This young (2nd youngest team in the NFL) upstart team is playing above anyone’s expectations and at 4-3 are in the hunt for the division title of the AFC East. Our Miami Dolphins who are being lead by most assuredly a Coach of the Year candidate Brian Flores at just about the midway point of the season and a coach that has captured the hearts of just about every Dolphins fans.
Miami winners of 4 of their last five games and are currently on a 3 game win streak will face one of their toughest challenges in the month of November as they head to Arizona to take on a very good Cardinals team who are also on a 3 game win streak and have one of the most dangerous QB’s in the NFL Kyler Murry who can run and pass with the best of them and he has weapons in DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and former Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake (out for this game) on offense to assist in their prolific offensive attack.
This will be the 2nd start for Miami’s rookie hopeful QB Tua Tagovailoa as he starts to settle in as the full time starter and even though his first start was pedestrian in numbers he did get a win and much thanks goes to the team as they had a complete victory against the Rams and their vaunted defense that was actually outshine by Miami’s defense who was the real catalyst in the win over the Rams last week.

On to the match ups
The match up: on Offense
The Arizona Cardinals are ranked number 1 in total offense averaging 419.1 yards per game on offense, scoring 29 points a game while Miami ranks 28th in total offense (Down from last Game) averaging 324.4 yards per game on offense, scoring 26.9 points per game.
The match up: on Defense
The Arizona Cardinals defense is ranked 23rd in total defense and is giving up on average 378.4 yards per game and allowing 20.9 points per game, while Miami is ranked 20th in total defense (Down from last week) giving up on average 376 yards per game 18.6 points per game (No.1 Fewest in the league).
For The Dolphins:
Miami needs to try and contain the most lethal weapon in the NFL QB Kyler Murry who is a dynamic player who is leading the league as the best rushing QB in the game with a total of 437 rushing yards. he is also 3rd best in fantasy points of all QB’s and he torched the Seahawks with 360 passing yards, 3 TD’s and 67 yards rushing in an overtime win in their last outing. The Cardinals are coming off a bye week and have had plenty of rest and time to prepare for our Dolphins. This is a tough task for Miami this week.
For The Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals will face the number 1 defense in points allowed per average in a game as Miami’s 18.6 points allowed per game is the best so the key for them is to have another Steller game by their amazing QB Kyler Murry. Miami also posses two of the best CB’s in the league and when they have been on the field together they have shut down opponents passing attack. It should be a great matchup between their two pro-bowl and potential Hall of fame receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald vs Xavien Howard and Byron Jones who are also at the top of their games at that position.
This will be a battle between the Cardinals offense vs Miami Defense and who will have the better game if Kyler Murry goes off the Cards will win but if Miami’s defense can keep Murry in check and our DB’s contain their WR’s Miami will come out with the win.
Tua Tagovailoa should have the chance to have a better game vs the 20th ranked defense of the Cardinals and if DeVante Parker, Preston Williams, or Mike Gesicki have a big day than Miami can come away with a win.
Miami will need to rely on their passing game because they have a rash of injuries at the RB position that will limit an already underwhelming rushing attack.

Defense needs another big day, and our receivers gotta catch the darn ball….they had had enough practice to get familiar with a counter clockwise spin…
