Bad run defense dooms Dolphins in loss to Detroit

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins' run defense is stuck in reverse, perhaps taking the season with it.

Poor tackling, botched assignments and a manhandling up front doomed the Dolphins on Sunday, when the Detroit Lions ran for 248 yards to win 32-21.

It was Detroit's biggest total in 21 years, and the second bad game in a row for the Dolphins' run defense. They allowed 164 yards rushing a week earlier but still somehow managed to beat the Chicago Bears in overtime.
