Keys to the game for the Miami Dolphins vs Denver Broncos

The 6-4 Miami Dolphins travel to the mile high city to play the 7-3 Denver Broncos in a pivotal match up that will affect the the AFC playoff race for both teams. This game is very important for the Miami Dolphins as they try to get back in the playoffs for the first since 2008. They can't afford too many more losses this season and if they can get a win over Denver who is coming off a loss to the Rams it will probably their biggest win of the season. Here are my Keys to the game to beat Denver.

  1. Pressure Peyton Manning: If our front 7 can put pressure on Peyton and either get sacks or make Peyton get the ball out in a hurry will be key. If we can make him get the ball out of his hands in a hurry he will make the same mistakes as he did last week and throw interceptions. 
  2. Stay positive on the turnover margin: We can't afford to give the ball back to manning and that offense. We can't give them extra possessions to put points on the board. Another thing is we need to force turnovers wether it be forced fumbles or interceptions we need at least two turnovers from our defense and not only do we need turnovers we need to capitalize on them and score touchdowns.
  3. Run the ball effectively: The Rams were able to run the ball for 131 yards we need to do the same with Lamar Miller and get positive yards doing so.
  4. Own time of possession: again by running the ball the Rams won time of possession by over ten minutes. If we can control this game it will help us a lot.
  5. Score touchdowns in the red zone: Knowing Denver's offense we cant afford to kick field goals when we get in the red zone we have to score touchdowns to keep up with the Broncos. 
  6. Get off the field on third down: Our defense needs to get off the field on thirds downs and force the Broncos to punt the ball and give our offense more opportunities.

Harbugh won't be coming to Miami in near future

Ian Rapoport also mentioned this morning on NFL Network that Stephen Ross doesn't want to fire Joe Philbin at this point and Philbin is safe in Miami.

In case you missed NFL Networks show A FOOTBALL LIFE on the 1972 Miami Dolphins backfield of Csonka, Kiick, and Morris here are is the show!

Davis to IR, Brown brought up to Main Roster

Will Davis #29
Dolphins CB and special teams stand-out Will Davis has been placed in IR ending his 2014 season with a torn ACL. The Dolphins called up CB Jalil Brown from the practice squad to take his place.

The Dolphins have already lost Safety Michael Thomas in the secondary and now Davis, so if Cortland Finnegan can't go vs Denver in two weeks the Dolphins will be hurting in the defensive backfield with very little depth. And Peyton Manning licking his chops to attack a very thin Dolphins secondary.

Post game outlook from Dolphins vs Bills

The Miami Dolphins picked up a huge victory last night on Thursday night football to improve to 6-4 and keep stride in the AFC playoff race. There wasn't much offensive explosion in the first half of the game as it was a defensive battle and the Dolphins trailed 6-3 heading into halftime. The Dolphins who are a good 3rd quarter team came out and scored the first touchdown of the game courtesy of a Ryan Tannehill 7 yard touchdown pass to Brandon Gibson. Once the offense got the lead the Dolphins defense took over the game only allowing 3 more points and getting multiple sacks including a safety in the 3rd quarter. Heading into the 4th quarter the Dolphins lead 12-9 and would add to that by scoring another touchdown this time a 8 yard touchdown pass from Tannehill to Jarvis Landry. The Dolphins would get another field goal to close out the game as the defense got two fourth down stops and secure a 22-9 victory. My keys to the game were to protect Tannehill, protect the ball, special teams, start fast, and convert on the third down.  The Dolphins did not start fast nor did they protect Tannehill like I would have liked them to by only scoring 3 points in the first half and allowing 5 sacks not all of which were the offensive lines fault as Tannehill ate the ball on some to not force a mistake. For the most part they took care of the ball despite two fumbles by Tannehill and Landry, but the defense bailed them out. The Dolphins special teams did a good job not allowing any big returns and the offense did a good job on third down converting 4/9 which is 44%

My Prediction for Bills @ Dolphins (Thursday night football)

Bills @ Dolphins: This is a very important game for both teams if they want to get back into the playoffs this year and more importantly for the Dolphins as they lost to the Bills in week 2 and can't afford another loss to the Bills. I suspect it to be a good competitive game. Both teams are coming off a loss and The Dolphins are the team to break the skid at home. Ryan Tannehill will continue to play well as he will throw two touchdowns, but Kyle Orton will match that and special teams will be the difference as it has been in the past the Biills have capitalized in that phase of the football game by having both a punt and kick off for a td in recent meetings, but this time it will be the Dolphins turn as Jarvis Landry will return a punt to the house and secure a win. Dolphins win 27-24
