Dolphins' third-down offense continues to sputter

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

  • Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post writes the Dolphins are historically bad with their third-down offense.

Morning take: Miami’s 28 percent conversion rate will not cut it. That would set a new team record if the numbers don’t improve over the final six games.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel examines whether Ryan Tannehill is a franchise quarterback.

Morning take: In four seasons, Tannehill hasn’t shown enough to earn the “franchise” label. He struggles on third down and in the fourth quarter, and he doesn’t win enough games.

  • Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald writes Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi is gaining some intrigue.

Morning take: Ajayi has done well with limited carries, and his role should increase down the stretch. He’s running hard and has fresh legs.
