Miami Dolphins (3-4)
What they’ve done well: The unconventional. Other teams try the Wildcat offense, but it’s the Dolphins who do it best with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown. They are also a resourceful crew who can get badly outplayed badly -- like in Week 8 against the Jets -- but can still win thanks to special teams play. Also key? They also are converting 50.5 percent of their third-down attempts, second in the league.
Needs improvement: Tony Sparano’s coaching gaffes are getting laughable. His timeout at the end of the first half in Week 7 gave the Saints the chance to score on Drew Brees’ 1-yard run. Otherwise the clock would have run out. He followed that up by going for a 2-point conversion with his team up by 11 against the Jets, and failing. Had the Dolphins kicked the extra point, the Jets would have needed two touchdowns to beat them. Instead, a touchdown, 2-point conversion and a field goal would have tied it up. The Jets couldn’t execute, but Sparano’s blunder gave them new life.
