Mike McDaniel Backs Dolphins To Bounce Back From ‘Humbling’ Loss

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel says defeats like the one they experienced against the Tennessee Titans can be ‘galvanizing’.

The Miami Dolphins led 27-13 with 5 minutes left of the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. Two quick touchdowns later and they were 28-27 losers on the night.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had an off night with 23-of-33 passing for 240 yards. As well as that, it was his first game of the season without a touchdown pass. 

WR Tyreek Hill went off injured in the first quarter and did not return until the third.

“We all get to share the blame,” Mike McDaniel said.

“I think what they wanted game plan-wise was to put a shell over our team, forcing us to run the ball, forcing us to beat them that way,” said Tagovailoa. 

“But when you have someone like Tyreek go down, it does make it tough, but when you also have a couple of your key O-linemen go down, as well, it does hurt the guys up front and sort of the way we operate.”

“Collectively I think the guys will rise to the occasion,” said Mike McDaniel. “I think you have to because it’s a humbling game, and you think that you’re a good football team, but then each and every week you have to prove that on the field and you can’t take anything for granted.”

“Right now it feels terrible, but that’s everything that we’ll be trying to do moving forward because these types of losses can be very galvanizing, but it takes literally every person in the locker room and coaching staff, and you have to – as long as guys aren’t pointing fingers, which I feel like there’s a lot of people looking internally, you have that chance, and that’s what we’ll be spending our time doing.”
