Bad Company

By starting 0-10, the Dolphins and head coach Cam Cameron have joined some pretty forgettable company this season. The Dolphins have become the 14th team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger to start a season with 10 consecutive losses, while Cameron is the fourth head coach to start 0-10 in his first season with a new team.
