Is it the offensive line? Miami has allowed an NFL-high 24 sacks in five games. The Dolphins allowed six sacks in their most recent loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Can this issue be fixed?

What about the running game? The Dolphins are averaging just 3.7 yards per carry, and neither Lamar Miller nor Daniel Thomas have done much this season. Is Miami’s one-dimensional offense the biggest concern?

Next up is offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. The Dolphins have had some strange play-calling offensively at times, and the pass-to-run ratio is getting worse. Is Sherman Miami’s biggest issue?

Finally, we have Miami’s injuries on defense. The Dolphins haven’t looked the same defensively the past two weeks after injuries hit this team hard. Key defensive starters such as Cameron Wake (knee), Nolan Carroll (shoulder), Dannell Ellerbe (shoulder), Dimitri Patterson (groin) all have ailments.

Using our SportsNation poll, vote on Miami’s biggest issue heading into the bye week. You can also share your thoughts in the comment section below or message me via Twitter @JamesWalkerNFL.
