Five Questions Heading Into the Dolphins' Last Preseason Game

The Miami Dolphins complete their preseason schedule tonight against the St.Louis Rams, and a lot of questions still remain. Entering the 2014-15 season, the team wants to change its mediocre ways and get back into the playoffs for the first time still 2010. If that is to happen, a lot of things must fall the Dolphins way, and a few areas must be solidified.

Through three preseason games, the Dolphins offense has run warm and cold, impressing early with a touchdown on their first drive against Atlanta, then most recently laying an egg against the Dallas Cowboys starters, a defense that may be the worst in football. The defense has performed more to expectations, good pass rush, not so great secondary work.

So what can we look for in in the last preseason contest, a game that is traditionally the least appetizing warm-up game? Let's take a look.
