  Dolphins stuck together, bounced back from 1-4

Miami (7-4) enters Sunday's game at Baltimore (6-5) holding the final wildcard spot in the AFC, and players say they're not surprised to be in this position even after their 1-4 start.

The Dolphins say it's because they stuck together and didn't point fingers.

"I wouldn't say I'm surprised, but I'm proud of the way the guys have banded together," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "Times were tough early on in this year, things weren't going well. We really stuck together, kept pressing forward and came together as a team.

"We found a way to win in a bunch of games. This team knows how to win now. I feel like no matter what happens going forward, we can always try to find a way to win, because we've done it before."

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh echoed Tannehill's sentiment.

"I think at the end of the day, it's all about guys coming together wherever you're from, whatever you've been through," Suh said. "At the end of the day, we've found a groove and became a unit offensively, defensively and special teams.

"It's all about putting that together and I think we're finding a way to do that. (We) pick each other up in tough times and in good times."

The Dolphins have done some magical things during their six-game winning streak, including winning with offense, defense and special teams, and within that winning with the running game and the passing game, and winning with interceptions and/or winning the turnover battle.

Basically this is a Dolphins team that feels invincible to some extent.

Tannehill think good things are in store for the Dolphins.

"We're on the right track right now," he said. "We have to keep progressing, keep working, taking advantage of each and every day and keep working to get better.

"Obviously, (there is) still a lot of room to improve. (We are) doing some good things, but (there is) a lot of room to improve. If we keep doing that, we'll be in a good spot."



SERIES HISTORY: 12th regular season meeting. Dolphins lead series, 6-5. Miami won the last meeting, 15-13, last season when DE Derrick Shelby returned an interception 22 yards for a touchdown. This is the fourth consecutive season these teams have met, with all the games being in Miami, and the Ravens lead, 2-1. Interestingly, this is the third consecutive season these teams have met in December and they've split the previous two games.
