Coming into the season, there was little hope for the Dolphins to be a top team or even compete against top teams. They were playing with a rookie quarterback that many thought didn't have enough experience to start, they had a completely new coaching staff, and they traded their best wide receiver and cornerback.
However, even with all these new changes, the Dolphins have been competitive in every game and have shown that they are not going to be a pushover team this season.
The Dolphins now stand at 1-3 after a heartbreaking loss to the Arizona Cardinals in overtime. It was the second week in a row the Dolphins lost on a game-winning field goal in overtime.
Miami has seen a lot of positives and its share of negatives.
Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been showing improvement and showing coaches and fans why they took him with the eighth overall pick.
The running game has been stellar for the Dolphins and is a big reason why they have been competitive in all four games.
As for the negatives, the secondary continues to be a problem and the wide receiving corps is real short on talent.
Let's now take a look at how the positional units have performed after the first quarter of the season.
