The Miami Dolphins were put back to earth on national television when they played the Saints. This was just a reminder that while The Dolphins may be improving , they still have a long way to go.
For Dolphin fans , They had a lot of positives to take away even front the first loss. 40 percent of the reason that the Dolphins were defeated against the Saints was due to turnovers: an interception and a fumble.
In addition , the Dolphins were in the game for the first half. If the Dolphins would have been able to capitalize on their drives , the entire game could have been different.
Looking at the schedule for the rest of the season , the Dolphins have a lot of favorable games. Besides the two meetings with the Patriots and the Ravens game, Miami should be listed as the favorites to win all of the other games, and they may even be favorites against Baltimore if they continue their mediocre ways. The Dolphins’ main concern is to stay consistent by putting up points, and staying healthy. If Miami can do both, they are the team to beat. The Bills and Jets have some building to do , so it may take them some time to reach a point of contention.
While Brady and the Patriots seem to be on fire, the fact of the matter is that a lot of his surrounding counterparts are inexperienced and need time to become cohesive. We have yet to see how some of these players will play in the really big games. Gronkowski will help the Pats, but defenses will be more keen on him because the Patriots won’t have the same dual TE threat that they have had in the past.
The Dolphins have the potential to make the playoffs , and even win the division. The Dolphins must win the games that they are supposed to, along with some of the tougher games. If they are able to do so, they will have no problem being within playoff reach.
