Are the Dolphins still a top contender in the AFC?

As the Miami Dolphins started on a 3-0 start, they’ve lost two straight, they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Prime time and they just got blown out by the New York Jets.

The Miami Dolphins started off hot beating the Super Bowl favorites the Buffalo Bills, and they came back 28 points to beat the Baltimore Ravens. Then the Dolphins started having injury problems, Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa got a roughing-the-passer call against the Buffalo Bills. He got up and started to stumble, so he went back to the locker room and returned at halftime, so the NFL went under investigation for the injury. He played in the Dolphins v Bengals prime time game and he got slammed down on the ground and go carted off the field.

They’ve also been dealing with even more injuries: WR Tyreek Hill has a quad injury, WR Jaylen Waddle has a groin injury, and CB Xavien Howard has been dealing with a groin injury since Week 3. T Terron Armstead has been dealing with a toe injury since Week 3, also.

In Week 5, the Dolphins play the Minnesota Vikings and rookie Skylar Thompson will get his first ever start at quarterback because Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater are dealing with concussion problems.
