The Dolphins looked like they were out of it with seven seconds left in the game last week. But as we know http://www.thedolphinsfootball.....-authentic , the Miami Miracle happened and the Dolphins are looking to carry all that momentum over to this game. The Vikings on the other hand have been struggling the past couple of weeks after losses to the Patriots and Seahawks. Both of those games were on the road but they will be on their home turf today.You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.Miami Dolphins: 5 players to watch vs. Vikings (Week 15) - Sports - The Palm Beach Post - West Palm Beach, FLThe Dolphins travel to Minneapolis to face the Vikings in a game that will help determine Miami’s potential playoff future. Here are five players to keep an eye on Sunday: DB Minkah FitzpatrickMiami’s first-round draft pick has looked so polished most of the season it’s easy to forget he’s a rookie. But he didn’t have his best game against Julian Edelman and the Patriots last weekend. We haven’t seen Fitzpatrick have two tough games in a row, soDolphins at VikingsMiami Dolphins at Minnesota Vikings Week 15 Injury Report: Xavien Howard Doubtful - The PhinsiderMiami’s star cornerback is set to miss another week of action.Dolphins Offensive LineWhen they go high, they go down vs. Miami Dolphins' pulling tackle Ja'Wuan James - Sports - The Palm Beach Post - West Palm Beach, FLDAVIE — Crunch time for the Dolphins didn’t just happen on the last play against the Patriots. One play before Brandon Bolden scored his second touchdown against his former team, there was crunch time of a different sort, courtesy of right tackle Ja’Wuan James.It was a second-and-10 play from the New England 17 when Ryan Tannehill took the snap and James and guard Jesse Davis made a beeline around left end — essential since they had to arrive before ballcarrierDolphins 2018 SeasonDevoid of divas and drama queens, Miami Dolphins believe they can make playoffsDAVIE — Darren Rizzi is the associate head coach of the Miami Dolphins and he's been with the organization since 2009 and he's seen a lot.He's seen a lot of coaches, a lot of players, and yes, too many losses and not enough playoff wins.Surely Rizzi has never seen anything like the Miami Miracle. Few of us have. But Rizzi is an unfailingly candid guy.And so here are the Dolphins, 7-6, somehow still alive in the AFC playoff picture http://www.authenticsmiamidolp.....ore-jersey , likely needing another upset win Sunday at Minnesota toPhinsider News You May Have MissedMiami Dolphins News 12/15/18: Previewing Sunday’s Game Against The Vikings - The PhinsiderWelcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.Phinsider Mailbag Week 15 Requests and Week 14 answers - The PhinsiderThe Phinsider Mailbag and I have been having a disagreement lately, especially when it comes to me having the time (or remembering) to post it. Today, I am going to try to make up for some of that....Miami Dolphins Film Room: Laremy Tunsil Week 2 vs. New York Jets In no particular order...please provide your analysis of these GIF’s down in the Comments Section!(And let me address the elephant in the room: I did tape on Josh Sitton last week and he’s out for the year. If anything should happen to Laremy Tunsil in this game, of the long-term variety, you may punch me in the face unannounced, and I will do tape of Tom Brady and other AFC East foes in the hopes of spreading the curse to them as soon as humanly possible.)The TapeKenyan Drake slices inside for the 1st touchdown scored by the Miami Dolphins offense. But wait...THERE’S MORE!Thanks to jonman’s request, I put together a couple GIF’s in slow motion, Drake’s touchdown being one of them. There could be a healthy debate on whether this is zone or man blocking because it could’ve worked either way, but my guess is that this was a designed zone right play: one of the telltale signs of zone blocking is that the running back takes a short, 45-degree angle step to align hips and shoulders, which is what happens here in my opinion. #99 (Steve McLendon) of the New York Jets gets upfield enough, Drake sees the cutback and the rest is history.Oh, I almost forgot to mention that the cutback lane opened with Laremy Tunsil having the athleticism to get to Darron Lee Youth Reshad Jones Jersey , and once he had his paws on the Mike linebacker, Lee wasn’t going anywhere but where he wanted. Jets run stunts on both sides of the line and the left side didn’t do so hot. I’m not sure why Tunsil drifted so far outside to help Drake who actually had a hell of a block, but Tunsil looked confused and Ted Larsen got caught out of position as well. You don’t like to see Ryan Tannehill take those kinds of hits. In my heart of hearts, as much as I don’t like people getting hurt, Tunsil probably should have demolished #54. He doesn’t, and #54 makes the tackle. Nothing remarkable about the block by Tunsil, but notice the unbalanced offensive line. That’s AJ Derby playing RT and Ja’Wuan James and Tunsil lined up next to each other on the left side, with Tunsil lined up as a TE. Textbook. Quick, choppy feet. Balanced when engaged, digs his heels in and anchors. Certainly not an Earth-shattering block, but adequate enough to give Drake the crease he needs to bounce outside and pick up additional yardage. The touchdown to AJ Derby and Tunsil gets pushed back just a bit, but maintains balance, anchors, responds to a spin move perfectly Youth Mike Gesicki Jersey , and gives Ryan Tannehill enough time to deliver the strike. Impressive pocket overall, damn near perfect. Tannehill keeps active feet, but he really just takes one step to his right and darts it. The Oakland Raiders, in my opinion, are vulnerable in the interior of the line (as well as on the edge, but that’s a different story). Tunsil and Ted Larsen team up briefly and Frank Gore gets some tough yards later in the game.Jets do a stunt on Tunsil’s side. Aside from the one time up above, Tunsil handled stunts quite effectively. Larsen and Tunsil do their job well, Kilgore either gets caught up in bear hugging McLendon or #99 held Kilgore on this play. Tunsil does his job here on another stunt. Larsen gets over-extended and it gives enough of a gap for Brandon Copeland to sneak in and get leverage to sack Tannehill. ConclusionAbsolutely solid tape. Hiccups here and there, but the run blocking is demonstrably better than 2017 thus far, and the pass blocking heads towards the elite category. I see no reason to expect anything less than top half of the league tackle play from Laremy Tunsil, trending towards the top 10 and beyond as more experience shapes him.
