Miami morning take: Dolphins playoff run?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday from around the Web:

Morning take: Let's not put the cart before the horse. Miami must first win to get in. It’s premature to think about winning playoff games.

Morning take: Miami deserves to be favored, even on the road. The Bills will be starting backup quarterback Thad Lewis, who will look to beat the Dolphins for the second time this season.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes about receiver Mike Wallace’s increased productivity.

Morning take: Wallace is hitting his stride at the right time. The chemistry between Wallace and quarterback Ryan Tannehill is improving.

  • Hall of Fame coach Don Shula tells the team website he’s a fan of Dolphins coach Joe Philbin.

Morning take: Philbin still has something to prove in Miami, as evidenced by his 15-15 record. But his job this year through the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying scandal definitely deserves recognition.
