Where the Dolphins currently stand

The NFL is really weird, last week I was calculating the Dolphins draft position of what it could possibly be by the end of the season (My predictions was somewhere between 12-16). I thought even though the Dolphins weren't mathematically eliminated there was no way they were going to the playoffs, not even with an 8-8 record. Too many teams would have needed to lose in week 15. However now after one week there is a possibility, maybe a small one but one that I could see realistically coming true. If you haven't heard already this is what the Dolphins need to happen:

1. Dolphins win vs. Buffalo AND at New England- I see the win versus Buffalo this Sunday, but the New England one would be hard. However with the Patriots already in the playoffs they could possibly rest some players.

2. Jets lose vs. San Diego OR at Buffalo- Not too worried about this one, the 2012 Jets excel at playing bad football

3. Bengals lose at Pittsburgh AND vs. Baltimore- I could realistically see this happening. Andy Dalton still hasn't beaten the Steelers yet in his career and Baltimore although they have looked bad lately they are still a playoff team with good talent. 

4. Steelers win vs. Cincinnati AND lose vs. Cleveland- This is where the Dolphins need to do some praying. It would seem pretty unlikely that the Steelers would lose to Cleveland in Pittsburgh. However the Browns did beat them earlier in the season so anything could happen. 

If they don't make the playoffs they are currently hold the #15 pick in the draft, so theres that.
