DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins had a record of 3-3, and then 4-4, and then 5-5. Each time they lost the next game.

Now they're 6-6, with yet another chance to climb above .500 when they play Sunday at Pittsburgh (5-7).

The Dolphins will attempt to build on their best performance of the year, a 23-3 road victory Sunday against the New York Jets. The Dolphins are now they're tied with Baltimore for the sixth-best record in the race for the AFC's six playoff berths.

Despite an early season four-game losing streak, followed by a bullying scandal that threatened to sabotage the season, the Dolphins still have a shot at their first playoff berth since 2008. But to achieve it, Miami can't continue its recent pattern of lose-win-lose-win-lose-win.
