The Miami Dolphins enter the 2013 calendar year with plenty of questions surrounding a roster that over-performed at times and looked completely overmatched at others.
Miami Dolphins running back came very close to joining a very elite club with the Miami Dolphins. He needed 40 yards entering Sunday’s game to rush for 1,000 yards for a second straight season.
So much for the Patriots’ problems. Rebounding from a rare slump, Tom Brady and his teammates earned a playoff bye with a 28-0 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday after two mediocre performances.
The Miami Dolphins are finishing their fourth straight non-playoff season. The New England Patriots have clinched their fourth consecutive AFC East title. So what’s there to play for in Sunday’s regular-season finale? Plenty, both teams say.
New England will be looking for a second win against a Dolphins team they defeated by a touchdown in Week 13. The Dolphins, however, are seeking to best the AFC East division champs in order to end their season on a positive note.
With an underwhelming offense that needs upgrades to become playoff-worthy, the Miami Dolphins this winter could be eager to reach a deal with a 1,000-yard rusher who can also catch passes and score from anywhere on the field.
The Miami Dolphins victory on Sunday was a hollow one because the team was eliminated from the playoffs. But, the game was also an audition of sorts for left tackle Jonathan Martin and running back Reggie Bush.
Reggie Bush caught two touchdown passes and scored on a short run Sunday to help the Miami Dolphins beat the Bills 24-10.
It’s unlikely at this point, but the Miami Dolphins at least have a slight chance to earn a postseason spot. The Buffalo Bills’ playoff drought continues.
The Dolphins appear to have the edge in their upcoming matchup against a Bills team which has given up a total of 65 points in its last two contests.
