Dolphins still have shot at wild-card berth

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Reeling from their worst loss of the year, the Miami Dolphins can still make the playoffs. Whether they deserve to is open for debate.

Miami can clinch the AFC's final wild-card berth Sunday with a little help and a win over the New York Jets. But a 19-0 loss at Buffalo cost the Dolphins control of their destiny.

On a cold, windy, rainy afternoon, the Dolphins hardly looked like a team worthy of playing in January. They gained only 103 yards, their lowest total since 1999, and allowed 203 yards rushing, their worst such showing in six years. Beleaguered quarterback Ryan Tannehill limped out of the game with a left knee injury in the fourth quarter, then returned to be sacked for a seventh and final time.
