The Splash Zone 9/29/16: Previewing Tonight's Game Against The Cincinnati Bengals

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.

The Dolphins will be facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals tonight, on Thursday Night Football. After a disappointing win against the Cleveland Browns, the Dolphins are looking to prove that they are a better team than that. The Dolphins have a number of injuries and will be starting some backups. Most notably, Dion Sims will be starting and the Dolphins believe he is their "little secret".

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