    Four days earlier, Lamar Jackson had worked miracles. He’d rallied the Ravens from a two-touchdown deficit against the Minnesota Vikings, throwing for 266 yards, running for another 120 and leading a 10-play drive to clinch the game in overtime. Eight weeks into the 2021 season, the Ravens stood 6-2, and it was not hard to find analysts who believed their quarterback was the league’s Most Valuable Player. Jackson was back in his old South Florida stomping ground on a Thursday night, ready to add luster to his campaign as a national audience bore witness. The Miami Dolphins, 2-7 coming in and hardly a defensive terror, had radically different notions of how the evening would unfold. From the first series, they crowded the line of scrimmage with eight defenders. Whether they actually rushed six or seven or just teased the possibility, they were daring Jackson to react quickly and precisely enough to punish them. He could not. He took four sacks, threw an interception, converted on two of 14 third downs and did not lead the Ravens to a touchdown until...
    Tom Brady, considered the greatest quarterback in NFL history, has played 36 games against the Miami Dolphins, winning two-thirds of them. His 66.7 win percentage against Miami is stellar, but it pales compared with his 76.7% regular-season win percentage (207-63) against the rest of the NFL. The Dolphins have won 12 games against Brady, the most by any team against him. The Jets have the next-most wins against him with seven. The only two teams who own winning records against Brady are the New Orleans Saints (5-4) and Seattle Seahawks (2-1). While some reports appeared to soften regarding Brady’s retirement being imminent, the Dolphins won’t play the Buccaneers until 2023 at the earliest. Here are the Dolphins’ 12 wins against Brady, in order of his passer rating in each from best to worst, plus any wins against Miami where he had a passer rating below 70 (home team in ALL-CAPS): Dec. 9, 2018: DOLPHINS 34, Patriots 33, 112.4 passer rating The Miami Miracle. Brady did all that should have been needed, throwing for 358...
    “Next man up” is one of the oldest cliches in professional sports, a line that is often repeated over and over like a song’s chorus by every team. When personnel losses happen because of injuries, suspensions, or COVID-19 positive test results, which is the case for many NFL teams like the Miami Dolphins this past week, the next man in line is required to step up and fill in capably. Football, a sport whose collisions are often equivalent of a car crash, has the biggest rosters in sports. Therefore, the league must survive on players rising up the depth chart and holding down the line, or the linebacker unit, or the secondary, or the receiver room. This past week because of a recent outbreak of COVID-19, which has produced more than 100 positive tests and motivated the NFL to push back one game to Monday and two others to Tuesday, dozens of players will be put in “next-man-up” situations and asked to transform from a backup into a key contributor. “It’s the same old, same old....
    Joe Flacco will reportedly get the start this weekend against the Jets. According to Rich Cimini, the veteran quarterback is expected to get the starting nod against the Miami Dolphins. The Jets traded for Flacco after Zach Wilson got hurt. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Cimini reported that Wilson is “still not 100%,” which is why Flacco is getting the start. BREAKING: In a surprise, the Jets are planning to start Joe Flacco vs Miami, source tells ESPN. Zach Wilson still not 100%. Flacco’s experience likely a big factor in the decision, facing blitz-heavy D. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) November 17, 2021 It’s going to be fascinating to see what Flacco does on the field against the Dolphins and Tua. He did start multiple games in 2020 for the Jets before landing on the Eagles, but I think I speak for most fans when I say he’s far from a star. At this point, Flacco is several years removed from his best days of football. That’s just a fact. Jets trading...
    Tua Tagovailoa is back in the starting lineup for the Miami Dolphins. Tua has been dealing with a finger issue, and it’s limited his reps. He did come in against the Ravens last week and lead the team to a win. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Now, he’s back to starting.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Miami Dolphins (@miamidolphins) According to @flasportsbuzz, head coach Brian Flores informed the media Monday that Tua will start this week against the Jets. Tua will start at Jets, Flores said — Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) November 15, 2021 This is great news for fans of the Dolphins. They’re not playing for much at this point, but Miami needs Tua to get as many reps as possible. The Dolphins need to figure out whether or not he’s the man for them in the future. You can’t do that if he’s glued to the bench with an injury issue. TUA GETS THE TOUCHDOWN. (via @NFL)pic.twitter.com/m6x4fMsSh0 — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) November 12, 2021...
    The latest from Week 9 of the NFL (all times EST): ___ 11:55 a.m. Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold and running back Christian McCaffrey are both active for the game against the New England Patriots. Darnold has been cleared from the NFL’s concussion protocol, but is dealing with a shoulder injury. According to a Panthers team spokesman, coach Matt Rhule is waiting until after the warmup to determine whether or not Darnold or his backup P.J. Walker will start. McCaffrey is expected to start, but will likely see a reduced number of reps after missing the past five weeks with a hamstring injury, according to Rhule.

The Patriots (4-4) will be without wide receiver N’Keal Harry. ___ 11:10 a.m. A person with knowledge of the situation says the Miami Dolphins are planning to start Jacoby Brissett at quarterback against the Houston Texans because Tua Tagovailoa is still dealing with an injured finger on his throwing hand.

They’re 1-1 after getting obliterated by the Bills this past Sunday and they’re now going to be without their starting QB for at least one game. If you’re a fan of the Dolphins, you have to be very concerned right now. Jacoby Brissett isn’t a bad backup option, but he’s not a guy you can...
