There are three weeks left in the 2023 season and there are quite a few scenarios on how the Miami Dolphins can make the postseason. The Dolphins are in such a great position that they can enter the postseason as the No. 1 seed, hosting a game as the winners of the AFC East, or as a wildcard team. If the Dolphins beat the Dallas Cowboys this weekend, they will clinch a playoff spot and then we can start and hopefully get some help around the league. It would make it so much easier if the Dolphins simply one all three of their last games and secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

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