Miami morning take: Dolphins over Pats?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the web:

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins are not focusing on the past against the New England Patriots.

Morning take: New England has beaten Miami seven straight times. This is the dragon the Dolphins have tried to slay for quite some time.

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes about the turnaround for Dolphins tailback Daniel Thomas.

Morning take: Thomas has been mostly a disappointment since becoming a second-round pick in 2011. But he showed a lot of guts to return from an ankle injury to rush for 105 yards.

  • Andy Kent of the Dolphins team site writes about Miami’s two defensive ends: Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon.

Morning take: They have combined for 19 sacks this season. Vernon’s improvement makes it difficult for teams to only key on Wake, who made the Pro Bowl last year.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post catches up with Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks, who had an “incident” against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Morning take: Starks had his privates grabbed in the bottom of the pile, but no flag was thrown. Starks said he has been ribbed by teammates about it.
