St. Louis Rams vs. Miami Dolphins: 10 Keys to the Game for the Dolphins
Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE

Entering their Week 6 matchup with the St. Louis Rams, the Miami Dolphins quietly lurk on the periphery of the NFL playoff picture. 

Do the Dolphins actually have a playoff-caliber team?

Well, they certainly have a playoff-caliber defense. Miami has the league's top-ranked run defense, and despite the loss of Vontae Davis and a group of no-name defensive backs, its secondary ranks 15th. 

Offensively, the Dolphins rank 13th in the NFL, thanks to the efforts of Reggie Bush, Brian Hartline, Davone Bess and the solid-but-unspectacular Ryan Tannehill. 

With a win on Sunday, the Dolphins can get back to .500 before embarking on a five-week stretch that includes winnable games against the Jets, Colts, Titans, Bills and Seahawks. But Miami can't afford to look ahead. If they indeed want to defy the odds and make a playoff run, they have to take care of business against St. Louis this week. 

By following these 10 keys, the 'Phins can do just that.
