Dolphins Need Just Two Wins To Make Playoffs
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) One play from defeat each of the past two weeks, the Miami Dolphins are now two wins from their first playoff berth since 2008.
The Dolphins (8-6) control their own destiny and will earn the AFC's sixth and final wild-card spot if they win Sunday at Buffalo and beat the New York Jets at home in the regular-season finale.
Miami managed a second consecutive narrow escape Sunday, intercepting Tom Brady's pass in the end zone with 2 seconds left to beat AFC East leader New England 24-20. The previous week, the Dolphins won at Pittsburgh 34-28 when the Steelers' Antonio Brown barely stepped out of bounds before reaching the end zone on a wild final play.
With Sunday's victory, the Dolphins ended a streak of four consecutive losing seasons.
