Victory and defeat have been clear cut for the Miami Dolphins.
They went 2-0 on the road in their first two games. They went 0-2 at home in their past two games.
Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano noted the difference has little to do with the venue.
When the Dolphins can run, they win. When they have to throw, they lose.
Sparano, speaking at a news conference Thursday, made comments that seemed to re-emphasize his team's commitment to a ground attack despite big-armed quarterback Chad Henne and star receiver Brandon Marshall.
"The truth is, in my opinion, we've had two football games that we've been in that we've had to deviate from the norm," Sparano said, "and in both those games we lost."
