Do you wish to dream?

Dream of the Miami Dolphins factoring the ultimate six weeks of this season and possibly even sneaking into the playoff dialog. Yeah, loopy proper, particularly when one considers the Dolphins began this season 1-7.

But not so loopy when you think about the Dolphins beat the New York Jets on Sunday, 24-17, to earn their third consecutive victory.

And not loopy when you think about the remainder of the NFL is like a pineapple cake. It’s the wrong way up.

Just have a look at what occurred Sunday afternoon:

The Buffalo Bills misplaced to the Indianapolis Colts and fell out of first place in the AFC East. The Bills are fighting two losses in three weeks.

Yeah, the New England Patriots are main the AFC East proper now.

Anyway …

The Tennessee Titans misplaced to the Houston Texans.

The Carolina Panthers misplaced to the Washington Football Team.

The New Orleans Saints misplaced to the Philadelphia Eagles.

What’s the level?

The Dolphins have six video games remaining of their 2021 schedule and 4 of their opponents misplaced on Sunday, whereas the New York Giants play Monday evening.

And the different staff? That’s the Patriots.

Miami beat them in the regular-season opener.

The level is the Dolphins are out of the blue sizzling and have six video games remaining in opposition to opponents who’re both wanting extra beatable by the day or which Miami has already overwhelmed as soon as.

It isn’t out of the realm of chance the Dolphins go into their season-finale in opposition to New England with a wildcard playoff spot on the line.

Yes, a lot of stuff must occur. The Dolphins must get to .500 first. That means beating Carolina and the Giants at house the subsequent two weeks, recovering after a bye, and coming again in opposition to the Jets once more.

That doesn’t appear unattainable.

It’s the ultimate two video games in opposition to Tennessee and New England that will likely be the Mount Everest climb to relevance.

But if the Dolphins proceed to enhance as they have been in current weeks, it’s doable.

“I think we’re just starting to click,” working again Myles Gaskin stated. 

If the protection continues to get after quarterbacks with a stress protection that gambles and normally wins — with a lengthy TD move exception in opposition to the Jets Sunday — and the offense continues to get good play from Tua Tagovailoa, it could occur.

The truth is that if the Dolphins can rating 24 factors per sport as they did Sunday, what do you suppose that may do for the confidence of MIami defenders that they can come away with victories? 

“Very confident,” cornerback Xavien Howard stated. “I feel like all three phases, we got to play well. Defense doing their thing, offense, everybody making plays in all three phases of the ball. I feel like if we have the confidence then it’ll show, that we’re winning.”

Crazy?

Dreaming?

Yes.

Possible?

Yes.

Especially should you think about Tagovailoa simply delivered maybe his greatest sport of the season.

Tagovailoa accomplished 27 of 33 passes for 273 yards with 2 TD passes and 1 interception.

He threw a 65-yard landing move to Mack Hollins that’s the longest TD completion of his NFL profession and the longest play of the season for the Dolphins.

And when the sport was tied at 14 in the fourth quarter, Tagovailoa engineered a 75 yard landing drive by which he accomplished 8 of 8 move makes an attempt for 68 yards, together with the culminating 5 yard rating.

That’s uplifting news for the Dolphins. All of it.
