2 QBs and stingy defense have Dolphins in playoff contention

MIAMI (AP) The way the Miami Dolphins are playing defense, it doesn't matter who they have at quarterback.

Ryan Fitzpatrick is 4-3 as the starter and rookie Tua Tagovailoa is 3-1, largely because the Dolphins rank second in the NFL in points allowed per game.

Stingy defense has the Dolphins (7-4) in contention for their first AFC East title since 2008, and they're 11-point favorites Sunday at home against Cincinnati, even though they don't know who their QB will be.
