Dolphins Ravens TNF Preview and Pick

dolphins ravens

We should dub this game the battle of the worst offenses in the league. The Miami Dolphins travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

Don’t get me wrong, this game should still be interesting to watch. Why ? Well, for one, Matt Moore (Moops) is starting for the Dolphins. Jay Cutler is injured and that could be a good thing for fans who want to watch entertaining football. Jay Cutler has not been the most accurate QB this year.

Some facts about this game :

  • These are the two worst offenses in the league. Ravens rank 31st total offense and the Dolphins are 32nd.
  • Defensively they’re similar, although the Ravens are dead last in the league in rushing yards allowed. Expect a lot of Ajayi in this game
  • The Ravens throttled the Dolphins 38-6 in 2016 at M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore has defeated Miami three straight times at home by a combined score of 64-16
  • Matt Moore is 8-7 in 15 career starts for the Dolphins

The deciding factor of this game will be the inefficiency of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco vs the surprisingly stout defense of the Dolphins. I think Matt Moore will do just enough to squeak out a close victory

Score : Dolphins 17 Ravens 16
