Maybe slow down on the Deshaun Watson trade dreams

Maybe slow down on the Deshaun Watson trade dreams

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports ESPN’s Chris Mortensen sent the Miami Dolphins fanbase into a craze this week with speculation that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, unhappy with the amount of input the team has given him in the search for their new general manager and head coach, would “consider” a trade to the Dolphins. Forget 2020 fifth-overall pick Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins could land a top tier quarterback and solve all their problems in one fell swoop. Miami instantly would become a Super Bowl contender, and everything would be right in the...

Senior Bowl 2021: Dolphins to coach NFL draft prospects in event

The Miami Dolphins coaching staff will work the 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl, according to multiple media reports, including from the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson and ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe.

Dolphins 2021 schedule: Opponents finalized pending potential 17th game

The Miami Dolphins finished their 2020 regular season with a 10-6 record, but did not qualify for the playoffs. That means, as good as they were this year, it is disappointing that they are already preparing for the 2021 season instead of a Wildcard game. Last week, we took a look at the preliminary Dolphins opponents list for 2021. Now, we can take a look at the (almost) finalized list of teams Miami will face next year. The NFL’s annual schedule is based on a rotation. While each team will face the other three teams in their division twice, once at home and once away to...

Dolphins vs Bills stock watch: Miami gets blown out in season finale

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ The Miami Dolphins did not show up against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, ending what is actually a successful season for a rebuilding franchise, is a miserable fashion. The Dolphins had a chance at making the playoffs just a year after finishing 5-11, but they saw all paths to the postseason crumble away throughout the day. As the season ended Sunday night, Miami was a 10-6 team on the wrong side of the playoff cutline. In a season where the NFL expanded the playoffs, somehow the AFC still ended up with a ten-win team not making the playoffs....

Both teams entered the game looking to continue playing next weekend, with the Bills having clinched the AFC East division title already, while Miami could make the playoffs with a win.

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ It all comes down to today. By the end of Sunday, the Miami Dolphins will either be headed to the playoffs with a Wildcard game next weekend, or they will be getting ready for 2021. The easiest path for them is a simple one, beat the Buffalo Bills this afternoon. They can still clinch a berth with a loss, but a win locks them in the postseason and they do not need to scoreboard watch. The Bills have claimed the AFC East title this year, ending the New England Patriots’ streak atop the division. They could look to today’s game as a chance...
