Post Lack of offensive production in fourth quarter costing Miami

By Barry Jackson

When Ryan Tannehill navigated the Dolphins on a game-winning 13-play, 75-yard drive late in the fourth quarter of the home opener against Atlanta, it not only pushed Miami’s record to 3-0 but lifted hopes about how this augmented offense could perform under pressure.

As it turns out, that drive seems to have been an anomaly.

Look closely at what this offense has done in the fourth quarter the past two months — or more specifically, what it has not done — and it’s clear something is terribly wrong.

The Dolphins have had the ball for 23 offensive possessions in the fourth quarter of the past seven games. They haven’t scored a touchdown on any of them and have as many missed field goals during those possessions (three) as successful ones (three). ...

The Dolphins have scored only 40 points in the fourth quarter — a pace that leaves them in danger of setting the club record in that category ...

• Not running the ball enough. ...

In the past seven games, Tannehill has completed only 48 percent of his fourth-quarter passes (37 for 76) for 430 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions (two on long heaves to end the game). ...

This season, he’s 33rd in fourth-quarter passer rating, at 61.7, with two touchdowns and five interceptions. ...

the Dolphins are the only team in the league that has not scored at least 28 points in any game.

It is bad coaching. Look at second half scoring in the losses. We get our butt handed to us by good teams with competent coaching. They make 2nd half adjustments that kick the Phin's butt on both sides of the ball.

Hard to adjust when you don't have the players to adjust with and a QB missing key opportunities. That being said, the coaching staff still makes bonehead calls at times.

Mediocrity.

"Lack of offensive production"? Heck, there is no production in the 4th quarter.

Did we even score in the 2nd half?
