The Miami Dolphins have lost 11 of their last 12 home games, including a Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans, and LB Jason Taylor admitted that some of the players are starting to lose confidence.

That's kind of the product of losing sometimes, you start to question, second-guess a little bit, question what you're doing as a team. And until you win, those things will linger out there a little bit."
