They hardly felt or looked like the best team in the AFC East after a 38-7 loss at New England . The drubbing left the Dolphins with a deceptive 3-1 record Trent Brown Color Rush Jersey , injuries issues and room for recrimination.“That’s why today is always the toughest,” said coach Adam Gase, who has dealt with the day-after blues before. “Everyone is brutally honest. You’re going to have conflict; you’re going to have some back and forth. Today is an emotional day.“It’s a bad feeling when you get drummed in a division rival’s stadium. It’s not something you like to experience, and you’re mad you can’t do anything about it now.”Instead, the Dolphins began looking ahead to another road game Sunday against Cincinnati (3-1) while wondering who will be available to play.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins place Albert Wilson on IR with hip injuryAdam Gase says cleaning up Dolphins’ run defense is matter of getting on same pagePotential season-ending hip injury to Albert Wilson as Dolphins looking for solutions at WRDolphins’ run defense cause for concern after giving up 248 rushing yards to DetroitDeVante Parker’s agent says Dolphins receiver should be playing, questions coach Adam GaseCenter Daniel Kilgore (torn left triceps) and cornerback Bobby McCain (knee) joined an already long injury list with serious ailments, and tackle Ja’Wuan James was also banged up.The rout will test the team’s culture, which Gase found wanting during a six-win season in 2017. There were signs of strife Sunday when defensive tackle Jordan Phillips had an angry outburst on the sideline after coming out of the game.Gase defended defensive line coach Kris Kocurek’s rotation pattern.“There’s a reason we’re subbing the way we’re subbing against that team,” Gase said. “It’s not a secret why we’re doing it. Whatever Kris wants the D-linemen to do, that’s what we’re doing.”The Dolphins have cause to be testy Duron Harmon Jersey , with their fast start now looking like a mirage. They’ve been outscored this season 90-82, and outgained by 435 yards.The offense ranks third-worst in the NFL, and the secondary’s a mess, with even top cornerback Xavien Howard getting burned Sunday for two touchdowns.Gase struggled to explain how his team could play so badly after winning its first three games. He said the opponents were more physical, which hadn’t happened previously, and that wasn’t the lone issue. One familiar problem was penalties 鈥?10 for 89 yards.“Nothing went right,” Gase said. “Nothing we did was good.”Receiver Albert Wilson offered an assessment that was candid but mystifying, given the high stakes against the division’s perennial powerhouse: “We didn’t have any energy going in.”Miami’s defensive front four looked especially listless, allowing Patriots rookie Sony Michel to run for 112 yards and his first career touchdown.“It was a lot of shooting yourself in the foot 鈥?misalignments, missed tackles Andre Tippett Jersey Black Friday , self-inflicted wounds,” defensive end Cameron Wake said. “And maybe some physicality as well.”Because the Patriots’ defensive line also dominated, the Dolphins couldn’t run the ball, and Ryan Tannehill had little time to throw. He was able to target Danny Amendola only three times and Jakeem Grant twice even though both “were open the whole game,” Gase said.Absent was the creative play-calling of earlier games that led to chunk yardage.“When you’re not getting first downs, you’re not moving the football, you’re not getting the defense on their heels a little bit, it’s tough to get those play calls in,” Tannehill said.This year’s offensive line was expected to be the best Tannehill has played behind, but three of the five starters are now hurt , with guard Josh Sitton earlier sidelined for the season.That leaves Tannehill in a precarious position, much like Miami’s lead in the AFC East. NEW YORK (AP) — And then there was one.After six weeks, the Los Angeles Rams are the NFL’s last unbeaten team following their 23-20 victory over the Denver Broncos.The Rams will look to stay unbeaten on Sunday when they face the San Francisco 49ers in the final game of a three-game road swing.And it’s little surprise that the Rams are the unanimous top team in the latest AP Pro32 poll for the fourth consecutive week. They received all 12 first-place votes and 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.“Todd Gurley has staked an early claim in this year’s MVP race,” Newsday said Bob Glauber. “With 208 rushing yards and two touchdowns, he kept the Rams unbeaten with a narrow road win at Denver.”The New England Patriots are inching their way back to the top. The Patriots moved two spots to No. 2 after their 43-40 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.“Death. Taxes. Patriots,” said Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.The Chiefs slipped a spot to No. 3 after their first loss of the season. The Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals in their second consecutive Sunday night matchup.The Bengals dropped three spots to No. 8 after their 28-21 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers, who have won two in a row, climbed three spots to No. 9 as they enter their bye week.The New Orleans Saints, coming off their bye week, fell a spot to No. 4. They return to action this week against the Baltimore Ravens.The Ravens jumped four spots to No. 6 after their 21-0 rout of the Tennessee Titans John Hannah Color Rush Jersey , in which they had a franchise-record 11 sacks.“The Ravens play serious defense, which is a rarity in the new-age NFL,” said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa, Florida.Another team making a big climb was the Los Angeles Chargers, who moved six spots to No. 5 after routing the Cleveland Browns 38-14. The Chargers face the Titans in London for a game at Wembley Stadium.The Minnesota Vikings moved up two spots to No. 7 after topping the Arizona Cardinals.The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles jumped five places to round out the top 10.“(Carson) Wentz getting stronger,” Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki said.
