Five things that need to happen for the Miami Dolphins to win the AFC East

It has been too long since the Miami Dolphins were able to win the AFC East title. It was six long seasons ago when we saw Ronnie Brown shock the NFL with the wild-cat offense that led to Miami’s division title.

Sidelined Branden Albert knows every offensive line position and tight end

The Miami Dolphins spent big on free agent offensive tackle Branden Albert during the 2014 offseason.

There has been a lot of talk so far as to what the Miami Dolphins plan to do at both guard positions on the offensive line. Many are assuming that second-year player Billy Turner is a lock to start at right guard. Based on the natural progression of things, that seems to be the case.

The second biggest need for the Miami Dolphins is one that has been an issue over the last few years, their offensive line.

The Miami Dolphins mediocre season ends in disappointment

After the Miami Dolphins lost to the New York Jets on Sunday, it put an end to a season in which at times looked very positive.
