Here were some of the comments that stood out after the 42-17 loss against the Buffalo Bills, along with some perspective:
“We couldn’t do anything. We had to play well offensively. We didn’t do it.”
— Head Coach Adam Gase bemoaned a rough afternoon for the offense, which ended up committing four turnovers in the loss against the Bills. The Dolphins knew it was going to be a tough challenge against a very good Buffalo defense and they knew what they couldn’t do was commit turnovers.
“It’s been up and down. We’ve had some highs and some lows. We just weren’t consistent enough throughout the season.”
— Quarterback Ryan Tannehill offered a quick analysis of the regular season as a whole, while also pointing out it’s difficult to do a good assessment right after the final game. As Tannehill pointed out, the Dolphins had their moments in 2018 but couldn’t produce the kind of consistency they were looking to attain.
“I thought we had a good week of preparation, guys were competing, and I felt like we had a chance to come out here and give ourselves an opportunity to win the game but we didn’t do that.”
— Wide receiver Kenny Stills said the Dolphins were ready to play a good game against the Bills on Sunday but just didn’t execute well enough to leave Buffalo with a victory.
