They won the last 6 games of the season and the media is all over themselves for the Miami
Dolphins. Is this team really that great? Many analysts seem to think so. The Dolphins finished
out the 2005 campaign by rattling off six straight wins against the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo
Bills, San Diego Chargers, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots. Could
this be the year that Miami returns to glory? Is their schedule soft enough to yield an easy 10
wins and take the NFC East?

The NFC East has been owned by the New England Patriots for a good while now. The Miami
Dolphins want to change all that. Last season, thanks to their last season push, they finished with
a 9-7 record. This year, they are hoping to take the next step and get into the AFC playoffs. Their
key additions include: Daunte Culpepper, Andre Goodman, Sedrick Hodge, Will Allen, Fred
Beasley, Kelly Campbell, Justin Peelle, L.J. Shelton, Renaldo Hill, Deke Cooper and Mike

Sam Madison to the Giants, Bryan Gilmore to the 49ers, Reggie Howard to Carolina, Matt Turk

New England. Their schedule could be a little challenging this season. Heres the breakdown.

Week Two: Buffalo Bills
Week Three: Tennessee Titans

Week Five: @ New England Patriots
Week Six: @ New York Jets
Week Seven: Green Bay Packers
Week Eight: Bye
Week Nine: @ Chicago Bears
Week Ten: Kansas City Chiefs
Week Eleven: Minnesota Vikings
Week Twelve: @ Detroit Lions
Week Thirteen: Jacksonville Jaguars
Week Fourteen: New England Patriots
Week Fifteen: @ Buffalo Bills
Week Sixteen: New York Jets
Week Seventeen: @ Indianapolis

The Dolphins season opens up pretty soft. The first big challenge will be the Steelers, but they
will be without their starting QB Big Ben. Presumably, their next tough game doesn't come until
week five against the Patriots. However, the Bills might pose a challenge. They always play the
Dolphins tough, so you can't write them off just yet. It will be tough for this team to put together
win streaks of more than a couple games. Their schedule is mixed up well. They could be in
trouble if they are one game out going into the last game at Indy, unless the Colts
