The Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens clash Sunday afternoon in a crucial AFC NFL matchup at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Miami Dolphins look to keep the ball rolling and build on their incredible six-game winning streak. The Miami Dolphins also would stay in a AFC playoff spot with a victory. Ryan Tannehill is completing 66 percent of his passes for 2,574 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Tannehill has seven touchdown passes in his last three games. Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker have combined for 1,282 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Kenny Stills has 26 receptions. The Miami Dolphins ground game is averaging 116 yards per contest, and Jay Ajayi leads the way with 847 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Miami is allowing 21.8 points and 361.9 yards per game. Kiko Alonso leads the Miami Dolphins with 90 tackles, Ndamukong Suh has five sacks and Isa Abdul-Quddus has two interceptions.
The Baltimore Ravens look for their seventh victory to keep their current lead in the AFC North. The Baltimore Ravens have won three straight home games. Joe Flacco is completing 63.3 percent of his passes for 2,877 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Flacco has one or less touchdown passes in eight of his last nine games. Mike Wallace and Steve Smith Sr. have combined for 1,328 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Dennis Pitta has 52 receptions.

Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 18.3 points and 297.8 yards per game. Zachary Orr leads the Baltimore Ravens with 99 tackles, Terrell Suggs has eight sacks and C.J. Mosley has three interceptions.
TheDolphins are 0-11 ATS in their last 11 games in December and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Ravens are 5-15 ATS in their last 20 games in December and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Dolphins are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Baltimore Ravens haven't impressed me much this season and four of their six wins have come against teams with a losing record. Meanwhile, the Dolphins remain one of the hottest teams in the league and are oozing with confidence. Miami is also expected to get back two of its three injured offensive linemen. The Dolphins have yet to lose a game this season when their starting offensive line is intact. This line is just too much respect to a subpar Ravens team.
Give me the free field goal with the hook, but we may not need it.
