Greetings from Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The weather has broken here on the First Coast, allowing the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars to stretch on the field without getting soaked.

The sun has popped out of the clouds and the temperature is in the upper 70s. Scattered thunder showers are in the forecast, but they aren't expected to arrive until the game is over.

Sunday's game has serious playoff implications. The Jaguars are 7-5 and are in the final wild-card slot. But the Dolphins are one of three 6-6 teams, and a victory could propel them deep into the mix with three games to play.

The Dolphins also still have an outside shot at the division title. They're a game behind the New England Patriots, who have an easier remaining schedule but are having as much success on the field as Rob Petrie had with ottomans.

The most notable news from the inactive list is that top Jaguars receiver Mike Sims-Walker isn't on it. He was listed as doubtful with calf and knee injuries.
