Latest win helps Dolphins' playoff chances

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Looking for their first playoff berth since 2008, the Miami Dolphins are getting warmer.

A win in the snow at Pittsburgh helped their chances, and now the Dolphins are back in balmy South Florida preparing to play at home Sunday against AFC East leader New England.

A loss wouldn't doom the Dolphins (7-6). But they're tied with Baltimore in the race for the AFC's sixth and final wild-card berth, which means even a sweep of the final three games might not be enough to make the postseason.

After facing the Patriots, they'll return north to play Buffalo on Dec. 22, then conclude the regular season at home against the New York Jets on Dec. 29.
