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.
