The calendar still says November, but the playoffs start today for the Miami Dolphins. They are 5-5 overall, but just 3-4 in the conference and 1-2 in the AFC East. If the Phins hope to make the playoffs, they must put together a 5-1 finish and it must start by winning today.
The Dolphins have to win, first and foremost, BUT some help on the scoreboard would help the Dolphins chances. A Tampa Bay win over the Ravens and/or a Bills win against the Steelers would help ALOT. If either of those teams can pull off an upset, the wild card comes right back into play. There are other games that could also help the Phins, I’ll be rooting hard for the Seahawks, Texans, Chargers, and Giants. With a WIN and some help the Phins could be right back in the middle of the playoff discussion.
The Dolphins will be without all-world WR Brandon Marshall, but should be able to eek out a win against the Oakland Raiders. Dolphins win behind Chad Henne 23-17!
