Last week the Dolphins had their first real test as a contender. Following their epic comeback at the Ravens, the Dolphins generated increased betting on NFL attention. And with the favored Bills arriving at South Beach, the Dolphins had a golden opportunity. Miami delivered an impressive upset win. Last year, the Bengals could fly under the radar as a perennial loser that turned into AFC champions. This year they are taken much more seriously. And the going has been much tougher. But a Sunday win at the Jets is a good sign.
