News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 15): Osweiler sure picked an unlikely setting for one of the best games of his forgettable career. He was effective in the short passing game and the Bears had trouble tackling Albert Wilson. Ryan Tannehill's injury is a bit shadowy, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Osweiler start against the Lions this week.
General News (Mon Oct 15): is now 4-0 in overtime games and 3-0 against the Bears.
Week 7: vs Detroit Lions
Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs CHI (28 / 44 / 380 / 3 / 2 pass, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)
It was a surprise start for Osweiler and an even more surprising victory for the backup quarterback. With 3 touchdowns and nearly 400 yards passing, Osweiler looked like the solid quarterback that had landed him his big money deal previously. He got a lot of help from Albert Wilson and a few really big plays, but he had an all-around solid day behind center. His first touchdown was a 5-yard toss to Nick O'Leary. The big tight end leaked out into the flat after the play action and Osweiler hit him in stride, so he could outrun his man to the pylon for the touchdown. The second touchdown did not come until the 4th quarter and was a product of Albert Wilson more than anything else. It was a quick hitting play to the sideline that Wilson was able to turn up the field and follow his blockers for 43 yards and the touchdown. Osweiler got the ball out quickly and it gave Wilson the chance to get to the second level in a hurry. His third touchdown was of the 75-yard variety and again came to Wilson before a 2-pt conversion to Kenny Stills tied the game late. Osweiler did have back to back drives (albeit sandwiched by half time and a Bears touchdown) where he threw 2 interceptions. The first came after the Dolphins had recovered a Bears fumble and it was a chuck and pray play right before half. There Bears did not have enough time to do anything with the ball and it was just Osweiler trying to make something happen before heading to the locker room. After half, the Bears opened with a touchdown and Osweiler tried to answer. Unfortunately, he stared down his receiver and had the route jumped by the corner. If it weren't for Mike Gesicki it would have been returned for a touchdown. Osweiler got a lot of help from the ground game this week and Albert Wilson, it will be interesting to see if he gets a shot next week or if Tannehill will regain his starting spot.
2018 Week 4 vs NE (4 / 5 / 35 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
This was probably not the opportunity that Osweiler wanted but he got his shot in relief of Tannehill in the 4th quarter. Osweiler looked good but it all came in garbage time against a soft New England defense that was playing with a big lead. He found Frank Gore on a 3rd and 2 play in the red zone. Osweiler rolled right as Gore leaked out into the flat. Gore broke a tackle and then walked into the end zone. His 1 rush attempt for 7 yards earned him second on the team in rushing this week and that is not something Kenyan Drake owners want to see. Osweiler is not taking over for Tannehill and will be relegated to backup duties again next week against the Bengals.
Latest NewsDolphins | Brock Osweiler leads OT victory (Sun Oct 14, 06:57 PM) - Miami Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler completed 28-of-44 passes for 380 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 6 overtime win against the Chicago Bears. Our View: It was Osweiler's best game of his career even though he threw a near pick six. He could add years to his career as a backup on the strength of this performance fueled by high percentage passes and poor tackling by the Bears.
