Dolphins concede playoff chances are faint

DAVIE, FL (AP) - Miami Dolphins coach Tony Sparano has done the math, and he says his team must sweep the rest of its games to even have a shot at the playoffs.

After losing Sunday to Cleveland, the Dolphins are two games behind Baltimore in the race for the final AFC wild-card berth, and the Ravens hold the tiebreaker. The gap is even greater in the AFC East, where Miami trails the Patriots and Jets.

Sweeping the final four games is a tall order for a team that hasn't won two in a row since starting 2-0. The Dolphins will try to get something going beginning Sunday against the archrival Jets.

One bit of good news for Miami: The game is on the road. The Dolphins are 5-1 in away games and a mystifying 1-5 at home.
