Morning take: Pressure on Ryan Tannehill

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

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins' playoff hopes rest on quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the offensive line.

  • Morning take: The Dolphins are hard to beat when Tannehill plays well. But he needs consistent pass protection, and Miami's makeshift offensive line is a big reason for concern.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes the Dolphins have re-signed cornerback Jalil Brown.

  • Morning take: Miami's secondary depth took a hit with backup cornerback Will Davis tearing his ACL and going on injured reserve. Brown spent time with the team in training camp and knows the defense.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post writes the Dolphins' magic number could be 10 wins.

  • Morning take: They would have to go 4-2 down the stretch, which is challenging but possible. Miami has the talent but needs to work on being consistent in certain areas.

  • Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network writes Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas will have an MRI on his ankle Monday.

  • Morning take: Why is this important? The Dolphins will face the Broncos next week and Denver got banged up in Sunday’s loss to the St. Louis Rams.
