A lot of people around the NFL are talking about whether the Miami Dolphins are Super Bowl contenders, including the team themselves, especially after adding star pass rusher Bradley Chubb at the trade deadline. The Dolphins got off to a hot start with Tua Tagovailoa leading them to three wins to kick off the season before the quarterback went down with two scary head injuries.
Tua has since returned to play, and Miami has not lost a game that he's played from start to finish.
The Dolphins are 5-3, tied with the New York Jets (who they lost two when Tua was out) and behind the 6-1 Buffalo Bills.
The AFC East is not easy with the powerhouse Bills and the surprising Jets, but it is far from a reach to say the Dolphins could make a playoff run. And that optimism grew with the addition of Chubb and veteran running back Jeff Wilson Jr. at the trade deadline, after adding star receiver Tyreek Hill in the offseason.
