I need to imagine, however I’ll be the Grinch that stole the Dolphins’ playoff probabilities this Christmas. Both defenses present up, however New Orleans, particularly enjoying within the loud Superdome, provides Miami a little bit extra bother. Plus, Alvin Kamara is probably the most dynamic participant on the sector and exhibits it. The successful streak was spectacular, however that is the place it ends. We’re left wanting again on the losses to the Jaguars and Falcons as to why this group gained’t attain the postseason.

It actually feels just like the Dolphins can hold this roll going, till you have a look at what the Saints did final week, shutting down Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Yes, Tua Tagovailoa is a greater quarterback than Taysom Hill, however Hill gained’t be enjoying, anyway. And the Saints protection goes to be an excessive amount of for the Dolphins this week.

While successful six video games in a row within the NFL is spectacular, the Dolphins acquired most of these victories towards unhealthy groups. The Saints are enjoying at house, and coming off of a shutout of Tom Brady and the defending Super Bowl champs. New Orleans’ protection ought to shut down Miami’s offense prefer it did Tampa Bay’s.

The Dolphins protection can be bringing it. But can the offense churn out over 120 dashing yards once more towards a stacked field within the raucous Superdome? If so, they’ve an opportunity to get to a successful file for the primary time because the season opener.
