The 1968 Miami Dolphins season was the team's third in the American Football League (AFL). The team improved on their 4–10 record from 1967, finishing the season 5–8–1 and moving one place up in the AFL Eastern Division. In week 6, the Dolphins tied the Buffalo Bills, 14–14, the first tie in Dolphins history. The team was probably best known as being the first team to lose as the home team to the Cincinnati Bengals, as their week 11 loss to the Bengals turned out to be the Bengals' only road win during their 1968 season.
