The scary thing is that this game is very winnable for Miami, in a season where we sorta-kinda really DON’T want to win.
Beating the Browns (with NY Jets, Cincy, and NY Giants still upcoming), puts us in contention to win up to 6 games this year. 6 wins would really take the Dolphins out of contention for the elite draftees.
Our defense is plagued with injuries, but Baker Mayfield is just bad enough and just inexperienced enough to not take advantage of that. I would not be surprised if savvy veteran Ryan Beard Fitzpatrick outplays the kid. Cleveland is also looking forward to a Pittsburgh rematch next week, so they might be taking us too lightly. I hope not.
Like the past few weeks, it is very hard to watch the Dolphins lose, but we have to understand it’s for the best. The fans and management know this, but we’ll see if Brian Flores gets it.
