Fins defense still struggling: How fortunate are the Dolphins to have a 3-2 record heading into their bye? Extremely. Their record belies what is really happening on the gridiron. Believe it or not, Miami has been outgained in yardage in all five games this season, and that isn’t the best recipe for long-term success.
