Miami morning take: Dolphins' depth

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

  • Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel reports the Dolphins’ depth is putting the team in position for the playoffs.

Morning take: Miami is getting surprise contributions on both sides of the ball. The backups in the secondary proved to be key with big plays Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Morning take: Win and they’re in. That’s the simplest formula for Miami. But the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets stand in the Dolphins’ way.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes how the Dolphins can clinch a playoff spot this weekend.

Morning take: Miami can get into the playoffs with a win over Buffalo and losses by both the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. That’s a lot of help, but it’s possible.

Morning take: Incognito will stay away from the team for the rest of the season, with pay, until the investigation is complete. The Dolphins do not need a huge distraction in the final two games.
