In case you missed it... The Miami Dolphins can secure the final spot in the AFC playoffs with a win against a WILDLY depleted New Orleans Saints team tonight on Monday Night Football. You heard that right, a playoff spot.
The team who started the season 1-7.
The team we were sure, would be lookin at a high first round draft pick.
The team, who some say, was about to get rid of their quarterback and head coach to go into yet ANOTHER rebuild.
Yes, that team can get into the playoffs with a win tonight.
And there are two men who deserve all the credit. Brian Flores and Tua Tagovailoa. These two have done EVERYTHING right these last few weeks. They took advantage of their schedule. They took advantage of their opponents deficiencies and they kept putting up Ws. Even in games where it looked like it was all about to fold.
Now, they still have some heavy lifting to do. According to ESPN's Football Power Index, the Dolphins have a 9.2% chance of making the playoffs. Why so low you ask? Two words... Titans & Patriots. Those are the Dolphins last two games. It's going to take more than faith to create wins out of those two games. The Titans want to secure their playoff position and the Patriots want to move out of the wild card slot and win the division.
If the Dolphins can pull this off, they would be the FIRST team in NFL history to get to the playoffs after losing seven of their first eight games. If you're a Jags fan, you might wanna flip the channel for a bit and cheer for the Dolphins. They could use all the support they can get.
