Not many people correctly predicted how the Miami Dolphins' season would start.
Their rookie quarterback was believed to be too "raw" to be a viable starter in his first season in the NFL. The lack of talent at wide receiver was also predicted to be a problem, especially with a rookie quarterback. The secondary was also a big question mark as to whether the Dolphins would have a successful season.
Many predicted this would be a rebuilding year for the Dolphins, but Miami has been proving people wrong through six games this season. They have been in all but one game and were it not for a couple missed field goals, could be leaders in what is now a four-way tie for the AFC East.
Within Miami's early success, there have been players that have had great starts to the season. For some, it was predicted that they would be key contributors for this team.
Others, however, have had a rough patch to begin the season and will look to bounce back after the Dolphins' bye week.
Here are the Dolphins off to the best and worst starts to the season.
