A short week and two struggling offenses should make for a defensive slugfest. The Dolphins will be without Jay Cutler, and turn to Matt Moore, who went 2-1 as a starter last season, to defeat the Ravens.

The Ravens meanwhile have huge offensive line woes, ineffective receivers, and a declining Joe Flacco.

As I said, I think this will turn out to be a defensive war, but one we can win. Give me:

Miami 14
Baltimore 13

As always, GO DOLPHINS!

mike wallace and perriman in the concussion protocol on a short week isnt too promising for their chances to start

The defense slugfest has to wait, as the Ravens have been pretty careless when it comes to tackling runningbacks - or cover tight ends. We do a pretty good job at covering on the outside though, where Brandon Carr has been a nice, quiet off season addition, and Jimmy Smith and Marlon Humphrey has played well on the other side.

The exploitation of your linebackers like last year is not something which will happen.

keeping Suh from killing Flacco and establishing the run against your DLine will be key for the Ravens to have a chance, other than that i fully expect this to be Div II level all around.

Miami............17

Haven't won up there since the early 2000s.. but this is probably the worst Ravens team we've seen since then.

FWIW Baltimore is favored by -3.

We always have a tough time with Baltimore, but despite that fact, I'm predicting a Dolphins victory.  I expect Ajayi to break a couple of tough runs in the first half and put us ahead early.  Afterwards I expect to see our defensive front pin their ears back and cause some havoc in the backfield.  I'll be watching for the Matt Moore outside the pocket rollouts off the play action to pick up chunk yards in the second half.

Dolphins 24

Ravens 20

 

Fins up!!!!

You're giving us too much credit.

Cutler has been ruled out (duh), so has LG Anthony Steen.

DeVante Parker, Andre Branch, Laremy Tunsil, Jordan Phillips listed as questionable.

He's right that we've had huge problem with you guys recently. Since the 2007 game that we won to prevent us from going 0-16, we're 1-6 vs you guys. Definitely been rough... we're John Harbaugh's b's to be honest.

Wow O-Line play is horrible as usual and I am starting to think that an offensive coordinator may be a good thing also.

Utter embarrassment. We have to watch two more games in a row of this team on primetime. I don't know if I Can handle it.

Moving Tunsil to OG last year seems like it hindered his development. He looks top-heavy, slow to react. He has NOT lived up to his draft status / hype this season.

Being on a 3rd OL coach over 23 games can do that to a position group. Gase needs to make finding a quality OL coach who will be in Miami for a few seasons the top priority this offseason. There is / will be too much invested in that OL for it to continuously be putting out such bad game tape.

Kiko hit was NOT dirty. Borderline bang-bang play.

Suh, however, toed the line and then stuck half his foot across.

Hayes going for the eyes of an OL deserves a suspension.

 

So about Tannehill.. same top 3 WRs, same RBs, 4/5 same OL, same offensive assistants outside of OL... and a massive difference in offensive production between 2016 and 2017. Hmm... after watching Cutler's happy feet and inaccuracies, Moore feeling ghosts in the pocket and throwing simply bad balls, maybe some of us can be a little more thankful for Mr. Tannehill.

Overall an incredibly embarrassing display, bummed me out even more than the first Jets game.

The Ravens now own Gase's two worst defeats, 32 points last year and 40 this year. Terrible.
