The Dolphins have scored 158 points total this season. Between field goals and extra points, kicker Dan Carpenter has scored 68 of those points. Basically, the dude is responsible for a ridiculous 42 percent of the Dolphin's scoring this season, including the Jets game where he was the only person to score. Well, Carpenter's groin is giving him problems, and the team is working out new kickers.
