NFL: Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

First off, big congrats to the Buffalo Bills for ending their playoff drought. Secondly, the Miami Dolphins season is finally over and we can begin all the speculation for the offseason.

The Dolphins can rebuild their coaching staff and roster this offseason, while getting key players back from injury, none bigger than the return of Ryan Tannehill at quarterback.

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