What the latest from the NFL playoffs: What you need to know
Posted On July 17, 2021
The Miami Dolphins have been eliminated from the playoffs for the second consecutive season.
While the Dolphins lost to the Washington Redskins, the team had its most impressive victory in franchise history, a 29-24 win over the New York Jets.
The Dolphins finished the season at 7-6 and will play in the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The franchise will take a big step forward with the signing of offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who was a first-round pick in the 2016 draft.
Vollmers offensive line is expected to be the most improved in years.
Vollmer will join a line that features the likes of guard Jordan Mills, offensive tackle J.T. Thomas and center Alex Balducci.
The team also added cornerback Jourdan Lewis, safety Jourdiedel McClain and linebacker Michael Sam.
