Could the Dolphins returning starters provide a boost?

Over the course of the first four games the Dolphins have been without their starting center, middle linebacker, safety, and running back.

Are any Miami Dolphins either of the week’s biggest heroes or goats?

But it was a game, against a real opponent and with a final score; so it meant something. Preseason games can be tricky.
