The Bengals continue to make the Dolphins look like Super Bowl contenders. Facing a Steeler team decimated by injuries, suspensions, and the benching of their QB, the Bungles still found a way to blow a game in which they led.
Some rookie, unknown, undrafted free-agent bum came into the game and tossed an 79-yard TD on his first pass, and the Steelers had it won from there.
Adding insult to injury, Minkah Fitzpatrick further proved how wrong Brian Flores was by picking up his 8th takeaway this season. Minkah by himself has almost as many takeaways as the entire Dolphin team. He’s scored more points–a defensive safety mind you–than most of our offensive players. This just in: He’s that good. But Adam Gase and Brian Flores didn’t notice. Flores especially, who knows that Reshad Jones is fully healthy and young and able to lead the Dolphins’ D for years to come. Reshad is a much better player to overpay and hang onto. When you need a healthy young starting safety for 2019 and beyond, Flores made the call and chose Reshad Jones.
