USA TODAY predicts Dolphins to finish with 9-8 record, miss postseason again,

After finishing their 2021 campaign with a winning record,

The Miami Dolphins opted to fire head coach Brian Flores and replace him with San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel.

With the arrival of a new coach, plenty of money to spend and a collection of draft picks, 

The Dolphins went out and made some big splashes this offseason, signing left tackle Terron Armstead 

And trading for/extending wide receiver Tyreek Hill chief among them.

An offensive-minded head coach and an improved offensive line and group of weapons for quarterback

Tua Tagovailoa should be enough to bring Miami to the postseason for the first time since 2016.
