Latest Dolphins loss shows Flores hasn't fixed defense yet

MIAMI (AP) When the Miami Dolphins fell behind in their home opener, some fans in the small crowd began to chant "Tua, Tua," lobbying for the team's top draft pick to replace veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Quarterback wasn't the Dolphins' problem Sunday, however. Defense was. Again. Still.

Miami was shredded for 524 yards by Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills and lost, 31-28. The performance signaled - screamed, actually - that a retooled defense with six new starters hasn't been fixed by coach Brian Flores.
