In a battle of two teams who are have been struggling and moving backwards, the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins were both looking for something to build from. This of course was the return of Vance Joseph who had served as Miami’s defensive coordinator before being named head coach of the Denver Broncos. Something was going to have to give in this game.
The Dolphins certainly came in with what seemed to be a chip on their shoulder. The Broncos offense came out the gates asleep as Trevor Siemian would fumble on the 7 yard line, ball would be knocked out of the back of the end zone and it’s 2-0 Miami.
Denver would take a 3-2 second quarter lead, but it wouldn’t last too long as next possession, Jay Cutler would find Julian Thomas from 9 yards out to take the 9-3 lead.
Then next possession for the Broncos, yet again the QB situation haunts them where Siemian would throw a pick six to Xavien Howard.
The Dolphins would take a 16-3 lead into halftime.
In the third quarter the Dolphins would tack on another field goal to take the 19-3 lead. But the Dolphins have a funny about them as Jay Cutler threw a pick six to Justin Simmons and all of a sudden the Broncos are back in this game. They failed in the two point conversion and would trail 19-9.
The Dolphins would respond however as Kenyon Drake would score from 42 yards out to give the Dolphins a 26-9 lead. Miami would pretty much seal the deal after Jay Cutler finds Kenny Stills for 23 yards and the Dolphins would pull ahead 33-9. They would take a 35-9 lead after forcing a safety from a Broncos punt. That would be the final score.
The Dolphins defense certainly responded with a stellar effort against the Broncos picking off Trevor Siemian three times. This is the type of play the Dolphins fans expected from this team all season as they move to 5-7 on the season, and still somewhat in the playoff hunt.
