Dolphins Have Shot at 3-game Win Streak

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Despite all their losing, the Miami Dolphins have stayed loose. There’s laughter in the locker room, and finger-pointing has been kept to a minimum, a significant achievement for a team that started the season 0-7.

By beating Washington 20-9 Sunday, the Dolphins won their second game in a row and ended a streak of seven consecutive home losses. This week they’re favored against Buffalo, with a shot at their first three-game winning streak since 2008.

There were times of tension during the skid, including a recent spat between receiver Brandon Marshall and cornerback Vontae Davis regarding the latter’s work ethic. But players remained united in their support of coach Tony Sparano, and he said the team’s positive attitude made this month’s turnaround possible.
