The Miami Dolphins clinched a playoff berth in Week 16 thanks to Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs, but don't expect the team to rest their starters. Adam Gase has had a ‘1-0’ mentality all year and it applies to the last game of the regular season even with a playoff appearance on the horizon. The team has a slight chance of obtaining the 5 seed from the Chiefs in which Miami would head down to Houston to play the Texans, but I don't expect the Chargers to take down Andy Reid’s team.
“We need to do everything to make sure we are 1-0 at the end of this week,” Gase said, via the Miami Herald. “I talked to [owner Stephen] Ross last night and Mike and Chris. We were talking about our plan going forward this week. We have an opportunity to play after Week 17 but our main focus is this week. We are going to stick to plan and not look ahead. This is a team if you look past them, they will embarrass you.”
Gase texted Christensen start of week: we are gonna play this thing to win. #Dolphins— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) December 29, 2016
Do you think certain starters should rest or should the whole team play?
