Tonight's game is HUGE for the Fins. A measuring stick of Adam Gase's team. Is it must win? No, not unless the Dolphins want to be taken seriously. The Ravens have owned the Dolphins lately, and tonight's game is a chance for Miami to serve notice to the NFL that this team is for real. How bad has it been lately? The Dolphins are 1-6 against the Ravens over their last 7 meetings. That's bad. What's worse is most of those 6 loses haven't even been close.
Everything favors the Ravens tonight. They are at home, on a short week, after losing 2 straight. The Ravens need to look at this game as a must win. Baltimore's defense must be licking their chops going against a Dolphins offensive line that has under performed and goes into tonight banged up. Not to mention that they get Miami's 3rd starting QB of the season.
None of that matters. It's the Dolphins that will be judged by this game. This game will show if the Fins are ready to take the next step. If Adam Gase is one of the next great coaches in the NFL. If the franchise is ready to climb to the next level or as Jarvis Landry so eloquently put, that the NFL should stop doubting them. Like I said, it's HUGE!
Everyone enjoy the game! Go DOLPHINS!
