Contemplating the agony of the Miami Dolphins‘ lat

MIAMI (AP) — est defeat Jason Sanders Jersey , coach Adam Gase drew on his experience, wishing he had less of it.“You always debate — are you better off getting blown out, or losing in a heartbreaker,” Gase said.His conclusion?Article continues below ...“No matter which way you do it, it just hurts the same,” he said.The Dolphins (7-7) have lost both ways too much this year. Ditto Jacksonville (4-10), Miami’s opponent Sunday.Here are things to know about two teams afflicted with the holidays blahs:ALSO-RAN STATUSA 41-17 loss at Minnesota last week pushed Miami to the verge of elimination from the AFC playoff race, and dropped Gase’s three-year record in games decided by more than one score to 3-18.That’s a lot of lopsided losses, including three this year. The 2018 Dolphins also squandered fourth-quarter double-digit leads in two defeats.That’s why they’re ninth in the AFC race for six playoff berths. They’ll likely be postseason spectators for the 15th time in the past 17 seasons.“It is out of our hands,” quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. “We do not have any control in this situation. We are going to need a lot of help.”The Jaguars are beyond help. They’ve lost nine of their past 10 games and seem to be getting worse, scoring a total of 28 points in the three weeks since Cody Kessler replaced Blake Bortles at quarterback.“What is on the field is my responsibility Raekwon McMillan Jersey ,” said coach Doug Marrone, who is 15-17 with the Jaguars. “I have done a poor job of communicating, of keeping everyone on track, of keeping everyone consistent. That falls solely on me.”GROUNDED JAGSJacksonville is one of two NFL teams (along with Philadelphia) that hasn’t had a 100-yard rusher this season. Leonard Fournette gained 95 yards on the ground in consecutive games last month, but hasn’t topped 50 yards rushing in the three weeks since .“Obviously it’s shocking,” said Marrone, whose offensive identity is to run the ball and take advantage of play-action passes.The Jaguars will try to end the skid against Miami, which ranks 31st in the league against the run.ROOKIE’S BREAKOUTNFL active rushing leader Frank Gore will miss the final two games because of a sprained foot, which likely will mean more snaps for Dolphins rookie Kalen Ballage.The fourth-round draft pick from Arizona State rushed for a career-high 123 yards last week, including 75 for his first career touchdown.Ballage wasn’t keen to discuss his performance at Minnesota.“Not to be rude or anything,” he said Laremy Tunsil Jersey , “but we lost.”HOMECOMING OF SORTSFor Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell, a two-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection at the University of Miami, this trip has more meaning than most.“It’s fun to compete in the old stomping grounds,” Campbell said. “I found a lot of success in that city in college.”Campbell had hoped to face Gore, one of his college teammates, and still plans on getting Gore’s jersey — but not his Dolphins No. 21. Campbell, who spent the first nine years of his career in Arizona, plans on asking Gore for a San Francisco 49ers jersey since they had so many “great battles” in the NFC West.Gore spent 10 years in San Francisco.HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGEThe Dolphins have been awful on the road, but only one AFC team has a better home record than their 6-1 mark.Tannehill has won nine consecutive home starts. He has 17 touchdown passes and a 129.4 rating in his past six home games.“It’s an honor to get to go out and step foot on that field every time we get to play at home,” Tannehill said. “We want to put on a good show for our fans.”Jacksonville is 1-5 on the road, including losses of 40-7 at Dallas and 30-9 at Tennessee. Football is back. Kind of. Sort of. Not really.The Denver Broncos report today for physicals and Myles Gaskin Miami Dolphins Jerseys , later in the day, an initial meeting with new head coach Vic Fangio. As participants in the annual Hall of Fame game, the Broncos (along with the Falcons) are eligible to start early.Starting late for Denver may be rookie quarterback Drew Lock. The second-round pick is unsigned; according to Mike Klis of 9News.com, Lock is holding out for a quarterback premium.Lock is represented by CAA, which isn’t bashful about driving a hard bargain for rookie draft picks.There’s no “quarterback premium” in the labor deal or the rules that otherwise determine the rookie wage scale. But that doesn’t stop Lock’s agents from trying to get one — and it doesn’t stop the Broncos from paying one, if they want to have Lock in the fold from Day One, hopeful that he’ll be ready to play if/when he’s needed.
