DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins underwent interrogation Monday by an NFL special investigator, although they had already addressed one pressing question: Would they fold on the season? Answer: No. New York attorney Ted Wells began interviewing players regarding the harassment case involving tackle Jonathan Martin and suspended guard Richie Incognito. Wells visit was expected to last at least two or three days, ensuring further distractions for a team trying to keep its season from derailing. A defeat Sunday would have accelerated the Dolphins recent tailspin. Instead they beat San Diego 20-16 to improve to 5-5 and remain in the race for an AFC wild-card berth. "Its going to come down to a tight finish, and we have to win," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "We want to win all the rest of our games." The Dolphins will try to do so while ensnared in the biggest scandal in franchise history. Martin left the team three weeks ago and alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito. On Friday, Martin spent nearly seven hours talking with Wells. Before the attorney began his interviews with other players, he released a statement -- his first public comments about the investigation. "We look forward to meeting with Dolphins players, coaches and staff in order to get the facts and prepare a thorough and fair report," Wells said. "The Dolphins organization has been very helpful in arranging the interviews and urging their personnel to co-operate with the investigation. We have asked all Dolphins personnel to respect the process and avoid commenting on the investigation." Wells was appointed Nov. 6 by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to investigate the Dolphins workplace and prepare a report that will be made public. "As weve said from Day One, were going to fully co-operate," coach Joe Philbin said. Offensive co-ordinator Mike Sherman said he was among those scheduled to talk Tuesday with Wells, after players had been interviewed. "Hopefully most of what the players have to do will be taken care of today," Sherman said. Defensive co-ordinator Kevin Coyle said he didnt expect the investigation to significantly affect preparations for Sundays home game against Carolina. "Weve been told theyre going to do everything they can to not disrupt the normal flow of the week," Coyle said. "I dont think its going to have much of an impact." Philbin agreed. "Were sticking to the schedule," he said. "Well be fine." As tackle Tyson Clabo noted, the Dolphins are 2-1 since Martin left the team and the scandal began to unfold. Eight wins might be enough to make the playoffs in the parity-filled AFC, and the Dolphins are tied with the Jets in the race for the sixth and final playoff spot. The teams play each other Dec. 1 and Dec. 29. The Dolphins are at .500 even though theyve been outgained by 571 yards this year, and they were hardly dominant against the Chargers, who totalled 435 yards but scored only one touchdown. Miami won despite missing 60 per cent of its offensive line, including centre Mike Pouncey, who was out sick. Replacements included undrafted rookie Sam Brenner, who won praise from teammates in his NFL debut. The victory inspired an emotional postgame locker-room pep talk by the stoic Philbin. "The focus and the resiliency of you guys, all right, this week amid all thats going on -- unbelievable," Philbin shouted. "Fantastic job by you guys hanging tough, sticking together and working at your job, being a pro, coming to work every day regardless of the circumstances." Receiver Mike Wallace conceded the game seemed like a refuge amid the recent media scrutiny. "This is one of the only things we have to escape everything else -- to just go out and play a football game," Wallace said. "Any time you can get a win it makes everyone around you feel good, and even the people who are not around you." That might include the two fans sitting side by side Sunday who wore brown bags over their heads, one bearing a photo of Incognito, the other a photo of Martin. Martin, a second-year pro from Stanford, has been with family in California undergoing counselling for emotional issues. He attended Stanfords game Saturday at Southern Cal, watching from the sideline. Incognito filed a grievance last week against the Dolphins seeking to rejoin the team. Revelations about their relationship struck a national nerve on the issue of locker-room bullying, and have even gone global. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana offered a reaction Monday from the Great Wall of China, where he was on a tour to promote football. Montana said bullying was common in the NFL, and said the locker room is a "fun, crazy place," but added, "Its a tough place, too, sometimes." NCAA Jerseys Outlet .

Minnesota made it to the second round of last springs playoffs and was a favorite to return to the postseason in 2014-15. Things have not gone as planned, however, and the Wild find themselves six points out of a playoff spot in the West. The Wild also are sitting fifth in the Central Division -- eight points behind the fourth-place Jets and just one ahead of Colorado. Minnesota is currently mired in a four-game losing streak (0-2-2), matching the clubs 0-4 mark from Nov. 4-11 for its lengthiest skid of the season. The Wild havent dropped five straight since an 0-6 slide from Dec. 19-31 of last season. The usually sting Wild have imploded defensively during their current slide, allowing a total of 19 goals over the four setbacks. Minnesota yielded five goals in Tuesdays setback to the Philadelphia Flyers, who posted a 5-2 win to drop the Wild to 0-1-2 on a four-game homestand. Marco Scandella and Charlie Coyle scored against the Flyers. Darcy Kuemper stopped 25 shots in the setback. I think its a blessing that we have three days off to step away, said Wild forward Matt Cooke. Kuemper was pressed into duty for Niklas Backstrom after the latter netminder was a late scratch due to an illness. Its uncertain who will get the call in net tonight. Mike Yeos club hopes its recent success against the Jets can hhelp it get back on track.dddddddddddd The Wild posted a 4-3 overtime win over a visiting Winnipeg club on Nov. 16, giving Minnesota wins in two straight and five of the last six meetings in this series. The Wild are 6-1-1 with a tie in nine all-time home tests against the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise. The clubs will meet again in Mondays rematch at MTS Centre. Winnipeg finished its pre-break schedule on a four-game point streak (3-0-1) and it posted an impressive victory in its final tilt before the hiatus. The Jets visited Chicago on Tuesday and slammed the Central Division-leading Blackhawks, 5-1. Mathieu Perreault continued his hot play of late with two goals to lift Winnipeg in the rout at United Center. Perreault has tallied five goals and four assists over an eight-game point streak and Tuesdays performance was his first multi-point game of the run. Blake Wheeler finished with a goal and an assist, Bryan Little and Anthony Peluso also scored and Andrew Ladd supplied two helpers for the Jets. Michael Hutchinson, who posted a 33-save shutout in Winnipegs 1-0 over Chicago on Nov. 2, was stellar once again, turning aside 38 shots for the win. Hutchinson was good for us and made some key saves at the right times, said Perreault. When we got our chances, we were able to put them in. Jets coach Paul Maurice may continue his goaltender rotation tonight and give Ondrej Pavelec the start over Hutchinson. Pavelec is 2-2-1 with a 2.55 goals against average in seven career outings against Minnesota. ' ' '
