I’m not going to lie. I woke up yesterday morning expecting the Dolphins to get dominated by the Falcons. After one half of play, it looked grim. But as they say: “Any given Sunday”. The Dolphins found a way to pull of a great comeback. Jay Cutler looked sharp in the second half and Jay Ajayi was running angry. Thanks to some great play from the defense the Dolphins closed out the game with a Reshad Jones interception. This game reminds me of last year against the Steelers, where the team turned around their season. Let’s hope they can keep building on this momentum.

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

Suddenly a team that seemed to be going off the rails last week with home fans booing, and offensive line coaches resigning, and players losing their tempers on the sideline and calling out fans days later, gets a respite from the lunacy.
