Buffalo’s 48-20 victory should be a wake-up call for the coaching staff and players on the field, and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa essentially said as much after the game with a promise.
“It’s tough when you lose and you lose like this, but we’re not going to blink,” Tagovailoa said. “We’re going to continue to do what we do. We’re going to go back in. We’re going to work on the things that need to be worked fixed and need to be corrected. I can promise you one thing, we’ll definitely be better from this.”
This type of effort, which included mistakes that came in the form of penalties and turnovers, is unacceptable. On top of that, the defense struggled to slow down Josh Allen and company, allowing them to move up and down the field at will.
If the Dolphins want to prove that they’re among the league’s top teams, a day like Sunday can’t happen.
