Miami Dolphins 2010 Season Review
The Miami Dolphins had an up and down 2010 NFL season. A season that started with promise, ended with a disappointing 7-9 record. Read on for Miami Dolphins 2010 Highlights, Dolphins 2010 Lowlights, 2010 Dolphin game reviews and Miami Dolphins Ticket news.
The Miami Dolphins started off the season with two victories, against the Buffalo Bills and the Minnesota Vikings, both on the road. Both were close games and the Miami Dolphins found a way to win. However, the hot start would not last long as the New York Jets and New England Patriots defeated the Miami Dolphins at home in consecutive weeks.
The Miami Dolphins rebounded to defeat the Green Bay Packers in overtime 23-20 in week five. However, the momentum wouldn’t last long as they lost the next week to the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 23-22 contest.
From week six to week fifteen, the NFL Miami Dolphins traded a victory for a loss. They had 8 straight weeks of swapping a win with a loss. They weren’t able to gather momentum from this. In week sixteen, the Miami Dolphins broke the streak and lost to the Detroit Lions 34-27. The loss left them at 7-8 and wondering if they could have turned some of those close losses into wins, like a 13-10 loss to Cleveland, a 17-14 loss to Buffalo, and the Pittsburgh loss.
The Miami Dolphins have had several highlights in the 2010 season. Through the first 7 road games in the season, they have a record of 6-1, with their only loss to a tough Baltimore Ravens team. They have beaten Buffalo, Minnesota, Green Bay, Cincinnati, Oakland, and the New York Jets all at their respective stadiums.
The Miami Dolphins have also showed they have a solid defense. It ranks as the #7 against the pass and #6 against the rush in all of the NFL. Linebacker Cameron Wake is first in the NFL in sacks with 14. The defense is ranked 5th in the NFL in fewest yards surrendered. They are 9th in fewest points allowed.
Also, Brandon Marshall is near the 1,000 yard receiving mark and has given the Miami Dolphins a go-to receiver. He is the first Miami Dolphin in quite some time that is a legitimate deep threat and demands double coverage.
With several highlights in the 2010 season, comes several lowlights with the Miami Dolphins. The most important lowlight was the quarterback play. Chad Henne was expected to raise his play and become the starter that everyone in Miami envisioned him. Unfortunately, Henne struggled and was even pulled in the season. He regain his starting job but he never looked comfortable and did not make the plays necessary to get the Miami Dolphins back into the playoffs. He has thrown 15 touchdowns to 18 interceptions.
Another lowlight of the season was the play of the running backs, Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Through 15 games, Brown has 5 rushing touchdowns while Williams has 2 rushing touchdowns. Many analysts viewed this running back tandem as one of the strongest in the league but that wasn’t the case in the 2010 season. They only combined for 4 runs over 20+ yards.
Another lowlight of the season was the home record. The Miami Dolphins finished their home record at 1-7, which needs to improve next season. They also had a 27 point loss at home to the New England Patriots that has to be considered one of the lowlights of the 2010 NFL season.
