The Miami Dolphins are off to an 0-5 start for the first time since 2011, and that was during the Tony Sparano era. The Dolphins lost by one point to a winless Washington Redskins team last Sunday, and the Dolphins had a chance to win the game when first-year head coach Brian Flores decided to go for the two-point conversion.
Unfortunately, the Dolphins missed the conversion and fell to 0-5. Josh Rosen started the game at quarterback and was 15/25 for 85 yards and two interceptions. Head coach Brian Flores decided to bench Rosen, and Ryan Fitzpatrick would come into the game and was 12/18 for 132 yards, and one touchdown pass.
The last time the Dolphins got off to this bad of a start was back in 2004, and that was during the Wannstedt era, and he re-signed midseason. The Dolphins also had a similar start in the 2007 season and finished that season with one win, but Cam Cameron's way of coaching caused the Dolphins troubles that season.
We also can't forget the 0-6 start in 2011, and that led to the firing of the late Tony Sparano. The Dolphins will travel to Western New York Sunday to play AFC East rival Buffalo, and the Bills are off to a really good start, but they are a beatable team.
The Dolphins have some winnable games in the 2019 season, but when do they get their first win? I thought the Redskins game was going to be their first win, but that game was a loss, but you have a Monday Night Football game at Pittsburgh that is winnable. The Jets will come to South Florida on November 3rd, a trip to Cleveland on November 24th, and a trip to MetLife against the Jets on December 8th. All of those games are winnable.
The Dolphins will stay in Newark for another week against the Giants on December 15th, and with their uncertainty with the quarterback position between Daniel Jones and Eli Manning, I think that is a winnable game. The most winnable game on the schedule will be the home finale against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 22nd, and the Bengals are winless also.
The Dolphins will get their first win of the season soon, but will that be Sunday against Buffalo? I sure hope so because the Dolphins can't relive the 2007 season all over again.
