The Miami Dolphins might not be openly tanking, but from the perspective of fans and the media, it's clear the team is looking ahead to the 2020 National Football League draft.

"When you don't play well against a good team and you don't execute, that's what happens", Flores said.

The Dolphins' season has quickly gone off the rails, as one might expect in the aftermath of giving up almost 60 points at home. Any Dolphins players who saw the bloodbath on Sunday and immediately wanted to pull the plug on their time in Miami likely had their minds made up that this year was going to be awful.

It's the second straight year a game ended in a tie in the first week after the Browns and Steelers did the same thing last year. The Lions will return home to take on the Los Angeles Chargers (1-0), who just beat the Andrew Luck-less Colts, 30-24.

The report comes from ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, who explained the situation during NBC's "Football Night in America". With the franchise now in between quarterbacks, playing both journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick and recently acquired second-year starter Josh Rosen, the Dolphins clearly wouldn't mind landing first overall pick in the 2020 draft and the right to draft Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa. If they do, we're guessing it will be a case of "take a number" because the line to get out will be long.

While Josh Rosen didn't make a particularly convincing argument for the starting job Sunday when he made his regular-season debut for Miami, the circumstance he was thrust into was pretty harsh.

It's on to New England for Brian Flores and the Miami Dolphins.

Whether the Miami Dolphins lost their season opener by 49 points because they had a bad week, or because the front office is resigned to losing as part of a rebuilding phase, multiple players reportedly want out - now.
