Nothing's been going right for the Miami Dolphins as they "Tank for Tua" in 2019. After what Dolphins rookie Christian Wilkins did today, you can argue that the players are just plain fed up.

In the first quarter of Miami's game against the Buffalo Bills, Wilkins got himself immediately ejected. The reason? He threw a blatant punch at a Bills offensive lineman.

That's a big no-no, and the referees quickly made him pay for it.

The Dolphins selected Wilkins No. 13 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft after a standout career at Clemson.

A two-time national champion, Wilkins contributed 16 sacks and a whopping 40.5 tackles for loss under Dabo Swinney's tutelage.

But the Miami Dolphins haven't been anything close to a good team in Wilkins' rookie season. They're currently winless and putting up some of the worst numbers on offense and defense in NFL history.

The frustration must have boiled over for Wilkins today. We'll see if any of his teammates start to take after him.
