Dolphins statistical projections: A look at the defensive stats three-quarters through the season

Chris Trotman

Keep up with all of our Miami Dolphins coverage

The Miami Dolphins have played 12 games, with four remaining. Based on the individual statistics through the first three-quarters of the season, we project the final stats for the key individuals from Miami's defense. You can find the offensive projections here.

The Miami Dolphins are 75-percent of the way through their 2013 schedule. As we did at the quarter- and half-marks of the season, we now will take a look at the individual stats for several of the Dolphins, and project where they will finish once the final four games are played. Yesterday, we completed the offensive players, so now we turn to the defensive side of the ball, as well as the special teams contributors.

Record:

Record after 12 games: 6-6
16 Game Projection: 8-8
Projection after 8 games: 8-8
Projection after 4 games: 12-4
