The Miami Dolphins enter this week struggling despite some spark shown last weekend by the offense when Jay Cutler went out due to a concussion and was replaced by Matt Moore. Miami enters the week needing a win to stay relevant in any discussion as it pertains to the postseason as the Dolphins find themselves with a four and six record, ten games into the season. The team will need to nearly run the table for the final six games to have any realistic shot at the postseason. The final six games will not start out as an easy task as the Phins will face their division leader New England Patriots.
As far as the Patriots are concerned they are once again, as has become all too familiar to Phins fans, in first place in the division and one of the best teams in the conference. At eight and two New England is running away with the division with the second place AFC East team, the Buffalo Bills, sitting at an even five and five, three games back. The New York Jets, like the Dolphins, are sitting at four and six.
