Dolphins' winning streak ends in Baltimore

Posted at 4:31 PM, Dec 04, 2016

The Miami Dolphins had their six-game winning streak snapped with a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Miami entered the game with a tough challenge and the first half was a disaster for the team. The Dolphins trailed 24-0 at the half after struggling both offensively and defensively. Miami looked more like the club that started the year 1-4, rather than the team that rolled off six straight wins.

Despite the loss, the Dolphins sit at 7-5 on the season and remain in playoff contention. Miami will need to refocus and find the win column once again next week in order to avoid a precarious position. The Dolphins are unable to afford many losses in the final stretch of the season due to their sluggish start.

Ryan Tannehill ended up 29-40 on his pass attempts for 226 yards. Tannehill found the end zone during the fourth quarter, but was also picked off three times during the game. This game marked the first time that Tannehill had thrown multiple interceptions in a game since early October. After going four straight weeks without a pick, the quarterback now has four in three games.

The story for Miami was not much better on the ground, with Jay Ajayi having one of his quietest games in quite some time. Ajayi ended up rushing for only 61 yards and the team tallied 62.

The Dolphins will host the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
