Beneath all the joy and optimism of the Dolphins’ six-game winning streak and current position as a wild card team, one truth remains: the Dolphins must make the playoffs to have a successful season.

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 06:44:00 PST

Now it comes down to December football, perhaps the two scariest words in recent Miami Dolphins history. Since 2012, the Dolphins are 9-11 in December, including 3-5 on the road.

Dolphins center Mike Pouncey sent to see specialist about hip

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 14:42:00 PST

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 05:23:00 PST

Last year Dolphins rookie undrafted linebackers Neville Hewitt, Zach Vigil and Mike Hull were considered underdogs and longshots. But they all found a way to stick around. And now, against the odds, they’re still around, contributing on special teams and from scrimmage.

As it turns out, climbing...

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 05:34:00 PST

If the Dolphins (6-4)...

Dolphins' run defense is actually stopping the run

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 07:03:00 PST

Here’s something to think about: In the last six quarters the Dolphins run defense, which has been mired near the bottom of the NFL all season, has allowed just 100 yards on 33 carries.

That’s an encouraging statistic, and a head-turning improvement.

This, mind you, is the same Dolphins run defense...

Dolphins seem to be developing playmakers, the most valuable players in the NFL

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 14:25:00 PST

Here’s one of the best harbingers for the Dolphins during this four-game winning streak: they’re developing playmakers.
