Before the season started, success for the Miami Dolphins through their first five games was defines as 2-3, thanks to having to play on the road at the Cleveland Browns, at the Indianapolis Colts, home against the Atlanta Falcons, at the New Orleans Saints, and, finally, home against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. The expectations were to come out of that stretch 1-4.
But the team exceeded that. They started 3-0, then dropped the final two games, leaving a bad taste in the mouth. But, they are still ahead of schedule, and are still a winning team in the NFL.
The Dolphins remaining schedule is: vs. Buffalo Bills, at New England Patriots, vs. Cincinnati Bengals (Thursday Night Football), at Tamp Bay Buccaneers (Monday Night Football), vs. San Diego Chargers, vs. Carolina Panthers, at New York Jets, at Pittsburgh Steelers, vs. New England Patriots, at Buffalo Bills, vs. New York Jets.
Which brings us to our poll question. The team has 11 games remaining. What are your expectations over those 11 games? Will the Dolphins continue to win? Will they fall back to a .500 record, or worse? Vote in the poll below and let us know.
