The Dolphins will face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday in Ohio. The Dolphins will bring a 1-3 record to the game while the Bengals sit at 3-1 in a tie for the lead in their division. The game will be played at 1PM at Paul Brown Stadium as the Bengals return home after a week 4 victory when they had to travel to Florida to play against the Jaguars. Miami now has to make the long trip from Florida, and are coming off a loss to the Cardinals in Arizona.
Miami has certainly has some “hard knocks” this season as they try and find an identity to their football tean. Rookie QB Ryan Tannehill has shown glimpses of what he can be. Meanwhile Reggie Bush seems to have put in some serious work over the offseason as he appeared reinvented when the season began. He suffered a more minor injury that scared many and can help the team advance in the passing game as teams will have to plan against his strong rushing attack. Unfortunately, it is yet to help produce wins.
The Bengals continue to show that young teams can have early success. Using a rookie QB and WR last season, the Bengals made it to the playoffs. AJ Green and Andy Dalton continue to make plays and have the team making another run for the playoffs. This latest game should be another step in that playoff chance, but in the NFL it is any given Sunday.
