Dolphins get extra day to bask in 3-0 record

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - As the Miami Dolphins prepare for a rare prime-time appearance next Monday night at New Orleans, the extra day between games will be welcome.

It gives the Dolphins a few additional hours to enjoy being 3-0, more time for an injury-depleted defense to mend, and another practice to address serious problems with pass protection.

The surprising Dolphins took another step toward their streak of 4 consecutive losing seasons by rallying past Atlanta 27-23 Sunday.

The Dolphins have won their first three games 12 other times, and none of those teams finished with a losing record. 9 of them made the playoffs, and Miami's fast start has stirred speculation about a run to the postseason.
