But a pair of missed field goals from Dan Carpenter and an untimely injury to Reggie Bush prevented the Dolphins from capitalizing on Gang Green's mistakes.
That wasn't all that went wrong, though.
The Dolphins' secondary couldn't stop Santonio Holmes, Ryan Tannehill threw a momentum-swinging pick-six and more than 50 percent of his completions went to Davone Bess and Anthony Fasano.
Miami's offense is getting great production from some, (Reggie Bush, Davone Bess, the offensive line) but very minimal production from everybody else.
This is a heartbreaking loss that could send the Dolphins down a dark path. Now, Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill face their first true test of adversity.
