    Miami -- The Miami Dolphins have clinched the AFC East with a 41-3 blowout of the Philadelphia Eagles.​

    In typical fashion, the Dolphins defense came up big with five forced fumbles and three sacks.​

    Chad Henne was out of the ordinary going 19 of 24 for 248 yards, 4 TDs and two picks.​

    Brandon Marshall caught 13 passes for 151 yards and four touchdowns.​

    There had been rumors that the Dolphins would be shopping the top receiver, and while those rumors are still swirling, the price has certainly gone up.​

    "Brandon is just a weapon that can't be replaced," said Dolphin coach Davis. "He's placed big for us is a large reason why we are so successful."​

    Miami has three remaining games, all of them against AFC East opponents. Coach Davis has not made the decision to rest his starters but all signs point to him doing so in all three games.​

    "We can't really afford an injury right now," Davis said. "Plus it gives our young guys a chance to play and let us see what they can do ... for free basically."​
