The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football team based in Miami, Florida. Here is a bio of the team:

Establishment and History

The Miami Dolphins joined the American Football League (AFL) as an expansion team in 1965. When the AFL and NFL merged in 1970, the Dolphins moved to the NFL.

The team has won the Super Bowl twice, in 1972 and 1973, and has been to the playoffs many times before.
Dan Marino, Larry Csonka, and Bob Griese are just a few of the great players who have played for the Dolphins over the years.

Home Stadium

Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, is where the Dolphins play right now. It used to be called Sun Life Stadium and then Joe Robbie Stadium.

Hard Rock Stadium can hold more than 65,000 people and has been the site of five Super Bowls and other big events, like the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Notable Players

Dan Marino is known as one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. He played for the Dolphins from 1983 to 1999. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005.

From 1968 to 1974 and again in 1979, Larry Csonka played fullback for the Dolphins. He was a key player in the Dolphins’ Super Bowl wins in the early 1970s and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987.

From 1967 to 1980, quarterback Bob Griese played for the Dolphins. He was a big part of the team’s Super Bowl wins in the early 1970s. In 1990, he was put in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Head Coaches

Don Shula was the head coach of the Dolphins from 1970 to 1995. He has a record of 347-173-6, which makes him one of the most successful coaches in NFL history. He led the team to their two Super Bowl wins and five other Super Bowl appearances.

The current head coach of the Dolphins is Brian Flores, who was hired in 2019 after serving as an assistant coach for the New England Patriots.


The New York Jets, the Buffalo Bills, and the New England Patriots are some of the teams that the Dolphins are known to hate.

These teams are all in the AFC East division with the Dolphins.

The Oakland/Los Angeles/Las Vegas Raiders and the Dolphins have been rivals for a long time. In the 1970s and 1980s, they played in several memorable playoff games against each other.

Fan Base

The Dolphins have a large and dedicated fan base, particularly in the South Florida region. The Dolphins have a long history, and many fans still remember how good they were in the 1970s.

The team has had trouble in recent years, but fans are still optimistic about the future with head coach Brian Flores and rising star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

In short, the Miami Dolphins have a long and successful history in the AFL and NFL. They have won two Super Bowls and had many famous players and coaches.

The team has a lot of loyal fans in South Florida, and it has some big rivalries with other teams in the AFC East division.

The Dolphins’ current home stadium, Hard Rock Stadium, is one of the best in the NFL. The team hopes to build on its recent success under new head coach Brian Flores and rising star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
