New, comments

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

Adam Gase is a little fired up after Sunday’s performance against the Jets. Gase even remarked that there may be some changes on offense, which is very similar to the Titans game last season. After that game, the team went on winning streak and made the playoffs. So can this team rebound after Sunday’s loss?

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

How could the tanking New York Jets stun the surging Miami Dolphins? | The Daily Dolphin
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Adam Gase slammed the gum in his mouth into a plastic garbage can and then annoyingly tossed aside some plastic recovery shake before starting his brief post-game news conference. This one is going to take some time to recover from.
