Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Matchup

Mike Tomlin chose his words carefully. Partly out of habit. Partly out of respect.

Asked why the winless Miami Dolphins (0-6) have taken steps toward competency after a horrific start heading into Monday night’s visit to Pittsburgh (2-4) – their last two losses have come by a combined 11 points – the Steelers coach played it down the middle.

”They are a professional football outfit,” Tomlin said.

One that is starting to look like one – at least just a little – on defense. So forgive Tomlin if he views Miami as something more than a mere speed bump for his own banged-up team, which has a very slim window to resurrect its season. Yes, the Dolphins are rebuilding under first-year coach Brian Flores. Yes, they haven’t won a game in over 300 days. Yet there’s a freedom amid the misery. With no expectations, Flores can experiment as he pleases. He can order a fake field goal or an onside kick, as he’s done in each of the last two games, and if it doesn’t work, so what?

”What do you have to lose, right? What do we have to lose at this point?” Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. ”I think that’s part of the mentality and part of the mentality is just trying to get that to trickle down and rub off on everyone else, that aggression.”
