The Miami Dolphins were on their bye this weekend as the team got a much needed rest. Before the bye however, the team was sitting at first place in the AFC East and that did not change after Sunday’s games. The Buffalo Bills may have won, but the Dolphins have the advantage over them by having the head-to-head tiebreaker after beating the Bills back in week 3. The New England Patriots got a win, if you can call it that, over the New York Jets placing both teams a game behind the Bills and Dolphins at 6-4. The Dolphins have a pretty easy matchup against the Houston Texans this Sunday, but after that, they have a challenging schedule for the final stretch of the season.

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