Dolphins players not down in midst of 3-game losing streak

Alex Trautwig

The Miami Dolphins enter Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks on a three-game losing streak. But the players are keeping their spirits up, hoping to reverse their fortunes.

Even though the Miami Dolphins have lost three straight games, the mood around the locker room is actually upbeat and loose. The Dolphins are currently 4-6, three games back of the AFC East-leading New England Patriots and two games back of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts for the AFC wild cards.

Maybe there's the possibility that the the team believes it can rebound and make the playoffs, maybe the players are just desensitized to three-game losing streaks, having suffered through at least one every year since 2009. But it might be because head coach Joe Philbin is keeping the team focused on the task at hand.

In the locker room, Philbin places signs on the doors saying '1-0' representing the philosophy of shaking off the previous week and trying to win each game as it comes towards them. Recent history may also be something that is causing some optimism, given how the Denver Broncos finished the season on three-game losing streak and won a playoff game while the New York Giants lost four consecutive games before rebounding, making the playoffs and winning the Super Bowl.

If the Dolphins are going to keep that optimism going, they have to win Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. The game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff and the game will be broadcast on Fox.
