Sorry, guys. I am hopeful, but we'd better have some John Madden pixie dust to get over on all these teams.

If the Dolphins somehow miraculously take down the Pats this week...does that make them a legitimate playoff contender?

That would certainly keep Miami in the running. But here is the problem: The Dolphins still have to play at SF and at NE. Remaining schedule is brutal. I don't see how they get to the minimum nine wins that's needed.

Nine wins isn't necessary to make the playoffs. The Broncos got in with 8 last year. The way things are shaping up, a team could realistically get in with 8 or 9 wins this year. Right now, we're one of those teams depending on how the next two weeks go. If we're able to split and win one of our next two, then we stay in the hunt. After that we have the Jags and Bills at home back to back. The final game of the year might be one where the Pats have already locked things down and they might rest players. So if we manage to weather the next two weeks, there is a good chance we could string together three in a row to finish out. That may or may not put us in a position to get in as a wildcard.
