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: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Dolphin fans are still basking in the glory of the Miami Miracle but the Dolphins are going to get back to work and prepare for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The Dolphins are still outside of the playoffs and in a race for one of the wildcard spots. If the Dolphins can take care of the Vikings, they have a pretty smooth schedule for the last two games. The team still has to face the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills (who they already beat). Both of those games are very winnable.

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