Tannehill out, Osweiler to start for second straight week; NFL investigating Dolphins’ injury report use

The Miami Dolphins have ruled quarterback Ryan Tannehill out of Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions, head coach Adam Gase told the media on Wednesday.

This comes as the NFL is now set to investigate the Dolphins’ handling of...

Miami Dolphins Film Room: Nick O’Leary, Week 6 vs. the Chicago Bears

Nick O’Leary is a recent acquisition of the Miami Dolphins, filling a key niche in the offense at TE. Let’s delve into the tape. The Golden Bear’s grandson, Nick O’Leary, didn’t become a Miami Dolphins TE very long ago. Yet, he logged 53 snaps this Sunday vs. the Chicago Bears. Here’s 12 of them in GIF form...(in chronological order) The Tape Left uncovered. Makes the sure catch. Rumble, bumble, stumbles for a good gain. 1st down on the 2nd play of the game.

Opposing Player Spotlight: Week 7, Detroit Lions

Opposing Player Spotlight: Week 7, Detroit Lions

The Dolphins are coming off of a roller coaster win that saw the team’s defense play two very different halves. How will that defense handle Detroit’s aerial attack? The Miami Dolphins pulled through in a wild victory over the NFC North leading Bears last weekend. The team’s offense finally started rolling behind backup quarterback Brock Osweiler and speedy pass catcher Albert Wilson, both of whom made big plays when it mattered most. The Dolphins defense, however, started hot in the first half, allowing zero points before nearly collapsing over the final two quarters. The secondary...

Our Miami Dolphins earned the right to brag this week

One of the most best games I’ve ever attended I’m not even sure where to begin. I know one thing for certain. Sunday’s game was one of the best games I have ever watched live. Hands down. Not even a debate. My voice is still mostly gone today on this Tuesday morning. I’m exhausted and my face is burnt from the hot South Florida sun and I do not care. Worth every second. I arrived back home in Atlanta yesterday to seeing myself on Twitter. Dolphins’ playoff odds jump after wild Bears win — and their schedule now softens up https://t.co/bjwGj4aDnU— Adam Beasley...
