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.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins will be taking on the Jets on Sunday. The teams have already faced off once with a Jets victory in week 3. But this Dolphins team right now is much more different from that week 3 team.

The Dolphins should be angry after losing to this team once, don’t let it happen again.

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