The Miami Dolphins did something darn near impossible on their second offensive possession Saturday night.

They gained 22 yards. Yet somehow, still went three-and-out.

Even the most rudimentary mathematician knows something is wrong with this formula. The additional variable: Miami’s inability to get out of its way.

Penalties have replaced turnovers as the offense’s peskiest drive-killer as the preseason has progressed. In Saturday’s loss to the Texans, the Dolphins were flagged six times for 46 yards — not great, but not terrible.
