By on August 17, 2014 at 5:05 pm

081714-WeekInreviewTraining camp has ended, and now the regular season is fast approaching for the Miami Dolphins after winning the second game of the preseason last night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After last night’s 20-14 victory, the team now resumes a practice schedule more in line with what will occur during the regular season as they get ready for the “dress rehearsal” preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys coming up this Saturday at Sun Life Stadium. But before we move past this week, there was a lot to take in from the final week of camp, and had wall to wall coverage of it.
