The Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles came into Sunday's game at 4-8. For Miami this could've been expected, but for the Eagles this was a disappointment. 

However after Sunday's performance, one has to think where this "dream team" of Philly has been all year as the Eagles defeated the Dolphins by 16 points, and folks, it wasn't even that close. 

Miami started off the afternoon well, with a blocked punt by Jimmy Wilson turned into a 16 yard Matt Moore to Brandon Marshall touchdown. 

But it was all downhill from there, the downward spiral started when Tony Sparano showed why his job has been in jeopardy when he sent Dan Carpenter in for a 55 yard field goal when the Dolphins not only lead 7-0 and was also ahead in the field position game. 

Carpenter missed the field goal, kicked in less than ideal conditions with a wet field and the humid South Florida air, and the Eagles took advantage from there scoring 24 unanswered points, including two touchdowns from LeSean McCoy. 

For Miami their ninth loss of the year ensures that for the third consecutive year and for the sixth year in the last eight they will have a losing season, they fall to 4-9. 

Meanwhile the Philadelphia Eagles' faint playoff hopes are still alive as they move to 5-8. If the Eagles win out, along with the Cowboys going 1-3 and the Giants going 2-2, then the Eagles will win the NFC East despite the tumultuous season. 

Here's a look at how the Eagles became victorious this afternoon over the Miami Dolphins. 

Final Score: Philadelphia 26, Miami 10.
