The Miami Dolphins’ 2019 season came to an end on Sunday with an upset victory over the New England Patriots. The win pushed Miami to 5-11 on the season, a year in which the team tore apart their roster, trading or releasing several veteran players, cutting salary cap requirements for 2020, and adding selection for the next couple of Drafts. It was a long year for the Dolphins and the Dolphins’ fans, but it is a year that has the team positioned to rebuild, grow, and develop into a potential annual contender.

A lot of things have to happen and happen correctly for Miami to reach the goals they want to reach. Draft picks and free agent signings have to succeed. The salary cap cannot be mismanaged now that it is coming back into order. And, the coaching staff has to continue to develop. Thus far, it has appeared first-year head coach Brian Flores is the right man to be Miami’s head coach, developing the young players on the roster this year while keeping the team together and getting them to play hard, despite the losses early in the year.

How well did Flores and the Dolphins play this year? We start with a look at the offense:
