What to expect from the Miami Dolphins in any given week is a mystery. After three straight wins with two coming in dramatic fashion, victories over Indianapolis and Atlanta, the Dolphins have dropped three straight including heartbreakers in each of the last two games. From the quarterback position to the special teams, the play of the Miami Dolphins could not have been more inconsistent through six games.The Miami offensive front has been historically bad on a weekly basis, but the Dolphins have sought to shore up those issues with the signing of former Baltimore Raven and former University of Miami All-American tackle Bryant McKinnie. The Dolphins are on pace to allow the most sacks in NFL history, but even before the recent addition of McKinnie, the Dolphins' offensive front is coming off of its best game.In Sunday's 23-21 loss to Buffalo, the offensive line yielded a season-low two sacks and grounded out a season-high 120 yards. For many teams, allowing two sacks is har...

Lamar Miller Poised for a Fantasy Breakout

Here are my top fantasy match-ups for week 8 of the NFL season.

Miami Dolphins: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#19)

Last week: 17 (-2) Record: 3-3 Remember when the Dolphins started 3-0 and everyone thought they were awesome? I pointed out that 22 of 32 teams last year win at least 3 games in a row at some point, including the 7-9 Dolphins. Doing it at the beginning of the season makes it more noticeable, but not necessarily more impressive. In 2011, the Bills started 3-0 and the Cardinals started...

Jonathan Martin flipping sides yet again

Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin played left tackle in college, but he started his first 12 professional games on the right side last year with Jake Long manning the left. Martin, however, started the last four games of the 2012 season at left tackle with Long out to injury. The Dolphins were indecisive about where to put Martin this offseason but ultimately opted...

Bill Belichick says Charles Clay is 'more than just a receiver'

Miami Dolphins tight end Charles Clay has established himself as a very real factor in the passing game. Clay has a touchdown reception in his last three contests and is averaging 12.7 yards a reception on 24 catches, including longs of 67 and 45 yards in two different games. But the New England Patriots, who host the Dolphins Sunday, aren't just preparing to defend his pass...

Protection problematic for Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Ryan Tannehill is playing lately like a quarterback under duress, which he is. During the Miami Dolphins' three-game losing streak, Tannehill has been sacked 12 times and committed seven turnovers.

Dolphins at Patriots - Keys to a 'Fins Win

The 3-0 start has been squandered by the Miami Dolphins as Miami limps into to New England at 3-3 and on a three-game skid. The last two losses have come at home to the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills by a combined five points. If there is good news for the Dolphins, it's that they have been a better team on the road this season.To snap their three-game skid, the Dolphins...

Opening Lines: Week 8

The Patriots opened as 6.5-point favorites as they host the Miami Dolphins in Week 8. This line has me as confused as a referee in last week’s game. Of New England’s five wins this year, four were in serious doubt heading into the final two or three minutes. Points have been at a premium for this edition of the Pats -- the 2007 juggernaut, this is not. And I feel like I...
