The Miami Dolphins took a nice step forward last week with their second straight road victory. The Dolphins kept pace with the Patriots in what has been an interesting AFC East over the first 2 weeks. There are no teams under .500 at this point in the season. The AFC West and NFC West are the only other divisions in which this is the case. By contrast, the AFC North and NFC East do not have a team over .500. It’s early, but these early games can lead to big consequences later this season when tie breakers are in play.
One thing that I took away from the Thursday night game between the Jets and the Pats is that the Pats might not be the offensive juggernaut that they have been in recent years. Tom Brady’s receivers are just not reliable at this point. Combine that, with the fact that the Dolphins just beat the Colts on the road and Dolphins fans have a reason to be excited. The next 3 games against the Falcons, Saints, and Ravens will tell us a LOT about this Dolphins team.
