Morning take: Can Dolphins protect home?

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

Morning take: The Dolphins are a .500 team at home this year, which is a disappointment. It will be key for the Dolphins to beat the New England Patriots and New York Jets in Miami to push for the playoffs.

  • Mike Reiss and Tedy Bruschi of ESPNBoston.com write how the Patriots have been here before.

Morning take: The Patriots have a chance to clinch another AFC East title with a win over Miami. It’s just a matter of time, but the sooner the better for New England.

Morning take: Wilson’s versatility has come in handy. He’s played nickel corner and safety this year, in addition to making plays on special teams.

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes the Dolphins’ Charles Clay is playing like an elite tight end.

Morning take: Elite is a strong word that I do not often use. Clay has played well and is consistent. He is arguably the most improved player on the team this year.
