The Miami Dolphins got a much-needed win against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, moving their record to a respectable 4-5. After dropping their previous two in blowout fashion, the Dolphins' playoff hopes were dwindling and there was some real cause for concern.

Their victory over the Eagles erased those concerns a bit, but they're far from a sure bet to make the postseason. For now, they're just trying to string wins together.

"It was much needed," Landry said, via the Sun-Sentinel. "I think for us, just being able to respond and trying to build some momentum in the back half of the season to try to start a run, It means a lot."

While their Week 10 win was certainly impressive, the road to the postseason won't be an easy one. Six of their seven remaining games are against top-flight quarterbacks, beginning with Tony Romo and the Cowboys. They also have to face Tom Brady and the Patriots once again, which is sure to be a tough matchup.

"We know what's at stake, what we're trying to do, what we're trying to accomplish as a team," Landry said. "And I think that's the mindset that we're going to approach the second half of the season with, that it's time to peak and find ways to win games, especially like we did [Sunday]."
