The Miami Dolphins had to take care of business against the Washington Commanders and needed some help to claim the #1 spot in the AFC. The Dolphins destiny is in their own hands over the final month of the season. They have two very winnable games coming up against the Tennessee Titans and the New York Jets over the next two games. Week 16 is when the fun starts on the final three game stretch. The Dolphins will have to overcome their allergies of beating winning record teams as they face off against the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens, and the Buffalo Bills (who may or may not have a winning record at that time).

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