FOXBORO -- Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said the Patriots offense is going through the type of transition that most NFL teams go through at the beginning of every year.

While seeing and understanding some of their struggles this season, Philbin thinks New England is making "nice progress" on offense, entering their game with Miami at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

"Their offensive line, I think, is very very good," said Philbin on Wednesday. "I think Dante Scarnecchia is one of the best offensive line coaches in the National Football League. I like the balance that they have. They got their tight end back, who they target, who can make plays all over the field. I think their young receivers are getting better. Ridley's a good back. And obviously their quarterback is as good as there is in the game. It's a talented group, and it's a well-coached group."
