Dolphins' offense hits new low in second half

If you blinked, the Jets were back on the field.

A win is a win is a win.

We said "win" three times because these days, the Dolphins offense only gets three plays.

The bottoming out of the Adam Gase offensive era continued Sunday, as Miami somehow won 13-6 while gaining only 43 net yards in the second half against the Jets.

And it's the way it happened that was remarkable.

Miami had six plays on its first drive of the second half.

Then, on its next four drives, it went three-and-out.

Yes, all four.

It started with a sack of Brock Osweiler on 3rd-and-9. Punt.

Then an incomplete pass from Osweiler to Mike Gesicki on 3rd-and-5. Punt.

Then, with the Dolphins needing to kill some clock after a Jets' field goal, Frank Gore was stuffed for no gain on 3rd-and-1.

And, finally, at the two-minute warning, a 2-yard completion from Osweiler to Danny Amendola on 3rd-and-11.

Miami's only offense on the day was an interception for a touchdown by rookie linebacker Jerome Baker.

But is a win is a win is a win. That's nine letters on three words. Typical for the Dolphins, not enough for a first down.
