Can The Miami Dolphins Keep the Streak Alive?

Written by Finatic Dave

The Miami Dolphins will try for 6 straight wins on Sunday when they face the San Francisco 49er’s at Hard Rock Stadium. When was the last time the Dolphins ran a six game win streak?? Here is your answer…

The Dolphins will enter the 49ers game looking for its sixth straight victory. In franchise history, the Dolphins have had 12 winning streaks of six regular season games or longer. Only one of those was not led by Hall of Fame coach Don Shula. The most recent one was a six-game winning streak from Nov. 27, 2005 to Jan. 1, 2006 while Nick Saban was the head coach.

As part of Miami's five-game winning streak, the Dolphins have won four consecutive games while trailing at some point in the fourth quarter. According to ESPN Stats & Info, it is the first time in franchise history that the team has won four straight games while trailing in the fourth quarter. According to Elias Sports Bureau, the last NFL team to accomplish this was the Denver Broncos in 2011 - a team with Adam Gase as its quarterback coach.

Miami became the second team in the NFL this season to win a game after they were scoreless entering the fourth quarter, joining the Jacksonville Jaguars, who did so in Week 6 at Chicago.
