With another season stumbling toward (12th Aug 19 at 3:15am UTC)
MIAMI (AP) — the finish line Stephone Anthony Jersey , the Miami Dolphins can begin thinking about 2019, and that includes Frank Gore.The NFL’s leading active rusher is expected to miss the rest of the year with a sprained foot, a person familiar with the situation said Monday. The person confirmed Gore’s status to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t commented on the severity of his injury.Gore was hurt during Sunday’s 41-17 loss at Minnesota . He has played in 126 consecutive games and made 122 starts in a row, and both streaks are the longest by an NFL offensive skill player.Last week Gore, 35, said he was uncertain whether he wanted to play next year. That’s one of many offseason decisions looming for the Dolphins (7-7) now that they’ve been reduced to long-shot status in the playoff race.“We’re outside looking in,” coach Adam Gase acknowledged. It’s a familiar position for the Dolphins, who have played only two postseason games since 2001.Gase is 23-23 and likely to return for a fourth season. Less secure is executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum. A shake-up among Gase’s assistants is probable, with defensive coordinator Matt Burke most in jeopardy. A myriad of player personnel decisions will begin with whether to bring back quarterback Ryan Tannehill.But first there’s a schedule to play out — at home Sunday against Jacksonville , and at Buffalo the following week.“The difficult part right now is we can handle our business, but that’s doesn’t mean anything,” Gase said. “We’ve got other teams that can affect our season.”Eight AFC teams have a better record in the race for six playoff spots. That means the Dolphins would need a lot of help to reach the postseason — plus a sweep of their final two games, which seems unlikely in the wake of the latest flop.Minnesota manhandled Miami up front on both sides of the ball. Tannehill was sacked nine times http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/authentic-t.j.-mcdonald-jersey , tying the franchise record, and the run defense allowed 220 yards.The Dolphins fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter, closed within 21-17 early in the second half and did little right thereafter.“That’s been the sad story of our woes this year — not being able to finish,” running back Kenyan Drake said.It has been a team effort. The Dolphins rank 30th in the league in defense and 29th in offense, and they’ve been outgained by 100 yards per game — 1,402 total. The franchise record is 1,321 in 1967.Also in danger is the team record of 383 yards allowed per game set in 2016, Gase’s first season. Burke’s defense has given up 402 yards per game.Aside from chances to break negative records, the final two games will be little more than tryouts for next year. Among the players likely to get a long look will be fourth-round draft pick Kalen Ballage, one of the few bright spots at Minnesota with a season-high 123 yards rushing and his first career touchdown, which came on a 75-yard run.Gore’s injury means more snaps for the rookie from Arizona State.“I’m ready,” Ballage said. “Obviously you don’t want to lose somebody like a Hall of Fame running back. Frank can do everything. But I’ll just be ready to step into whatever role they need me to be in.” Jerome Baker danced, waved Womens Kenny Stills Jersey , waggled his index finger and clicked his heels. For a first-year linebacker, it was a surprisingly polished touchdown celebration.Baker bested fellow rookie Sam Darnold, scoring the game's only TD on a 25-yard interception return with 11 minutes left, and a resilient defense helped the Miami Dolphins beat the hapless New York Jets 13-6 on Sunday.Darnold threw four interceptions and took four sacks, and the Jets went 2 for 15 on third and fourth down.The hobbled Dolphins (5-4) endured another wave of injuries and the mysterious departure of safety Reshad Jones, who pulled himself out of the game. But their defense was much improved after three consecutive poor games ."We never panicked; we knew what our defense was capable of," Baker said. "When we are executing and do our job and play together, we're one of the best defenses out there."The quality of the opposition helped the defense dominate, however, allowing Miami to win with only seven first downs.Darnold tried to rally the sputtering Jets (3-6) from a 6-3 deficit, but following a punt the rookie took a high snap and made an ill-advised throw to tight end Eric Tomlinson. Baker stepped in front for his first career interception and scored untouched."I didn't throw it with confidence," Darnold said. "I just alligator-armed it — threw it a little bit short."Much of the game was a slog, but Baker provided a video highlight celebrating with his teammates."There is nothing like it Kiko Alonso Jersey ," he said, game ball cradled under his arm. "It is the sweetest feeling ever, especially getting in the end zone, seeing your brothers running toward you."T.J. McDonald and Walt Aikens made interceptions to end the Jets' final two possessions."The guys did a good job of complementary football," Dolphins coach Adam Gase said. "They played together. They did a good job of stopping the run and making it as one-dimensional as possible."Miami broke a two-game losing streak and won for only the second time in the past six games. Gase improved to 5-1 against the Jets, including two wins this year.The Jets lost their third in a row and have scored 33 points during the skid. They've dropped nine of their past 10 road games dating to 2017.Darnold went 21 for 39 for 229 yards and a passer rating of 31.8. He came into the game tied for the NFL lead with 10 interceptions , and the four picks were a new high."Two for sure he'd like to have back," coach Todd Bowles said. "Back to the drawing board."Cameron Wake and Akeem Spence had two sacks apiece for the Dolphins, who had allowed 102 points the previous three weeks."Everybody playing together, front to back side to side, and getting a win, that's about as rewarding as it is," Wake said.TO THE BENCHJones Matt Haack Jersey , whose tendency to freelance has been an issue, watched the second half from the sideline. Gase said he didn't know whether Jones was hurt."It sounds like he pulled himself out," Gase said. "I've just got to find out what happened there."Jones didn't talk to the media after the game.DOLPHINS SUBMiami totaled only 168 yards, but Brock Osweiler improved to 2-2 as a starter filling in for the injured Ryan Tannehill . Osweiler went 15 for 24 for 139 yards and took four sacks, but his unit committed no turnovers."It was just a good old-fashioned fight on the field, and it was fun," Osweiler said. "We won."INJURY REPORTDolphins: LT Laremy Tunsil (knee) left in the fourth quarter. ... RT Ja'Wuan James (knee) departed in the first half, but later returned. ... CB Bobby McCain was evaluated for a concussion. ... DE Robert Quinn limped off in the field in the closing minutes.Jets: C Spencer Long aggravated an injury to the middle finger of his right hand and had half a dozen off-target snaps before leaving the game. ... Backup LB Tarell Basham (knee) left the game in the second half.FULL WEEKENDThe field looked worn but was not an issue less than 24 hours after the Miami Hurricanes and Duke played on it in a downpour.NATIONAL ANTHEMDolphins receiver Kenny Stills kneeled during the anthem and Quinn stood with his right fist raised, as they have done before other games.UP NEXTDolphins: play at Green Bay for the first time since 2010 on Nov. 11.Jets: play host to Buffalo on Nov. 11. The teams also meet on Dec. 9.Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: ://Steve_Wine
