With a 2-3 record, the Miami Dolphins are still playing meaningful games.

No one expected much from the Miami Dolphins in 2012, but with a 2-3 record after five weeks, the team is not dead in the water at this point of the season, as some experts projected.

There's a big difference between 2-3 and 1-4. It gives Dolphins fans hope for the rest of the season.

While Miami has played tough teams early in this season, the Phinsider says it did what it needed to win on Sunday.

It was not the Dolphins' best played game of the season, losing the offensive yardage battle 298 to 279 and time of possession 31:11 to 28:49, but the team did enough to win.

And, at the end of the day, coming away with a win feels much better than dominating a game only to lose like has happened the last two weeks.

In an unexpected turn of events, the Week 6 game between Miami and the St. Louis Rams is suddenly a big one for both teams. It will be the Dolphins' last game before the bye.
