The Line: Philadelphia Eagles -6 -- Over/Under: 46.5
The Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles square off Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Miami Dolphins could use a big road win after losing five of their last seven games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 64.2 percent of his passes for 2,237 yards, 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Tannehill has zero touchdown passes in his last two games. Rishard Matthews and Jarvis Landry have combined for 1,089 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Kenny Stills has 16 receptions. The Miami Dolphins ground game is averaging 103.3 yards per contest, and Lamar Miller leads the way with 478 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Miami is allowing 25.8 points and 384.5 yards per game. Reshad Jones leads the Dolphins with 74 tackles, Ndamukong Suh has three sacks and Brent Grimes has nine pass deflections. DeVante Parker and Jordan Kovacs are questionable.
The Philadelphia Eagles need this victory to get a game above a .500 record. Sam Bradford is completing 62.9 percent of his passes for 2,061 yards, 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Bradford has two touchdown passes in his last three games. Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz have combined for 845 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Miles Austin has 12 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 121.6 yards per contest, and Ryan Mathews leads the way with 409 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Philly is allowing 20.5 points and 366.8 yards per game. Malcolm Jenkins leads the Eagles with 52 tackles, Fletcher Cox has five sacks and Nolan Carroll II has seven pass deflections. Brandon Bair, Jason Peters and DeMeco Ryans are questionable.
The Dolphins are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in November and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Eagles are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games in November and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on grass. The Dolphins are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Dolphins are starting to look like the same team they were under former coach Joe Philbin, as the fire and passion is gone. With the Eagles slowly starting to play to their potential and picking up wins, this game could really get ugly. I like the Eagles to win this game rather easily and cover the reasonable number.
