It's a good thing that games are played on the field rather than in a booth of talking heads or on your latest Madden game. Each year the Dolphins have played beyond everyone's expectations. One thing I will say is that the AFC East should be tougher this year as all teams should improve. I'm not sure if the Bills have hit their peak yet, and the Patriots and Jets have impressive first year QBs leading their teams.

Nearly 30 people. And of those nearly 30 participants in the panel, only 9 selected the Dolphins to make the playoffs at all. One, Marc Sessler, picked the Dolphins to win the AFC East. Two, Judy Battista and Jeffri Chadiha, picked the Dolphins to finish as the AFC’s No. 5 seed. Two more still, former NFL general manager Scott Pioli and Jeremy Bergman, chose Miami to finish as the No. 6 seed. And four panelists picked Miami to finish as the No. 7 seed: Lance Zierlein, Maurice Jones-Drew, Gregg Rosenthal and Marcas Grant.https://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/2021/ ... s-in-2021/
The other 20 omitted the Dolphins, leaving Miami ranked by consensus as the No. 9 team in the conference.
