Dolphins 2015 review: Looking back at the final stats for Miami

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins have completed their 2015 season. While we are all watching every twist and turn of the coaching search, we take a break to look at the final stats for the team.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 season was not the success the Miami Dolphins had envisioned before the year started. Talk of competing for the AFC East title and visions of a berth in the Playoffs disappeared into a 1-3 start, a fired head coach, injuries, and lackluster coaching and play. They appear to have talent, but were never able to put it together consistently enough to prevent a 6-10 record.

The team is currently conducting yet another search for a new head coach, but we also need to take a look back at the season that just ended. This morning, we look at the individual and team stats for the year.
