Despite those heartbreaking collapses, the Dolphins have kept themselves in position to make a playoff run—however slim their chances may be.
The Dolphins' next five opponents have a combined record of 10-14. Only one of those teams—the St. Louis Rams—has a record above .500, but as you'll see in Slide 1, they aren't a particularly intimidating matchup for the 'Phins.
Don't get your hopes up, though.
Miami is still largely untested and it cannot withstand injuries to more than a handful of players. Reggie Bush has slowed down from his ridiculous start and Ryan Tannehill is only generating a modest 237 passing yards per game.
But, considering how dominant the Dolphins' defense has been and how rapidly Tannehill has progressed, anything is possible.
