MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins are OK with perfect seasons coming to an end, but going from unbeaten to one game over .500 reflects concerns. Playing after a short week of rest, the Dolphins dropped their second straight contest Sunday, 26-23 to the Baltimore Ravens. Miami's offense struggled from the outset but came alive during the end of the second quarter to take a 13-6 lead during halftime. The game plan slowly came apart during the second half. Ryan Tannehill, who started 14 for 21, completed just seven passes in the final 30 minutes. The Dolphins defense, despite a pick-six, surrendered 17 points in a span of just less than 15 minutes.

Don't let anyone fool you. The Dolphins do not have a running game to set up the pass. They use the pass to set up the pass. Mi...
