DAVIE, Fla. – It is on to Cincinnati for the Miami Dolphins.
The Dolphins returned to the practice field Wednesday in Davie, looking to move past the team's 38-7 loss to the New England Patriots.
"You never want to lose," Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "Obviously, it hurts, but when you have a tough loss like that, it does makes you as a team come back in and really take a hard look at what happened and the reality of the situation. ... You do get some things out of losing a game. Obviously, you'd rather learn those lessons after a win."
Tannehill said the Patriots loss has not lingered in the locker room.
"I felt that way from our first meeting today," he said. "It was good energy. Guys turn the page. On Monday, you come in and everyone feels the weight of the loss. ... By Wednesday morning, we're on to the next one."
The Dolphins (3-1) remain in sole possession of first place in the AFC East. They'll take on the Bengals (3-1) at 1 p.m. Sunday in Cincinnati.
