The Miami Dolphins playoff hopes are still alive - can Kenyan Drake propel them? Also, we talk Xavien Howard, Saquon Barkley and the future of the NFL.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports


The Miami Dolphins dominated the Denver Broncos in all three phases of the game and came away with a 35-9 victory on Sunday. This means their slim playoff hopes are still alive, but they'll need to win their remaining four games and it won't be an easy task.

Can Kenyan Drake and Xavien Howard build off the Broncos game and carry that forward over the next four games? They'll be tested quickly against the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. If they can continue the success they found on Sunday, the Dolphins just might be able to pull off the upset against the Patriots. We'll also discuss how the special teams unit can build off their success from the Broncos game.

With Drake emerging on Sunday, there are now questions as to whether or not he can sustain this. If he can, does this mean the Dolphins should look away frmo an elite talent like Saquon Barkley? Head Coach Adam Gase said he doesn't like to have featured backs, but MC$ and Sutton explain how his history of running backs says otherwise.

As always, we take your questions frmo the Phinsider Radio mailbag. Then, we close out the show with a depressing look at the future of the NFL. Will it still be around in 15-20 years? We discuss after a brutal Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals game on Monday Night Football.
