The Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots completed their second meeting of the year, with the Dolphins coming away with a miracle win. Final Score Patriots 33 - Dolphins 34 Immediate Reactions This was a fun game, no matter which way it ended.

It was a great game to watch. But man was it stressful. There are things Miami has to clean up - especially on defense, but they came away with a win that...

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has left the team’s Week 14 game against the New England Patriots with an ankle injury.

The team has not made an announcement on the likelihood of Tannehill returning. Brock Osweiler replaced Tannehill in the...

Cameron Wake explains his number 91 choice

Cameron Wake explains his number 91 choice

The Miami Dolphins have some iconic jersey numbers. Dan Marino’s 13, Bob Griese’s 12, and Larry Csonka’s 39 are all retired by the team. Jason Taylor’s 99 and Zach Thomas’ 54 are both out of circulation because fans identify them so closely with those legendary players. And, Cameron Wake’s 91 is in that group, even as the defensive end continues to play. Wake, in his tenth season, has 96.5 career sacks. Taylor’s franchise-record 131.0 works out to an average of 10.1 sacks per season. Wake - with four games remaining to finish his tenth season - is averaging 9.7 sacks per...
