Miami Dolphins: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Miami Dolphins joined the American professional football league in 1966. Initially, they played as part of the AFL before the two big leagues merged five years later. Following the merger, the Miami Dolphins featured in the AFC East Division, which is where they remain even today. 

The 1970 move coincided with the appointment of Head Coach Don Shula, who remained with the franchise for the next 25 years. 

Under Shula’s tutelage, the Miami Dolphins cobbled together the NFL’s first, and to date, the only perfect season in 1972

Following Shula’s departure, the team’s stock dwindled from the lofty heights that were synonymous with them. Despite a decline, the Dolphins are the only team to deny Tom Brady’s New England Patriots the divisional title. They achieved the honor in 2008

In 2019, under Head Coach Brian Flores, the franchise finished rock bottom in the AFC East with a 5-11 record. 

Despite their showing, they could not secure the top draft pick for the fourth time in franchise history.

The Miami Dolphins held the top-draft pick three times. The first occasion was in the 1966 AFL draft where they drafted Illinois’ Running Back, Jim Grabowski. However, he opted to ply his trade in the NFL.

The second top-draft pick headed to Miami 42 years later in the 2008 NFL season. Here they added Michigan’s Offensive Tackle, Jake Long, to their roster.  

Owner

Joe Robbie served as the original owner and founder of the team till 1990. Currently, the team owner is Stephen M. Ross. He purchased a majority of the franchise during the 2009 NFL season. At the time, he owned 95% of the team. 

Achievements

Miami Dolphins have won the divisional championship on 13 occasions. In five of those seasons, the franchise claimed the conference title. Furthermore, they hold a 2-3 Super Bowl record and are one of just eight teams to win the season-ending game in consecutive seasons. 

Two players have won the NFL MVP award as part of the Miami Dolphins. They are Safety Jake Scott for the 1973 NFL season and Running Back Larry Csonka for the 1974 NFL season.

Logo

The Miami Dolphins made their first logo with a dolphin. In the original versions of the logo, a helmet-clad dolphin was seen leaping out of the water. It was framed with the sun at its back. 

The logo embraced Miami’s coastline and thriving aquatic life. Over the years, the franchise retained the core elements with a few tweaks. 

In 1997, the Miami Dolphins made the dolphin prominent and focused on sharper rays of the sun. 

Ahead of their forty-eighth season, the Miami Dolphins changed things around. They introduced a new logo. Here the dolphin was seen without a helmet and was swimming in preparation to leap out of the water. 

Ahead of the 2018 NFL season, the franchise tweaked their logo yet again. The navy blue infusion lasted just five seasons, while the designers darkened the color of the sun.
