In our early wins last year we were getting timely turnovers. They've been very rare this year. Right now we are expecting Fitzpatrick to not throw an INT (yeah, right) and our experiencedin secondary to get those interceptions without a significant pass rush. It's going to be tough this year to do that.

But what’s missing? What is keeping the Dolphins from even one misery quenching win?
“Any time you lose, there is something that is missing in that particular game,” Flores said. “Last week we turned the ball over, the week before it was the same thing — we turned it over in a critical situation. I’d say in this league, not just for us but for every team, turnovers are the dif ference between winning and losing a lot of games. We need to get that fixed. At the same time, I want this team to be aggressive, and be aggressive to go and win games as well. That’s what was missing last week and previous weeks.”
That’s fair. But the Dolphins need more than that. They need a player to deliver some heroics. Miami lacks productive playmakers because the ones on the roster haven’t delivered a big play in a key moment. That matters.
“We need two or three more plays that have to be made,” Flores said. “I don’t know where they will come from. Maybe it’s — we missed a block on a punt return in Buffalo that we may spring one. Nobody knows that, but that’s a big play in the game. There are small plays like that, I guess the masses don’t know or they don’t see those plays. If you make one of those, the outcome is different. I think the big ones is the turnovers; but there are other plays in the game (where) we could actually overcome some of the turnovers (and) we’re not making (them).”
