The Dolphins face an uphill, but winnable, game in Pittsburgh today. On Saturday, both road teams were blown out, so let’s hope the Dolphins reverse that trend.
The game will come down to the Dolphins’ offensive playmakers. Can Landry, Ajayi, and Stills all put something together? Can Matt Moore even get the ball to them? A lot of that will depend on the O-line, but even more will depend on Adam Gase learning his lessons. Will he continue to call pass plays every single time we have 3rd and one? A lot will come into play.
So far, I’ve been studying the NFL Network team, and their coverage is 99% in favor of Pittsburgh. That’s okay. The lack of respect might just work in our favor. But seriously, do we really need a segment on what Antonio Brown is wearing to the game on the bus?
As expected, Byron Maxwell will not play today. So we only have one healthy starter in our secondary in Tony Lippet. Could be a long long day, especially if our D line gets no pressure on Big Ben.
