Where Do the Dolphins Go from Here?

It has been a crazy nine days since the Miami Dolphins suffered a loss to the Patriots in New England.

In that time Miami offensive lineman Mike Pouncey was served a subpoena in the Aaron Hernandez case, Jonathan Martin left the team with an undisclosed (at the time) illness, Miami won a thrilling overtime Thursday night matchup against the Bengals with a walk-off safety, and just yesterday a rather nasty transcript of a voicemail sent from Richie Incognito to Martin was made public, which prompted the Dolphins to suspend Incognito indefinitely.

If you thought the Dolphins offensive line was bad before, you probably won't want to see what it looks like now. We have witnessed a historically bad offensive line this season, and it's not looking any more promising.

We can look on the bright side, though. Miami snapped their four-game losing streak with a huge victory last week. They are back in the playoff hunt at .500 and face the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Monday night in another prime time game. Miami isn't getting much respect before that game, so if you're looking to place a bet SBO.ag is the site for your football odds.

The Dolphins finally committed to the run last week, with Lamar Miller running for his first career 100-yard game. If Miami continues to make an attempt to run the ball they should hopefully be able to confuse the defense enough to give Ryan Tannehill a little time to throw the football.

Will this team rebound from losing two of its starting offensive linemen? The national eye is on them following a big win, but for all the wrong reasons. Winning cures everything, though, so let's hope for a little Thursday night magic.
