Yes, the Dolphins Can Still Make the Playoffs on Sunday; Here's How
The Dolphins still have a decent chance of getting in with some help, but they absolutely have to beat the hated Jets on Sunday before any of the other permutations of playoff possibilities can happen.
Here's what to look out for in this possibly final game of the 2013 season:
1. Enough With the Lack of Identity on Offense
Sometimes, the Dolphins seem like a team that is completely fatherless with no identity whatsoever. They pass when they need to run, they run when they need to sling it. Tannehill underthrows receivers one week, the receivers drop those passes the next. Sometimes Tannehill throws 40 passes for 300-plus yards, three TDs and no interceptions, while sometimes Daniel Thomas or Lamar Miller run for 100-plus yards and dominate the ground game. It's infuriating to watch this team because -- on paper -- there is at least a marginal degree of talent everywhere on offense but the game plan implemented is nearly always schizophrenic and unbalanced. Last week, there was about zero fucking offense and NOTHING worked so here's to hoping that on this -- the very possibly last game of the season -- the Dolphins get their shit together on offense. It's "our time," right? Maybe by "time" they meant Week 17.
