The Bengals are 3-1, and they are facing a Miami Dolphins team, that on paper they should be able to beat. However, this game screams of a trap game for the home Bengals. The Bengals have one of the best receivers in the league in AJ Green and he will have the pleasure of running wild against a banged up Phins secondary. Richard Marshall has already been declared inactive for the game, which means youngster Nolan Carroll will get the nod.
Phins news fans should not be surprised if we see at least one blown coverage, or at least one 50+ play that decimates our secondary. The key for the Dolphins defense is to be stingy on third downs, because sports gambling fans can bet the house that the Dolphins rush defense is going to shut down anything the Bengals have in the ground department. But the secondary, especially Carroll will need to be lights out on third downs so they can get off the field and give our offense a chance to win the game.
Another thing I will be watching for is the turnover battle. We need to hold onto the ball, because we can’t be constantly turning it over. Even if our defense can not create turnovers, we need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot and not turn the ball over. This also includes making field goal attempts, because in my book a missed field goal is the same as a turnover. It clearly changes the momentum of the game, and gives the other team good field position.
If the Dolphins can stay focused for an entire 60 minutes, then phins news fans might finally conclude a Sunday with a victory. I would suggest to sports gambling fans to wager on the Dolphins getting +3 for the game and also straight up to win on the money line at +150.
