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.

Lamar Miller’s 97-Yard TD Vs. Jets Was Longest Run In Dolphins History (GIF)

Lamar Miller entered Sunday needing 79 rushing yards to reach 1,000 on the season. He only needed one carry to take care of that. In the third quarter against the New York Jets, the Miami Dolphins running back took the handoff at his own 3-yard line and went nearly untouched for a 97-yard touchdown run. We’re guessing that’s not how the Jets defense drew it up. Miller’s impressive...

Entering the final week of the 2014 regular season, running back Lamar Miller has a chance to accomplish something that no Miami Dolphins player has done in several years.
