From the 2 seed to missing the playoffs... The range of possibilities is amazing with only two games left to play. Rarely is there this many possibilities this late in the season.
1. Win Out, Patriots lose out, and Indy, Bengals, and/or Ravens all finish at 10-6 (or the 2 division winners finish 10-6 anyway) - Miami then wins the division and is the number two seed.
2. Lose 2 and miss the playoffs (7% chance the Dolphins could still back in at 8-8 - but who wants that?).
If the Bengals or Ravens lose this week, Miami can lose a game and still get in relatively easily...
The only way this should play-out is getting into the playoffs winning 5 straight... It would serve us well - and it would serve notice to the NFL that Miami has finally arrived. The Dolphins are a very young team with a (soon to be franchise) QB getting better and better.
Buffalo is a very bad match-up for the Phins. Their strength is that Defensive Line. It can be argued that the Bills D-Line is better than the Ravens' or the Bengals'. So, like Keith Sims says, Miami's coaching staff must keep that defense from teeing-off on Tannehill. On the other hand, the Dolphins should have no problem beating the Jets. South Florida's team is far superior.
