The Dolphins are lead at quarterback by Ryan Tannehill. He has completed 175 of 289 passes for 1977 yards with 11 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. The Dolphins leading rusher is Lamar Miller.

He has rushed for 456 yards on 127 carries and 1 touchdown. Martin was put on injured reserve so he will miss the rest of the season with a torn labrum in his shoulder. Mike James will now be the #1 back and so far this season he has rushed for 254 yards on 55 carries and no touchdowns. The Buccaneers leading receivers this year are Vincent Jackson and Timothy Wright. Jackson has caught 43 of 94 passes thrown to him for 634 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Keys To The Game

For Miami

1. Can they bounce back? After winning their first 3 games to start the season they have lost 4 of the last 5 games.
2. Can they slow down Vincent Jackson? He is averaging  79.3 yards per game this season.
3. Can Tannehill have a passer rating above 82? When he does his team is 4-1 but when its under 82 his team is 0-3.

For Tampa Bay

1. Can they put a full game together and get their first win?
2. Can they slow down Lamar Miller? Over the last 2 games Miller is averaging 97 yards per game.
3. Can Mike Glennon play like he did last game? He completed 17 of 23 passes for 173 yards with 2 touchdowns and no interceptions.

 

My Prediction 

The Dolphins score first on a touchdown pass to Mike Wallace. The Buccaneers then score a field goal on their first drive. The Dolphins score another touchdown on a pass to Brian Hartline. In the 2nd quarter the Dolphins get a field goal to take a 17-3 lead. The Buccaneers get another field goal to cut the lead to 17-6. The Dolphins score another touchdown before the half to take a 24-6 lead. In the 3rd quarter starts with a touchdown pass from Mike Glennon to Vincent Jackson. The Dolphins score a field goal to give them a 27-13 lead. The Buccaneers then score a touchdown on a run from Mike James to cut the lead to 27-20 going into the 4th quarter. In the 4th the Dolphins score first on a 30 yard touchdown pass to Brian Hartline. The Buccaneers score another field goal to cut the lead to 34-23. The Buccaneers get a touchdown to cut the lead to 3. But the Dolphins run out the clock to win the game.

Final Score

Dolphins: 34
Buccaneers: 30
