2. Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins have emerged as a legitimate contender over the last few weeks.
Tua Tagovailoa is 3-0 as a starter, with 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. Brian Flores’ defense is buzzing, scoring defensive touchdowns in 2 in their last 3 games. This of course goes well with their 15 turnovers, which is the third best in the league, and the team ranks sixth lowest in points per drive allowed.
Further, they are allowing the fifth fewest point scored, allowing the sixth fewest passing touchdowns, and allowing the third lowest scoring percentage. Their defense is shutting teams down and almost single-handedly winning games for them.
If they have a weakness, it is their offense, which is pretty mediocre right now, but that could be fixed as the season progresses and the team gets more time to gel as an offense behind Tua.
