      The Miami Dolphins have a path to the playoffs in 2018 [url=][/url] , but they need some help to get there. Over the final two weeks of the season, they need some specific results to happen. This week, the games that are considered get narrowed way down. We are not worried about a lot of the strength of schedule/victory tie breaks anymore. We are just down to the teams that really impact the Dolphins.Washington Redskins at Tennessee Titans, 4:30pm SaturdayThe Dolphins either need all of the 8-6 teams to fall to 8-8 while Miami moves to 9-7 or they need the Titans to stay in contention to offset Indianapolis, who holds the head-to-head tiebreak on the Dolphins. Miami needs the Titans to lose at least once in the next two games, and since they play Indianapolis in Week 17 and may need to win that game so Indianapolis loses, a Titans loss here makes sense. Root for: Washington.Baltimore Ravens at Los Angeles Chargers, 8:20pm SaturdayLike the Titans, Miami needs the Ravens to lose at least once in the next two weeks. The Dolphins would beat the Ravens on a tiebreak scenario, based on AFC record. The Ravens face Cleveland in Week 17, which could be a game for the AFC North championship – a scenario that could mean Baltimore is not even a factor in the Wildcard race, but for right now, we will keep them as the runner-up in their division. Giving them a loss here is better for Miami. Root for: Los Angeles.New York Giants at Indianapolis Colts, 1pm SundayAnother team in the AFC Wildcard madness. Pretty simple one here. Miami needs the Colts to lose – and lose twice really. Root for: New YorkCincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns [url=][/url] , 1pm SundayThis game really does not impact Miami but it shows up because the Browns are still mathematically in the playoff hunt. They could finish as high as 8-7-1, which would put them half a game ahead of Miami if the Dolphins split their final two games. Just getting them out of the playoff picture is the better move. Root for: Cincinnati. Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots, 1pm SundayHere is the first fun scenario that adds to this week’s intrigue. The Patriots have not clinched the AFC East, with Miami having an outside shot at clinching the division. In fact, the Patriots could still miss the playoffs if a lot of things go the right way – or wrong way if you are a Patriots fan. If the Patriots lose in Week 16 and in Week 17, while Miami wins both weeks, the two teams tie at 9-7, with the Miami taking the AFC East based on division record. Of course we have to root for that scenario to happen. Root for: Buffalo.Pittsburgh Steelers at New Orleans Saints, 4:25pm SundayThe other fun scenario is, the Ravens (or Browns) could win the AFC North, with the Steelers suddenly hoping for a Wildcard position – and they have a tie on their record which makes them either a half-game ahead or a half-game behind when it comes to the final standings. There are ways the Ravens win the AFC North at 9-7, then the Dolphins win the Wildcard. This is like an insurance policy to help the Dolphins have multiple ways to get rid of the Ravens in the Wildcard mess. Root for: New Orleans.Jacksonville Jaguars at Miami Dolphins, 1pm SundayAnd the obvious game that matters in the Dolphins’ playoff standings. Root for: Miami.Games not consideredTampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys, 1pm SundayMinnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions, 1pm SundayGreen Bay Packers at New York Jets [url=]Youth Reshad Jones Jersey[/url] , 1pm SundayHouston Texans at Philadelphia Eagles, 1pm SundayAtlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers, 1pm SundayLos Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals, 4:05pm SundayChicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers, 4:05pm SundayKansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks, 8:20pm SundayDenver Broncos at Oakland Raiders, 8:20pm Sunday When the New York Jets run the ball Sunday, it will be a test of their blocking against the Miami Dolphins’ tackling to see who’s worse.Both have been bad lately.Miami (4-4) has given up 600 yards rushing in the past three games. A defensive decline, not an injury to quarterback Ryan Tannehill , is the biggest reason the Dolphins have lost four of their past five games.”We’ve got to be better,” safety Reshad Jones said. “But there’s no time to hit the panic button right now. We’ve got a lot of football left.”The Jets (3-5) have averaged 2.8 yards per carry in the past three games while totaling 235 yards. After running back Bilal Powell suffered a season-ending neck injury in Week 7, the ground game generated just 57 yards in last week’s loss at the Chicago Bears.”I didn’t think it was good at all,” coach Todd Bowles said. “They beat us up front, and they beat us to the punch.”So it looks like an even matchup: the resistible force against the moveable object.Here are things to know about the 106th meeting between two AFC East rivals sporting two-game losing streaks:TURF WARThe Dolphins are tied for 29th in the NFL in run defense. In the past three weeks, they’ve allowed 164 [url=]Youth Mike Gesicki Jersey[/url] , 248 and 188 yards on the ground, with big plays the biggest problem.”There is no secret. There is no magic pill,” five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake said. “Each player has a gap or a man or a zone. You can do it right for 42 plays, and then on play 43 you’re not there, and in this league they’ll find that hole. They’ll find that guy who’s not doing their thing that they’re supposed to be doing. And 80 yards later …”The Jets’ recent rushing woes come after they gashed Denver in Week 5 for 323 yards, second-most in franchise history. Isaiah Crowell had a team-record 219 in that game, but in the past three weeks he has totaled just 94 yards in 37 carries.The sputtering ground attack only increases the burden on rookie quarterback Sam Darnold .”We can’t be up and down,” Bowles said. “We’ve got to be consistent at it. If we want to throw the ball consistently, we’ve got to be able to run it consistently.”SUBSTITUTETannehill will miss his fourth game in a row because of an injury to his throwing shoulder. Replacement Brock Osweiler has a slightly better passer rating than Tannehill, with six touchdown throws and three interceptions in three games.Osweiler passed for 241 yards in last week’s 42-23 loss at Houston and said he’s trying to play so well he doesn’t go back to the bench.”I had a laundry list of things after the Houston game that I want to clean up,” he said. “It was really about one page of notes. We have a great coaching staff, and they took that page of notes and turned that into drills — things I didn’t do right in the game — in hopes that we can correct those mistakes and make sure that they never happen again.”CATCH, IF YOU CANThe Jets could be shorthanded again at receiver as Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa, Darnold’s top targets, are dealing with ankle injuries.Anderson missed the game at Chicago [url=]White Danny Amendola Jersey[/url] , and Enunwa has been sidelined the past two games. Without both, New York struggled to get the passing game going against the Bears. Rookie Deontay Burnett, a former teammate of Darnold’s at USC, led the Jets with four catches for 61 yards.”You hate to see Robby go down and Q go down, but that means someone’s got to step up,” Darnold said. “It was cool for him to be able to step up the way that he did.”FINDING THE END ZONERookie tight end Chris Herndon is making catching touchdown passes a weekly thing.The fourth-round draft pick out of the University of Miami has scored in each of the past three games, joining receiver Keyshawn Johnson (1996) and tight end Thurlow Cooper (1960) as the only rookies in franchise history to accomplish the feat.Herndon is also tied with Philadelphia’s Dallas Goedert for the most touchdowns among rookie NFL tight ends with three.DEJA VUThe Jets are in a familiar spot at the halfway point, sitting at 3-5 after eight games for the third consecutive year.They’re hoping to finish better than they have the last two years, when they ended up 5-11.AP Sports Writer Dennis Waszak in Florham Park, New Jersey, contributed to this report.Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: ://Steve_Wine
