This Miami Dolphins season is taking a turn for the worse. After starting with a promising 3-0 record, the Fins have dropped three in a row. They’re coming off a loss to the New England Patriots. All the hype and hysterics of the Dolphins’ return to greatness are now being replaced with familiar calls for owner Stephen Ross to get rid of GM Jeff Ireland and blow up the team. Ryan Tannehill is showing signs of being yet another replaceable quarterback, there is no running game, and the team has possibly the worst offensive line in the league.
But fear not, Fins fans. The season is young, and there still is hope the Dolphins could find ways to right the sinking ship. The team’s defense is its greatest strength, and the Cincinnati Bengals are no juggernaut. This Thursday could very easily mark the victory that sets off a series of wins that pushes the Dolphins to the playoffs.
