Noteworthy: The Dolphins and Vikings meet in a matchup that could sway both teams’ aspirations to reach the playoffs this season. Miami has won two straight games, and is tied with three other teams with a 7-6 record, on the outside looking in for the sixth and final AFC playoff spot. Minnesota, on the other hand, has lost three of four, but is clinging to the sixth seed in the NFC. … The Dolphins have won the last three matchups against the Vikings, while Minnesota’s last win in the series came in 2002. … The Dolphins own the NFL’s best winning percentage in one-score games (eight points or fewer) at 76.9 percent, with a 20-6 record since 2016 under coach Adam Gase. … Miami will likely to play without standout cornerback Xavien Howard, who is tied for the NFL lead with seven interceptions. Howard is recovering from a left knee injury.
