Rich Rodriguez, Phinfever, Miami DolphinsThe Good

It is interesting that the Dolphins won but not much happened in the way of good. The offense was terrible. The defense was terrible. The only really glaring bright spot on this team right now is Xavien Howard, who is showing himself to be a Pro Bowl caliber corner, bordering on shut down. Two more interceptions puts him at first in the NFL.

The Bad

The Dolphins offense couldn't run the ball or throw the ball effectively. This all starts up front at the offensive line. But the playcalling continues to be questionable as well.

The defense struggled to contain Josh Allen and couldn't seem to adjust to what he was doing. This goes back to scheme and in-game adjustments.

The Ugly

The Dolphins are still in it, but again, it doesn't feel like they are really in it. In my opinion, they played better against the Colts in a loss, than against the Bills in a win. This team simply does not have a signature game where things click on all cylinders. Quite the opposite, this is a very flawed team that wins in spite of itself.


The Dolphins are currently right behind the 6th seed Baltimore Ravens in terms of a wildcard spot. Unfortunately, the face a Patriots team that is still playing for something, homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. The Dolphins would need one of those signature performances to beat the Patriots. Can they make that happen? To date, there has been no indication they can...
