The 2-3 Miami Dolphins will face the 3-2 St. Louis Rams on Sunday in Miami. The teams will face at 1 p.m. at Sun Life Stadium and should present a very close football game that features strength versus strength. Miami comes into the game with an offense that has shown some explosive ability behind running back Reggie Bush and receiver Brian Hartline. Meanwhile, the Rams have been stifling defensively as they give up few big plays or points to opposing teams.
The Dolphins come into this week 6 matchup after narrowly beating the Bengals last week 17-13. They did do this in Cincinnati, however, which is pretty impressive considering the Bengals are a team many can see going to the playoffs. The Dolphins have had some tough games this season and could easily have a bit better record. They seem to just need to put together a game that gets consistency from all phases of their team including the defense and special teams.
The Rams will come into the week’s game very refreshed as they have not taken the field since last Thursday when they faced the Cardinals. They were able to hand Arizona their first loss of the season as they nearly shutout the Cardinals 17-3 in that game. This was thanks mainly to the Rams defense that features two kids with famous dads in defensive lineman Jake Long and linebacker James Laurinaitis. Long’s father is legendary Raider Howie Long who is now an NFL Analyst while Laurinaitis’ father was one of the WWF’s road warriors. We will have to see if this combination will have enough in their tank to get a win on the road and try to propel the Rams into playoff talk.
