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.]

Becuz u watched this team play in NE do the same thing.....Miami doesn't know how to win nor hold on to a lead

Sturgis is who Dashi thought he was. The guy is streaky. Good when Hot, Horrible when Cold. He did the same thing at UF.

Should've kept carpenter.

Egnew at FB. I like. Egnew seems to have finally get it. And that is a big boy playing FB.

Of course its Ireland, but Ross extended his contract this season at 3-0.

Like buying your car before you have tested it in top gear.

Ross is to blame.

Wow Wheeler sucks!

Sturgis makes some clutch kicks in the first 3 games and then goes off the rails the last 4 games. Rookie!!!

Ireland at his best!

Wheeler...What a joke...

Our passing game has turned TERRIBLE !!

bengals are going to show Miami what scoring looks like!!!

I f**kin hate u philbin!!!!! ur too conservative!!!!'. u piece of s**t!

Why is no one bitching about Dion Jordan?!!! Instead of an offensive lineman of any caliber they take an experimental hybrid player that made experts laugh. How in the **** does Ireland have a job?!!! Shows the idiocy in this country. Apathetic mediocrity is accepted as a salaried job. Unbelievable!!!

Get Jordan in the damn game!!

Can someone pump a fist in Ireland's B hole?

Odrick!!!

ODRICK! Best defender we have!

Their kicker is a stud!!!!

Miami is playing with zero pride right now.
Ross, Ireland, Philbin, et al have lost the team.

Philbin has lost this team. Defense was better under Sparano. Offense is terrible and now the special teams has fallen apart.

A real kicker makes the FG. Thanks Sturgis!

OK...considering all their weapons....I'll take 3-0 at this point in the game.

If Sturgis did his job we would be tied up and HAPPY at this point.

Lets see how Sherman screws this up.

The draft board was pretty picked over by that third pick. If the Dolphins had the second pick, I bet Jeff Ireland would have easily found a starter.

Either there are a bunch of little kids dressed up as dolphins for Halloween or we really suck.........

I guess we really suck!

Happy Halloween, from yet another miserable fan. Thanks Ross and Ireland.

Listen, our D is playing great. These guys are not he easiest on O. Their D can be had.

Bengals are up…they don't look like a GREAT 6-2 team. Seems like the NFL Network before the game had nothing to talk about so they talked about how they could be considered a super bowl contender...

Ireland dressed up as a urine stained drunk. Oh wait, that is how he always is.

If Sherman passes once before we get to the 40 yard line he should be fired!

Have we completed a pass?

The few good plays that the defense do, the offense mess them up.
Lrt's see if this time the offense does something positive.

Faith is almost out !!! Sturgis has no more lives. After 2 misses out of the next 2. He has to go.

Ireland and the Coaches AREN'T GOING ANYWHERE THIS SEASON.

Cry, Complain, and Whine all you want. They are on the team for at least 1 more year.

Complaining Now will only hurt your argument. Makes most of you look like Cry Babies!! And not the J.Depp type.

Man Up and stop acting like a bunch of J.Martin's. I'm tired of the wussies that perpetrate as Dolphins' fans. If only some of you can follow your leader and just leave.

Here comes another fascinating Tanny-sack!

THILL completed the screen for 8 yards when it was 3rd and 18.

Lets go empty set again boys, its worked out so well this year....

Can't lose tonight...if they win, they win...if they lose, it helps regime change.

It's 3-0 and I feel like the game is over

So far, this draft class has been ranked dead last by the pundits. That is embarrassing. You have the 3rd overall pick and this draft class is ranked dead last?

Gets paid $60 million and can not catch the ball

Another Wallace drop and another ill advised pass by Sherman.

Unreal!

Just the fact that Jordan doesn't play tells you how clueless this coaching staff is...Like seriously...Jordan can eat Wheeler for breakfast...Will Davis was making all kinds of plays in training camp and you're going to tell me he's not better than Wilson and Carroll??? What about Jamar Taylor??? What a joke...Yeatman can't beat out Clabo???? Really??? Wow...He must really suck...

Should have paid him $61 million.

Cognito out. RIP Tannehill its going to be fright night.

jpao,

I know it's becoming popular to say run the ball but there is no way we'll win if we can't complete a few passes.

Wallace drops another. Ginn is back with his family.

Any fans out there that can play RG?????

This game can turn into a nightmare for the Dolphins, perfect for a Halloween.

THILL keeps hitting the #11 jersey. Shouldn't expect to make completions that way.

It's a 2 yard pass are you kidding me I wouldn't catch it either that's not Mike Wallace strength

Can we please go back to throwing to Hartline? At least there was some chemistry between the two.

Funny how in the preseason and first three games all the press loved Miami new look offense. High powered they called it, now they want to run a majority of the line. It was opposite under Sparano.

Sigh.

Karma.

Mike "Edward Scissorhands" Wallace.

Great block by Garner!!!!

You have to adjust to your personnel. That is the sign of a great coach. This team is suited more for a power running team and yet Sherman and Philbin insist on empty back sets.

Why won't Sherman run the damn ball??????

Dashi...Get real...Do you want us to call you Daddy?? You guys with your "Stop your crying" BS make me laugh...We have every fu****** right to cry...Last time we won a playoff game you probably weren't even born...Please...

Nice play by THILL and nice play by Egnew

Go = pass…unbelievable that they run plays that are set up that simple…Wallace = GO!

Wallace should have gotten a first down there.

Dooshi,
Wipe your chin. Ross' jizz is so 2008.

is Wallace a man or a gimp....what kind of run is that after the catch????

Egnew!!!! All-Pro!!! Lol.

Here we go again!!!!
