The Miami Dolphins arrived at their bye week a .500 team Dante Fowler Jersey , which is no surprise because for the past quarter century they've been a .500 franchise.Their record since 1994: 197-197. Their record this year: 5-5. Coach Adam Gase's three-year record: 21-21.If there's a middle of the pack, the Dolphins are in the middle of it. They haven't won a playoff game since 2000, but they could well be headed for their third 8-8 finish in the past six years."These are tough times to be a Dolphin fan," tweeted their former fullback, Pro Football Hall of Famer Larry Csonka. "Very frustrating. Shabby football."Far from perfect, for sure. Given the way the season has gone, it's amazing the Dolphins can still talk with a straight face about making the playoffs.They've been decimated by injuries, including the loss of quarterback Ryan Tannehill for the past five games. They've been outgained by 787 yards, third-worst in the league, and outscored by 57 points. They rank 28th in offense and 26th in defense.Yet they began the week with the eighth-best record in the AFC, while eight teams had worse records.In sum: more Miami mediocrity."We are in a good position," running back Frank Gore said with a straight face. "We just need to stay as one, believe in each other, believe in our coaching staff and try to get the next one."The next one will be Nov. 25 at Indianapolis Replica Nicholas Scott Jersey , with Tannehill hoping to return from his throwing shoulder injury, although that may be a long shot.Only two of the six remaining games are against teams with winning records. So it's not impossible for Miami to actually make the playoffs for only the third time in the past 17 seasons."There are certain teams that have kind of separated themselves from the rest of the pack," Gase said. "But right now, the only thing that's really been eliminated for us is an undefeated season. Everything else is on the table. Other teams are having a lot of the same issues we are, and it's really who can pull it together these last six games and find a way to get in."A bye week may not be enough time to resolve the Dolphins' many issues, however. That could take an offseason or three.For starters, the Dolphins are on pace to allow the most yards in franchise history. Their run defense ranks last in the league and seems to be getting worse, with 174 yards allowed per game and 5.9 per carry over the past five weeks. Defensive dysfunction is such that two-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones took himself out of a game because he was unhappy with a plan to rotate personnel.And then there's the offense, which has gone nine quarters without a touchdown. In the past three games receiver Danny Amendola has thrown for more scores (one) than quarterback Brock Osweiler (none)."This football team deserves touchdowns," Osweiler said.Osweiler has been critical of his play as Tannehill's replacement, and he's not alone. But bad luck has been an offensive culprit, too. The Dolphins lost their most dynamic player, receiver Albert Wilson, and two starting offensive linemen to season-ending injuries Stitched Nicholas Scott Jersey , and three other injured linemen sat out last week's loss at Green Bay.Bad health is less of an excuse on defense, where Gase's decision to jettison tackles Ndamukong Suh and Jordan Phillips left holes that haven't been filled. Yawning run gaps and blown coverage are staples, calling into question the future of second-year coordinator Matt Burke.That's a topic for the offseason, along with the future of Tannehill. First the Dolphins will try to summon a late-season surge, which would be something new.Over the past decade, their record in December is 22-22. Not the wintry weather nor the Denver Broncos' spongy defense could slow down Todd Gurley .The Rams running back rumbled for a career-high 208 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries and Los Angeles celebrated defensive coordinator Wade Phillips' homecoming Sunday with a 23-20 win over the reeling Denver Broncos."I wouldn't be able to do it without those guys up front," said Gurley, whose previous high was 159 yards at Green Bay in 2015. "It was kind of easy for me, honestly, because those guys did such a great job."And Denver's defense succumbed again.A week after allowing 323 yards rushing in a loss to the Jets, including 219 by Isaiah Crowell, the Broncos were gashed for 270 yards on the ground."We knew we were going to be a little bit leaky in the run today because the pass was our focus," Von Miller said. "But 270 yards is just, you know Nicholas Scott Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , ridiculous.""We didn't tackle well. We didn't fit well," Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. "That's two weeks in a row 鈥?unacceptable."The Rams, who had surrendered 31 points in back-to-back games, improved to 6-0 in sending the Broncos (2-4) to their fourth straight loss.The Broncos pulled to 23-20 on Case Keenum's 1-yard dart to Demaryius Thomas with 1:22 remaining, but Rams receiver Robert Woods knocked Brandon McManus' onside kick out of bounds, and the Rams ran out the clock with Keenum's one-time understudy Jared Goff (14 of 28 for 201 yards on his 24th birthday) twice taking a knee.Phillips was the Broncos' beloved bandmaster when they were celebrating their Super Bowl 50 triumph, but his contract wasn't renewed after the 2016 season and he joined Sean McVay in sunny Southern California.After an overnight snowstorm, the game-time temperature of 25 degrees marked the second-coldest in Denver prior to November in franchise history.The cold did nothing to slow down Gurley, who scored his 10th and 11th touchdowns of the season.One was on a 10-yard run on fourth down that gave the Rams a 13-3 halftime lead, the other, a 1-yard run that made it 20-3.COSTLY FOULGurley's first score came after a boneheaded move by Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who thought he had a 44-yard TD catch and jabbed a finger in cornerback Troy Hill's face, drawing a taunting foul.Upon review, Sanders was ruled down at the 1 Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , and the unsportsmanlike 15-yard penalty pushed the Broncos back to the 16.Instead of an extra point to give Denver a 7-6 lead, McManus ended up kicking a 28-yard field goal.Sanders, who had a 22-yard TD catch in the second half, blamed himself for the loss."Me, honestly, I feel like the league is getting soft," Sanders said. "I'm having fun. I didn't do anything crazy to the guy besides say, 'Hey, I got you on that play.' I pointed my finger at him. And they threw the flag."He said he's done that his whole career."It was a great throw by Case. I came down with it. Emotions are high. It's not like I walked up to him and head-butted him or something," Sanders said. "But it cost my team. We lost by three points. I feel like we could have easily punched that ball in and gotten four (more). I guess this loss is on me."STILL THE SAMEJoseph promised changes this week but those alterations were either cosmetic or schematic 鈥?and, ultimately, fruitless.Max Garcia replaced right guard Connor McGovern, but McGovern rotated back in and Garcia moved over when left guard Ronald Leary (ankle) got hurt in the third quarter.If the Broncos had better options, scuffling cornerback Bradley Roby 鈥?who again gave up big plays 鈥?and left tackle Garett Bolles 鈥?who was flagged for his NFL-high sixth holding call Sunday 鈥?also might have been benched.Bolles and Garcia had holding calls that pushed Denver out of scoring range.Roby took over Aqib Talib's starting spot when the Broncos traded Talib to the Rams in the spring. Talib is sidelined by an ankle injury.Still Nicholas Scott Jersey nfl draft , Talib made the trip with his teammates, walking with a boot on his left foot and a crutch under his right arm and was on the sideline during warmups.SACK ATTACKMiller snapped a three-week sackless streak with 1 1-2 sacks and rookie Bradley Chubb had three sacks."It's good that I get to the quarterback three times, but it's not good enough," Chubb said.QUICK FIX?The Broncos have a short week before going to Arizona on Thursday."So, we can't get caught up on this game, as much as I want to," Miller said. "I hate losing more than I love winning. ... The only good thing about this is we're back in the lab tomorrow and we've got a game on Thursday."INJURIESRams WR Cooper Kupp was carted off the field after wrenching his left knee when Broncos S Darian Stewart horse-collared him on the Broncos sideline after a 12-yard jet sweep in the second quarter, but he made a surprising return in the second half. OLB Matt Longacre (back) and LT Andrew Whitworth (possible concussion) also left the game.Broncos S Dymonte Thomas (chest) and Leary got hurt and didn't return.UP NEXT:Rams: Wrap up three-game road swing with a visit to San Francisco.Broncos: Have a short week to get ready for a game at Arizona on Thursday night.
