What if the Dolphins Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Dolphins will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Will Mike Pouncey Be Back in 2016? Center Claims “I Don’t Know”

Mike Pouncey

The Dolphins may be without starting center Mike Pouncey for the rest of the season, as he’s been sidelined the last three weeks by a recurring hip injury.

The center said Sunday that he’s not sure he’ll play the rest of the season, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

“You’ve got to ask coach [Adam] Gase that one,” Pouncey said. “I don’t know. We’ll see how it goes.”

Pouncey also said that his left hip “feels good” and that he’s making progress, but that he’s day-to-day.

He added that he doesn’t know how he re-injured his hip, which needed surgery in the preseason. Pouncey visited a specialist while the Dolphins were on the West Coast, and the doctor ultimately decided that he would not need another procedure and might be able to play again this year.

“Anytime you don’t have to get surgery, it’s the best news in the world,” Pouncey said.

Dolphins Dominated by Ravens 38-6 as Flacco Torches Miami D for Four TD’s

Miami Dolphins v Baltimore Ravens

John Harbaugh had been waiting the entire season for the Baltimore Ravens to put it all together in one memorable, outstanding performance.

His patience was rewarded Sunday.

The Ravens combined a record-setting passing day by Joe Flacco with a rugged defensive effort in a 38-6 rout of the Miami Dolphins.

“It was just a heck of a team victory,” Harbaugh said. “It’s something that’s been in our minds, our vision of how we played today as a team. It’s what we’re working for, and it’s nice to see it happen.”

Flacco threw for 381 yards and four touchdowns, and the Ravens (7-5) made it apparent early that Miami’s six-game winning streak would not make it to seven.

Dolphins Defense Stuffs Kaepernick on Final Play to Hold On for 31-24 Win

Jay Ajayi

Colin Kaepernick drew boos at the start of the game. By the end, he had Dolphins fans holding their breath.

Ndamukong Suh tackled Kaepernick 2 yards short of the goal line as time ran out, and the Dolphins handed the 49ers a franchise-record 10th consecutive loss by winning 31-24 Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill threw for 285 yards and three scores to compensate for an uncharacteristically sluggish Miami ground game.

Kaepernick, who has drawn mixed reactions for kneeling during the national anthem all season, was jeered loudly in the early going for his political views. He threw for 296 yards, ran for 113 and rallied the 49ers after they trailed 31-14 midway through the fourth quarter.

With the margin down to seven, Kaepernick moved the 49ers from their 38 to the 6 in the final 1:44, converting a fourth-and-11 along the way. But he threw incomplete on first down, and then was tackled from behind by the 305-pound Suh while trying to elude linebacker Kiko Alonso on the final play.

Dolphins Rally for Late 14-10 Win Over Rams for Fifth Straight Win

Miami Dolphins v Los Angeles Rams

DeVante Parker caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill with 36 seconds to play, and the Miami Dolphins rallied for two late scores to spoil Jared Goff’s NFL debut with a 14-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

Tannehill passed for 172 yards in the fifth straight victory for the Dolphins (6-4), who were dominated by the Rams’ defense until their final two drives on a rainy day at the Coliseum. Miami barely kept alive its longest winning streak since 2008.

After Jarvis Landry caught a 10-yard TD pass with 4:02 to play, the Dolphins got the ball right back and drove downfield for Parker’s diving TD reception in the corner.

Goff went 17 of 31 for 134 yards in a quiet debut by the NFL’s No. 1 pick in the Rams’ 10th game of the season.
