno will see more action next week as he slowly takes over primary running duties again. Until then, Miller should continue to see a few extra snaps.

Jarvis Landry and Mike Wallace each caught a touchdown with Landry having the bigger day in terms of yards. The 21-year old caught six passes for 75 yards while Wallace adde 67 yards on five catches.

The Dolphins will travel to Chicago next Sunday for a game against the Bears as they look to even up their record at 3-3.
