Dolphins win 37-35 over the Vikings in thrilling fashion

Nothing about the Dolphins eight victories have been orthodox. On a day when the coaching change winds have been swirling among media circles, all eyes were on the Dolphins down 17-7 at the half.  Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater showed why he was chosen in the first round despite a poor workout for NFL teams. Roaring back in the second half didn’t seem likely as the Dolphins...

It looks like the Miami Dolphins offensive line completely forgot what play they were supposed to run here, everyone except for the center that is.

Delicada la situación actual de los Dolphins.

Sobre el juego de hoy solo diré que los Dolphins de Miami van con su mejor personal desde la salida de Branden Albert, para enfrentar en casa a unos Vikings de Minnesota que han venido de menos a más. Los Dolphins tendrán que ser mejor en la defensa que en las últimas dos salidas, ya que de no hacer un mejor trabajo defensivo podría comenzar a escribirse el capítulo final de...

Film Review: Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots

It turned out to be a slow painful death to the season.  The Dolphins were crushed in New England. I will say I did not talk to one single Dolphin fan that expected them to win so I don’t think anyone is shocked. Joe Philbin is now directly on the hot seat as it appears likely that the  Dolphins are out of the playoffs for the third straight year under Philbin and they have to...

Is it worth losing for the Miami Dolphins if head coach Joe Philbin gets fired?

I’m torn. I love my team and as a result I obviously wish for a Dolphins win every week. But at this point of the season I have a problem, as the more games the Dolphins win the greater the chance of Joe Philbin keeping his job. Miami are all but eliminated from playoff contention and are also theoretically only hurting their order in the draft by winning their remaining games...

"Yeah, we love him," Carr said, per the Bay Area News Group. "He's our leader. Absolutely. We love him. Obviously, those decisions...

Is the Miami Dolphins Week 16 tilt one of the top-5 NFL games to watch?

It’s hard to believe that calendar has already reached mid-December, with only two weeks left in the NFL regular season. That means it’s stretch time, as every game takes on added implications. It also means that the NFL landscape looks different than most people would have predicted. As the final two weeks of the season get underway, there are a slew of big games involving teams...

Are major changes coming down the line for the Miami Dolphins?

Man, the Miami Dolphins really do make all of us cry. They also make us pout, blame, point fingers, get angry at the TV, and finally make us clamor for change. Change is hard to come by. The Dolphins players are at-fault and it’s hard to ignore their lackluster effort week in week out. It seems like every other week the Dolphins win and even if they win…they really lose. It...

When Miami Dolphins wide receiver pulled in this beautiful one-handed reception for a touchdown he had to be pretty happy.
