The Miami Dolphins will try and build on their up and down year when they play the Seahawks this week. The game will be played at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium, and is set to kickoff at 1 PM ET on FOX. Miami is currently 4-6 while the Seahawks come into the game at 6-4. Seattle hopes to earn a playoff appearance, but really need this win to make that dream a reality. The Dolphins certainly will not make it easy on them, but have lately had issues moving the ball.
The Dolphins last game ended in a 19-14 loss to the Bills in Buffalo. One week prior to that, they were destroyed by the Titans at home 37-3. Their last win was all the way back in week 8 against the Jets in New York. Reggie Bush and Ryan Tannehill have both struggled offensively to get wins for their teams. The defense has also had their ups and downs, and the team certainly has many pieces to get into place before they are an NFL talking point.
The Seahawks, on the other hand, continue to find ways to slip into the post-season. They have a very strong defense and a great running game behind running back Marshawn Lynch. Rookie QB Russell Wilson also has impressed the best football minds in the country. His numbers are not jaw-dropping, but he gets wins and is great late in games. This team certainly is a playoff caliber team, but needs to win games like this one Sunday to prove their worth.
