      Miami's Postseason Hopes In Serious Doubt



      We have seen it before, December football in Miami, lackluster performances, heartbreak, disappointment, sound familiar? That time of the year has returned once again and the Miami Dolphins showed today things haven't changed much. After a quick start in the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens the Dolphins couldn't find a way to keep the motor running. The Ravens manhandled the Dolphins in a bruising 28-13 defeat.

      Before the home game in Miami today, the Dolphins had a firm grasp on reaching the post season but the loss today has all but crippled any chance of them advancing beyond December. They now face a daunting uphill battle of winning their final four games to have any realistic chance of making the playoffs. That task begins next Sunday against one of the best teams in the NFL right now, the New England Patriots.

      Dolphins Late Rally Keeps Playoff Hopes Alive



      Flashback to the Miami Dolphins 2013 season and it brings back memories of a disheartening end to a hopeful year. After two unacceptable losses to AFC east division rivals, the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets put an end to the Miami Dolphins playoff dreams. 2014 has been a different story, the Dolphins put an end to a long standing winless streak on Monday Night Football versus the New York Jets by rallying for a 16-13 victory.

      It wasn't the prettiest of wins the Dolphins have had this year but they showed resilience which they have lacked in past years against division foes. There was missed tackles, dropped catches, bad passes, poor kicking and questionable strategy but the team stayed focused in the end.

      The Dolphins have shown progress all year and late season wins over the Bills and Jets was exactly what this team needed to remedy the past failures that have haunted this team for many years. Miami now sits at 3-1 in the division and 6-3 overall in the AFC. The opportunity is there for the taking. Miami needs to continue overcoming obstacles as they have a formidable foe at home next Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens, a team that has beaten the Dolphins four times in a row to date. Change is a good thing this year and the Dolphins season depends on it.

      Defense Can't Withstand Mile High Offense




      In what was supposed to be a showcase of defensive power houses, the game between the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos turned into a offensive heavyweight match. The Broncos were able to withstand the battle and defeat the Dolphins 39-36 on a chilly Denver day.

      The Dolphins controlled most of the game led by Ryan Tannehill , who passed for 228 yards and three touchdowns and also rushed for one touchdown. The Broncos however made all the right moves in the fourth quarter, scoring three consecutive touchdown drives led by Peyton Manning and running back C.J. Anderson.

      Miami was hit with injury bug yet again. Early reports are suggesting cornerback Jamar Taylor may be lost for the year and tackle Ja'Wuan James had a stinger early in the game and did not return. The Dolphins now stand at 6-5, with only five games to play. The AFC is stocked with a lot of good teams this year and the Dolphins are one of them but they can't keep letting games slip through fingers or they will be watching at home again come playoff time. Miami will travel to face division rival New York Jets on Monday night.
