Live blog: Season on the brink

The Dolphins' season is on the brink and it pretty much all hangs in the balance tonight. On national television. Against a good opponent.

Obviously, the Dolphins are an underdog because they're 3-4 and losers of four consecutive games while the Bengals are 6-2 and have won four in a row.

But there is no NFL bylaw that states the Dolphins must lose tonight. There is no understanding that the team in freefall must continue its dive to irrelevance.

The Dolphins can save their season tonight with a victory. They have to get good games out of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, their secondary and defensive line and, of course their offensive line -- particularly Tyson Clabo.

But all those things are possible.

Will it happen? We'll find out in a few hours.

And we can find out together on the live blog. Join me there.

[Update: The Dolphins inactive tonight are Mike Gillislee, Pat Devlin, Dallas Thomas, Will Davis, Danny Watkins, Jonathan Martin, and Dion Sims.]

[Update 2: A club source tells me the team is giving Jonathan Martin wide latitude in deciding when he wants to return to the team and that there has been no return date set. The source tells me the club is concerned about the relationship between Martin and some teammates.]

Wow we are now celebrating punt rolls on the sideline. 3rd and 1. Remember Polite, we threw him out and now look at us. What was Ireland thinking we would do on short yardage with no FB.

Dolt.

Beautiful play 4 me. Everytime I see Thill with the ball I see a turnover. MVP of the team: Brandon Fields. I hope every fan here feels as impotent as their team looks.

lets be positive guys lol

Need the D to make a play!!

Bring fearless Dan Marino back to run the quarterback sneak. Dan was a real stud when it came to running the sneak...unstoppable.

They got 1 yard pretty easily

Taking Miller out when he's hot. .. makes sense

Put out an APB for the third pick in the draft, Deion Jordan.

good stick

Nice hit Misi

Our defense has also regressed. That used to be the strength of the team.

3rd and 4...make this stop!

I don't like our LBs...I like Ellerbe but I don't like Wheeler...Not a big fan of Misi either...

WAKE!!!!

yes!!! thats how u win games!

NICE!!

D came to play! So far.

WAKE!!!!

Wow Dalton pulled a Tannehill and fumbled. Yes!!!

Cam Wake baby...The only DOMINANT player the Dolphins have had in the last 5 years...

Wow!

have to turn this into a TD no field goals please

Why the heck is Thomas in there right now???

Jpao, stop taking my line

Nice play wake!!!!!

God I hate Daniel Thomas...What do they see in this guy???

Picked the wrong receiver!!!!

C. Wake is a beast. Definetely one of the few players with some ethos in this team.

Inaccurate, throws into coverage.

Why not run on 2nd down??

D Thomas has no business in the NFL. I've never seen a worse RB ever.

Horrible pass! Tannehill is starting to get happy feet.

Where is Lamar Miller???

Go for it!!!!

Even the commentators are saying stay with the run!!

sigh i dont like the call. is it because they know tannehill doesnt have time?

We no like empty backfield except if we are 14 down.

Philbin you're an idiot...

No good lmao.

Empty set you are serious. Man go for it. The offense sucks so bad.

Yea, kick it. Fins have problems on 3rd and short.

Wow.. incredible..

are you fuckin kidding me???

lol

LOL, they were too cheap to pay Carpenter!

Wow!

Should have drafted a kicker with a 3rd round pick.

Damn it Philbin.....are you serious? Your kicker is struggling and it's 4th and 1. Go for it you puss!!!!

wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!'n

UNBELIEVABLE

Man, we kept the wrong kicker. Carpenter is probably laughing his butt off.

Carpenter is laughing his butt off!

Omg, it can't get any worse

Well .. at least we didn't end up with a field goal :)

Way to go...Turnover goes for nothing...I hope they clean house...I really do...I don't have faith in any of our coaches...Time for change...Again...

Dear baby Jesus, please don't allow Stephen Ross to wakeup tomorrow morning. Oh and Jeff Ireland too. Your devoted servant Herb Eaversmells.

bring back Joe Dirt!!!

Man sugis chokes and we are sh1tting all over then on Defense. Empty backfield and empty Feckin head !!!
