Pitiful. To me, it looked like he ran the wrong route as Matt thought he was going to turn outside rather than inside. The look on Matt's face said it all. Either Parker is a bust or he is poorly coached.

Anyway, the Dolphins were trailing 21-10 and had the football on the New England Patriots’ 15 yard line. Quarterback Matt Moore wanted to throw to DeVante Parker in the end zone. And Parker, who the Dolphins believe is their most gifted receiver, was in one-on-one coverage against Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
Moore underthrew the football. And Parker, seeing the underthrow, did absolutely nothing to stop his route, convert to a defensive back, and at least knock the ball down.
So on one play the Dolphins were betrayed by a quarterback, who after the game took responsibility for leaving a key pass “short.” And they were betrayed by their most promising wide receiver, because Parker took responsibility for his poor reaction.
Parker, meanwhile, disappeared on that fateful play when he should have been stepping up to save his quarterback. And in a game the Dolphins needed him to play big, he caught one pass for five yards.
