Big plays salvage rough showing for Dolphins DST
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins defense came up with a few big plays, but struggled overall in a  37-35 win over the Vikings in Week 16.

The Dolphins finished the game with 8 Fantasy points, entirely on the strength of one turnover and four sacks. They struggled otherwise, allowing 377 yards of total offense to the Vikings, though they came up with a blocked punt and a safety late to win it.

The Dolphins DST unit now failed to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring in each of the last three games, heading into Week 17 against the Jets.

Dolphins' defensive struggles continue
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins defense has regressed badly in recent weeks, a trend that continued in a 41-13 loss to the Patriots in Week 15.

The Patriots racked up 395 yards of offense on the Dolphins, and did much of their damage in a 24-point third quarter. The Dolphins forced one turnover in the game, but failed to sack Tom Brady en route to just 2 Fantasy points.

The Dolphins DST unit has now scored in single digits in three of the last four games. Though they finish the season with solid matchups against the Vikings and Jets in Weeks 16 and 17, it's tough to rely on either player at this point.

Dolphins fade in second half of loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins' defense started out strong in Week 14, but came apart late in a 28-13 loss to the Ravens.  

The Dolphins held the Ravens to one first-half touchdown, which came in the final seconds of the second period. They couldn't keep their strong start up in the second half, however, as the Ravens racked up three touchdowns, to go with 447 yards of total offense overall.

The Dolphins recorded just one turnover and one sack in the game, and end up with just 3 Fantasy points for the second time in three weeks. Things won't get any easier in Week 15, with the Patriots coming up on the schedule.

Dolphins buckle down in second half to win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins defense had troubled slowing the Jets running game down in Week 13, but stepped up when needed in a 16-13 win.

The Jets racked up 277 yards on the ground Monday, though much of that came in the first half. The Jets managed to score just one field goal in the second half, while the Dolphins recorded one turnover -- an interception late the clinch the game -- and sacked Jets quarterback Geno Smith twice.

The Dolphins have had a lot of trouble stopping the run of late, allowing 478 yards over their last two games. They still came away with 10 Fantasy points in Week 13, but could have trouble doing so again in Week 14, with a tough matchup against the Ravens on the way.

Dolphins DST dominates Chargers in shutout
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins defense came up with their finest performance of the season in Week 9, a 37-0 shellacking of the Chargers.

The Dolphins' defense has now put together three strong performances in a row, totaling 71 Fantasy points over the last three games. They will try to keep it up in Week 10 with the Lions on the schedule.
