07:14 AM ET 10.30 | Though Miami jumped out to a 3-0 start, October has not been kind to the Dolphins, who are now 3-4. Perhaps predictably, the recent struggles have led to some internal questions about the team's direction. NFL Media's Jeff Darlington reported Tuesday that "players are starting to wonder about this offensive game plan." ... "Let me not overstate this: The locker room is still together," Darlington explained on NFL Network's "Around The League Live." "There's still a good vibe in there. I talked to several players today and they still feel like they can get this season back on track. However, there is some question of what offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is starting to do and it really started to come to a head after Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Patriots."

Well, what's the record of the teams they beat versus those they lost to? Maybe Miami is just a .500 or so team this year.

I don't think they will be getting back on track this week either against Cincy.

The Phins took off fast ..... Then turned back into the Phins.

Cincy is also a spotty team. Dalton has his cool streaks.

Definitely spotty, but at this point I would put them right behind Kansas City for the #2 AFC team.

The beat the Browns, the Colts and the Falcons. Then they lost to the Saints, Ravens, Bills and Pats.

So, they've beaten good teams and bad teams, and lost to good teams and bad teams. Given that they've lost 4 in a row, they seem to be in a death spiral at this point.

KC is another team that has beaten mostly weak opponents. Not as many pushovers in the second half of their season. Let's see their record after they play the Broncos 2 times in 3 weeks.

Beating up on NFC East teams is nothing to brag about, like the AFC West has done.

With the Pats in Foxboro in between.

It's the Bronkeys that play NE in that in-between week.

it is for 3 of the teams in the NFC East.

Whatever they're going to do, they'd better do it now.

And 3 teams in the AFC South and AFC North. There are IMO no more than 10 above average teams in all of the NFL.

Poor Sherman. Tannehill the turnover machine will get him fired twice...

The ONLY game this week with both teams having a winning record is GB vs Chicago.....and we all know that from here on out the bears are less than that....

11 teams above .500, 2 even and 19 with losing records.
