TOP 10 WAYS DOLPHINS' TUA TAGOVAILOA IS UNLUCKIEST MAN ON EARTH. NEW COLUMN: When one Googles the phrase, “life is not fair,” a picture of Tua Tagovailoa should appear. His given first name is Tuanigamanuolepola. It must be Samoan for “cursed and luckless.” As his Miami Dolphins languish at 1-6 after six consecutive losses and reports swirl that the team already is shopping for his replacement, here are the 10 ways Tagovailoa is the unluckiest man on Earth. Or at least in the NFL. The collective weight of them is the boulder he drags, but we’ll rank, because people like a list. (Love the David Santiago photo here, by the way). For our full latest column including the Top 10 list, visit As Dolphins' Dysfunction Surrounds Him, 10 Ways Tua Is The Unlcukiest Man On Earth.

NFL WEEK 7 RESULTS:
(*) OUR PICKS: AWFUL ... AND REALLY GOOD: The awful: A 6-7 mark overall, sub-.500 straight-up an historical rarity for us. The really good: 8-4-1 against the spread. On four outright misses we correctly had the 'dogs covering: Dolphins, Titans, Colts and Seahawks. (The push/tie was Browns winning by 3).
(*) GREG'S LOBOS: ANOTHER WIN ... BUT BARELY: Lobos won 134-133 over my wife (uh oh) to make us 5-2 and tied for first place at the midpoint of the PFPI Fantasy regular season, our 10-team friends 'n family league. Got 36 from golden rookie Ja'Marr Chase, 31 from Mike Evans and 22 from Lamar Jackson. Also got lucky: Wife had Alvin Kamara Monday night, but his big 34 fell a couple shy of what she needed.
(*) HERALD NFL QB RANKINGS: CARR WINS, BRADY ON TOP, TUA STILL RISIING: Raiders' Derek Carr wins Week 7 honors, Bucs' Tom Brady holds onto No.1 overall, and Fins' Tua Tagovailoa jumps four more spots in the Herald's updated rankings. Details and the latest Top 20: NFL Week 7 QB Rankings.
