Dolphins Hoping For Playoff Push
The Miami Dolphins currently have the seventh best record in the American Football Conference. That means that they are still in with a chance of reaching the playoffs at the end of the season. However, they can not afford any slip ups between now and the end of the season. Miami have won on seven occasions this season and have lost just four times.
Defensively they are one of the best teams in the AFC, as they have only allowed 205 points against them. Only the Ravens and the Steelers have better defensive records. However, the fact that they have been beaten four times this season will give the Bengals some kind of confidence coming into this match.
The Dolphins have won three of their last four in the NFL, with their only defeat during this run coming against the Denver Broncos in their last home game. They recovered from that defeat with a win against the New York Jets in their last game. Miami won that game 20-3, with Ryan Fitzpatrick completing 257 passing yards. The touchdowns in the win were scored by Adam Shaheen and Mike Gesicki.
Bengals Looking To End Losing Run
It has been a difficult season to this point for the Bengals, as they sit at the bottom of the AFC North. They sit 24th overall in the AFC, as they have won just twice this season. They are among the lowest scorers in the league this season, as they have scored just 230 points. Their biggest issues have come on the road this season, as they are yet to win and have lost on five occasions.
The Bengals will come into this match having lost their last three, which has included defeats against the Steelers, Washington and the Giants. That defeat against the Giants was their last outing, as they were narrowly beaten 19-17. Brandon Allen completed 136 passing yards in the defeat, while Tee Higgins scored the only touchdown for the Bengals.
Recent Meetings Between Sides
This will be the sixth time that these sides have come up against each other since 2010. The Dolphins hold the advantage, as they have won on four occasions. Cincinnati have won on two occasions, with their most recent victory against the Dolphins coming back in 2018. The last meeting was won by the Dolphins 38-35 in OT in December last year.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Miami Dolphins Picks
The recent meetings have all been high scoring affairs, but that will be difficult to predict this year, as the Dolphins have been excellent defensively. This will be a must-win game for the Dolphins, and we expect them to get the win.
