20. Miami Dolphins (20)
Yes, this was a frustrating loss for the Miami Dolphins against the Oakland Raiders when looking at everything this team has been dealing with this week, especially the surprising news of the Jay Ajayi trade. However, there is one positive to takeaway from Sunday’s loss to the Raiders, which is it was great to see a healthy Jay Cutler under center.
After missing the last few games due to fractured ribs, Cutler was able to make an impact in his return for Miami by tossing three touchdown passes against Oakland while nearly rallying the team for a last-minute win. When looking at how terrible Matt Moore looked last week against the Baltimore Ravens, it was clear on Sunday night just how much the Dolphins had missed Cutler under center, even if the offense had struggled at times earlier in the year.
With that being said, it’s now up to Cutler to do whatever it takes to make sure this offense builds off this loss to begin playing on a consistent level each week. Otherwise, Miami will be watching the postseason from home this year, and all of that money spent on Cutler to come out of retirement will seem like a complete waste.
