While enduring three consecutive losing seasons, the Miami Dolphins have ranked last in the NFL in takeaways with 59.
Coincidence? They don't think so. New coach Joe Philbin says his team must start finding a way to win the turnover battle.
The Dolphins go into Sunday's opener at Houston lightly regarded because they're relying on rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill to lead an offense that lacks playmakers. But if the defense can start shaking the ball free more frequently, Miami might exceed expectations.
Last year the Dolphins tied for sixth-worst in the league with 19 takeaways, and despite a new coaching staff this year, change has yet to come. Miami didn't come up with a single interception during the exhibition season - and went 0-4.
