Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins’ offense resumed where they left off before Tua Tagovailoa was concussed a few weeks ago. A 13-point first quarter against the Steelers, though Miami managed just three points in the subsequent 45 minutes of the game. Tagovailoa ended with 261 passing yards (one touchdown), while Raheem Mostert had 79 yards on the ground. That wasn’t great, considering Pittsburgh’s defense ranks 22nd in scoring, and 28th in yards allowed.

While the Dolphins‘ offense is sputtering, it isn’t even their biggest problem here. Their defense is 23rd in scoring, and 21st in yards so there’s that. So, if the offense doesn’t produce, there’s not much wiggle room.

…even less now that leading tackler, safety Brandon Jones, has suffered a season-ending torn ACL.

Detroit Lions

The Lions’ season, which was promising, is now a pathetic one. Detroit began the season by averaging 35 points, albeit with a 1-3 record. In two games since, Detroit had a grand total of just six points, getting trounced by the New England Patriots (29-0) and Dallas Cowboys (24-6). Repeating, shut out against the Pats, then two field goals against Dallas. Detroit hasn’t seen the end zone since Week 5’s fourth quarter in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Detroit’s horrendous defense ranks dead-last in points (32.3 per game) and yards allowed, along with opposing touchdowns per game. When the offense was rolling, the defense failed to stop anyone. Now, it’s an awful offense, meaning that all hope is lost here. Obviously, fade the Lions, even with a return to Motown.

Dolphins vs Lions Prediction

Offensively, the Fish have a higher chance of pulling out of their tailspin. The Lions have gone back-to-back games without a touchdown, and Jared Goff hasn’t made many friends lately. The Dolphins looked good early last week, and Tagovailoa has had another full week of practice. Pick them to take down a weak pride of Lions.
