Dolphins statistical rankings through 5 weeks

Mike Ehrmann

The Miami Dolphins have played five games so far this season. Where do they stack up statistically? We take a look.

With the Miami Dolphins having the bye this week, it's been a weekend of taking a step back and enjoying the relaxation.  But, it's also a chance for us to look at some things other that purely on the field news.  We do that again this evening with a look at the Dolphins' statistical rankings through five games (all rankings for entire NFL).
