Simply Heartbreaking

The Miami Dolphins threw away their playoff shots with a very poor performance that saw the team scrap back in the 4th quarter to come back from a 24-6 deficit only to throw an INT in overtime and add a 15 yard personal foul on top of it to give the Titans a 3 point win.  For the Phins, there is no solace to be taken from the game.  The win puts Jacksonville back in the hunt, puts Baltimore in total control, and allowed the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans enough hope to get back in.

The Phins had this game and couldn’t put them away.  Taking the opening kick-off of OT, Ted Ginn walked to 20 and then fell down when a finger tripped him.  The Dolphins managed to move the ball well for the last 15 minutes but on a 3rd and 4, Henne caved to the pocket pressure and overshot Davone Bess for the first and it was picked off at the 40.

For Henne, his 4th quarter comeback and his personal best 349 yards was nothing compared to giving up the INT in the extra period.  The Dolphins can do nothing more right now than sit back and pray for a ton of miracles.  That most likely won’t happen.
