It's a shame that they didn't start this one game sooner, but for we fans, it's better late than never. This at least gives us something to cheer about in the cold months of the NFL. For the coaches, it is evaluation time as playoff chances are slim.

Here come … the Dolphins? Once left for dead at 1–7 by pundits like, maybe, the guy writing this column, Miami’s roared back to life with four straight wins, with games against the Giants and Jets sandwiching a bye up next. So yes, there’s a real chance the Dolphins will go into Christmas week at .500, with real playoff aspirations, thanks to Sundays like the one they just had in blowing the Panthers out of Hard Rock Stadium, 33–10. And in coach Brian Flores’s mind, really, they’re here not because they suddenly started playing better, but because they didn’t take their foot off the gas when things weren’t going right.https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/11/29/mmqb- ... d-of-story

Their playstyle is what the MMQB’s Albert Breerhttps://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/ ... ronger/was
talking about Monday on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd.
“I think Miami’s got a chance to get stronger because they play this sort of way,” Breer said
. “Are they flashy? No. Is Tua the long-term answer? Maybe. Maybe not. Are they gonna beat you with all kinds of speed on the outside? It doesn’t look like it. But, can they play in a phonebooth? Miami can play in a phonebooth.”
