21. Miami Dolphins
6-7 for one team could feel vastly different than 6-7 for another. Take the Miami Dolphins as an example. They entered Week 14 on a bye with that exact record but there’s a ton of hope surrounding them thanks to the impressive role they have been on.
Miami started out with a record of 1-7 and was in line for the No. 1 overall pick. They were also the butt of many jokes with everyone coming after quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, head coach Brian Flores, and whoever else they could.
Undeterred, the Dolphins stayed the course and have now won five games in a row to improve to 6-7. They now have a week off as they prepare for a couple more games that feel very winnable. Miami hosts the New York Jets in Week 15 followed by a road game against the New Orleans Saints. They finally play a winning team in Week 17 as they head to Tennessee, but they’re a team that’s been struggling so that could go either way.
Week 18 is a home game against the New England Patriots who might be trying to wrap up the AFC East. That could be quite the game as well with Miami possibly looking to end the season with a winning record while facing the top team in their division.
