Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

I know it's not an exciting matchup but the Dolphins offensive line vs the Jets defensive line is a going to be the factor on how this game goes. The New York Jets are considered one of, if not the best, at stopping the run while the Dolphins o-line has been dominating at the the line the past couple of weeks. Not only have they allowed Jay Ajayi to run over teams, the line has also kept Ryan Tannehill clean. We may need Tannehill's arm to win this game against the Jets putrid pass defense.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
