Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the web:
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes the Dolphins are not focusing on the past against the New England Patriots.
Morning take: New England has beaten Miami seven straight times. This is the dragon the Dolphins have tried to slay for quite some time.
Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel writes about the turnaround for Dolphins tailback Daniel Thomas.
Morning take: Thomas has been mostly a disappointment since becoming a second-round pick in 2011. But he showed a lot of guts to return from an ankle injury to rush for 105 yards.
Andy Kent of the Dolphins team site writes about Miami’s two defensive ends: Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon.
Morning take: They have combined for 19 sacks this season. Vernon’s improvement makes it difficult for teams to only key on Wake, who made the Pro Bowl last year.
Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post catches up with Dolphins defensive tackle Randy Starks, who had an “incident” against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Morning take: Starks had his privates grabbed in the bottom of the pile, but no flag was thrown. Starks said he has been ribbed by teammates about it.
