South Floridians with a tour group visiting Kenya recently were pleased to encounter a young boy who emerged from a mud hut wearing a Miami Dolphins shirt Los Angeles Chargers Hoodie , the only NFL apparel evident in his village.Alas, while the Dolphins might rank No. 1 in at least one part of Africa, they're bringing up the rear in preseason prognostications stateside.One TV network places them 32nd and last. Another web site ranks their Super Bowl chances ahead of only the New York Jets. Oddsmakers put the over-under for victories at 6.5, which would be a slight improvement on last year's 6-10 record."We're not being talked about," running back Kenyan Drake said. "If you look at our home schedule this year, we have all 1 o'clock games. That shows that the league doesn't see us as a prime-time matchup for anybody."Low expectations are nothing new for a franchise that has played one postseason game since 2008.Here are things to know about the once-again under-the-radar Dolphins:THE QB: Ryan Tannehill returns after missing the past 20 games because of left knee issues, and keeping him healthy will be the No. 1 priority.He's fine with the notion the season hinges on him."I love feeling that responsibility, because I know that I can handle it," Tannehill said. "We can do something special. Being able to captain that ship, so to speak, is a lot of fun."The offensive line could be the best Tannehill has played behind, which improves the chances the Dolphins can keep him in the lineup.THE COACH: Adam Gase was considered a keeper after he led Miami's overachieving 2016 team to 10 wins and the playoffs as a rookie NFL coach. The luster faded last year Customized Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys , when the Dolphins were inconsistent and undisciplined and lost eight of their final 10 games.Gase remains supremely confident in his ability to lead the Dolphins to their first postseason win since 2000 ó and more."It's a new start," he said. "That's the beauty of this league. You never know what personality a team's going to take on, what their characteristics are going to be, how they are going to handle adversity. You have those teams where nobody thinks they were going to do anything, and all of a sudden you're talking about them in January."SHAKING IT UP: Under Gase, the Dolphins have committed more penalties than any other team in the past two seasons.There were disciplinary issues off the field as well last year, which is partly why Miami bid adieu to three players with Pro Bowl resumes: defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, receiver Jarvis Landry and center Mike Pouncey.Gase brought in running back Frank Gore and receiver Danny Amendola, both veterans with reputations as leaders. The season will determine whether an improved culture can compensate for the loss of talent.SHAKING IT UP II: Middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick will assume significant roles despite having no NFL experience. McMillan, Miami's most promising rookie a year ago, is back after a knee injury in the first exhibition game ended his 2017 season.Fitzpatrick is expected to make an immediate impact after being taken with the 11th overall pick in April.Two other rookies, tight end Mike Gesicki and outside linebacker Jerome Baker www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com , also made strong bids for starting jobs in training camp. Altogether the Dolphins could have 10 new starters.STOPPING THE RUN: A winning season is unlikely unless Miami significantly improves a run defense that was awful the second half of last season, and early indications for 2018 are worrisome. In the second exhibition game, the Dolphins allowed 226 yards rushing to Carolina, including 71 on one play.It was so bad Suh poked fun at his former team on Instagram."Lol," he wrote.The Dolphins will formulate their response beginning Sept. 9 against Tennessee.AP freelancer Paul Gereffi at Amboseli National Park in Kenya contributed to this report. 1: Any time a starting QB goes down, itís a huge blow for the team. How well was Dalton playing before the injury, and how has Jeff Driskel looked since taking over. Is there any chance (even slim) of a quarterback controversy next year?Dalton started off the season extremely hot. He had all his weapons around him including Tyler Eifert, A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and John Ross. The Bengals offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, who officially took over this offseason, had even reworked Cincinnatiís offense from the ground up for the first time since Jay Gruden took over in 2011. However, his play dropped off after that Los Angeles Chargers T-Shirt , and it hard to blame Dalton entirely for that. It depends on who you ask if there will be a quarterback controversy. The one thing that is for sure is that it wonít be with Jeff Driskel. It will be a matter of if the Bengals decide to draft a quarterback early.As someone who thinks Dalton is a capable quarterback in the NFL, it feels like Dalton and the Bengals could benefit from a fresh start. Although, it would be shocking for the team to move on from Dalton if Marvin Lewis is still the coach.2: The Bengals had such a promising start to the season, but are currently on a four game losing streak. What was working at the beginning of the season that has stopped working lately, and whatís gone wrong for the Bengals since then?To an outsider, the instant answer would be injuries, which do play a part. However, for the Bengals to have been competitive this season they would have needed to stay pretty much 100 percent healthy. That just isnít a reasonable expectation. This team looks like it is poorly coached. Players arenít being used correctly at times, we keep seeing the same players struggle week after week without a thought of trying to mix things up and the general depth of the team is just poor. The short of it is Mike Brown and Lewis donít know how to run an NFL team in 2018.3: Marvin Lewis. Is the end of this season finally the end of his reign in Cincinnati, and do you want it to be?After the team re-signed him last season, Iím not going to hold my breathe on him getting fired. A far more likely scenario is that heíd decide to retire or walk away himself.At this point I think Mike Brown is the only person who is content with Lewis as the head coach. Any other organization would have fired after the Browns loss (or years ago).4: With AJ Green on IR, some other WRs are going to need to step up. Tyler Boyd has had a fantastic year Los Angeles Chargers Hats , but who else should we be looking out for on Sunday? Is it John Rossí time to shine?John Ross has shown flashes of being a capable wide receiver. It just doesnít appear this team knows how to use him. It feels like they treat him mostly like a deep threat decoy, but Ross is capable of running a full route tree. Honestly, aside from Boyd the Chargers wonít have much to worry about from the receiver position. Auden Tate should be active with Green out, and he is a big bodied receiver, but he is still learning how to play the position in the NFL.5: I have to ask, just for my own curiosity. How is Vontaze Burfict viewed by Bengals fans? Do you see him as a talented player who just needs to rein it in at times, or do you see it as anything more nefarious?Before this season, he was seen as a talented guy who liked to toe the line. He has crossed it a few times with the ankle twisting and things of that nature. However, a lot of what the national media blows some of his stuff up just because it is Burfict.This year he has looked like a shell of himself. We donít know if it is still him dealing with his hip injury, but he just looks two steps slower than he ever has. I donít think fans would be that upset to see him go at this point. He isnít a bad guy to have on your team though.Bonus Question (if youíre up for it!): Could we get a score prediction?You can expect very little resistance from this Cincinnati team. They canít move the ball on offense or stop anyone on defense. Chargers 41 Bengals 13. Custom San Francisco 49ers Jerseys
