The season hangs in the balance for the Miami Dolphins versus the Jets today. Both teams share the same record at 5-6 and the key to the playoffs. Today's game not only serves as a must-win game for the Dolphins, but an opportunity to win on the road and quiet the naysayers about this team and their ability to win with their backs against the wall. The Dolphins have a chance to get back into the playoff hunt with a win versus the Jets and several other scenarios. In fact, the Dolphins must beat the Jets twice and then next week versus Pittsburgh. The Dolphins are 4-3 in conference play and can improve on that today.
As news trickled out of various sports news outlets last night that Jonathan Martin would not be playing for the Dolphins this season and would be placed on the NFI (Non-football Injury/Illness list) the Dolphins promoted an extra safety from the practice squad D.J. Campbell.
As if news couldn't get any worse for Miami in that it already has, the Dolphins will look to running back Marcus Thigpen to fill the spot left vacant after a season ending foot injury to running back Daniel Thomas.no comments
