Dolphins blown out in Baltimore, snapping 6-game winning streak
Early deficit dooms Dolphins in 38-6 loss
BALTIMORE – The Miami Dolphins saw Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens take flight for an early lead Sunday and the Fins never recovered as they had their 6-game winning streak snapped 38-6.
Flacco finished with four touchdown passes and 381 passing yards.
Conversely, Fins quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw only one touchdown and was intercepted three times.
The Ravens had a 24-0 lead going into the locker room after putting together a dominant first half.
Flacco threw a three-yard touchdown to running back Terrance West on Baltimore's first drive of the game for a seven-nothing lead.
And then Flacco threw two more first-half touchdowns, both of them to tight end Dennis Pitta, as the Ravens took a commanding 21-0 lead.
Kicker Justin Tucker capped off the first half scoring by hitting a 55-yard field goal at the end of the second quarter.
The Dolphins finally found the end zone early in the fourth quarter, but only after the Pitta fumbled and Miami recovered.
Tannehill cashed in with an eight-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker, but the Fins failed on the two-point conversion and trailed 24-6.
Flacco then answered with his fourth touchdown of the contest, a 53-yard connection with Breshad Perriman that pushed the Baltimore lead to 31-6.
Up next, the Dolphins return home to host the Arizona Cardinals.
