Entering this season, the Cardinals had a rather dismal outlook.
One year after signing a $65 million deal, Kevin Kolb lost the starting quarterback job to former fifth-round draft pick John Skelton. Beyond that, Arizona had no viable wide receiving threats outside of Larry Fitzgerald, and its defense ranked just 18th in the NFL in 2011.

However, if the Dolphins don't win this daunting road matchup, then whatever playoff hopes this team has will take a damaging blow.
But by following these 10 keys, the 'Phins can get back to .500 and escape from Arizona with a win.
