Dolphins vs. Cardinals: 10 Keys to the Game for Miami
Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Somehow, some way, the Arizona Cardinals are 3-0 as they prepare to face off with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. 

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. 

Despite their perceived lack of talent, the Cardinals have defied the odds and defeated the Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in the first three weeks of this 2012 season. 

If anything, the Cardinals' tale should be an inspiring one for the Miami Dolphins—another team that was ruled out of playoff contention by the masses before the season even started. 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.
