- January 10, 2017

They'll anchor the Dolphins' front four Sunday and try to apply the sort of pressure on Roethlisberger that helped Miami beat Pittsburgh in Week 6. That gives you an idea about the playoff drought the Dolphins have suffered through. Instead of just wanting the season to get over, the Dolphins had a shot.
