What it boils down to is the Dolphins offense has got to stop beating themselves. Most games are close, and a holding penalty, a missed blocking assignment, etc leads to a field goal or nothing. It could change the momentum of a game. We have two weeks to clean these things up.

About the third down failures: They’re more appropriately failures on earlier downs.

“We’re third-and-13, third-and-25, third-and-14. It’s just unmanageable,” Gase said on Sunday. “It comes from second down, penalty, negative play. Those are where we really have to eliminate our issues. No negative plays on first and second down gives us a chance to see third-and-6 or less, which gives us a high percentage of converting.

“We had an opportunity on third-and-six, we made a mistake, and it’s a critical one because it affects everybody else. That’s what we need to get cleaned up. We have to be on it as far as not making the mistakes that we can control. These are things that we’re hurting ourselves. Our guys have to understand this week that that has to be our focus.

“If we want to be better on third down, we have to clean up first and second down, and then when we get to third and manageable, we have to convert. Everybody needs to do the right thing.”

Gesicki could be a real help here, but he wasn't targeted in our quick pass offense. I believe Tannehill went for his first option on most plays.

Stat of the night: Dolphins were 2-of-12 on third-down conversions. They were 2-of-12 against Tampa Bay. Even in preseason, this is a concern and something to work on.
