Tannehill, Dolphins look to continue surge vs. Ravens

Tannehill, Dolphins look to continue surge vs. Ravens

The J-Train has been sidetracked of late.

DeVante Parker, Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills all have at least one fourth-quarter touchdown during the six-game winning streak: Stills had a 66-yarder in the 28-25 victory over Buffalo, Landry had a 10-yarder against Los Angeles and Parker had a 9-yard game-winner in the same game.

In the teams history the Dolphins have run the table eight times.

The Dolphins under coach Joe Philbin went 8-8 in each of their two seasons with Wallace. They play away against the Baltimore Ravens this week, home against the reeling Arizona Cardinals in week 14, away against the New York Jets, away against the Buffalo Bills, and finally play the Patriots at home in week 17. He hit that number right on the button at MetLife Stadium six weeks ago, but it took him 30 carries to do it. "My whole time was good until the last game". "I think we are just getting more consistent across the board". "We've really turned around as far as a maturity standpoint of our younger guys doing things right (and) our veterans doing a good job of showing these guys the right way to do things day in and day out". "We are starting games better, I think". However, he went down during last Sunday's game against the 49ers and never returned to the game. The Dolphins like to get Tannehill outside the pocket and take advantage of his ability to throw accurately on the move.

The biggest challenge for the Ravens will likely be stopping the ground attack of Miami, led by running back Jay Ajayi, who leads the National Football League with 730 rushing yards during his team's six-game winning streak.

"It was a frustrating incident where you wanted to do well and wanted the team to do well, and it just wasn't going that way", he said. I would've expected him to have a solid season, but he hasn't gotten as many looks as he did before his hip injury.

OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams and is a near-perfect 4-0-1 in the Ravens' last five games overall. With 204 yards against Pittsburgh and 214 against Buffalo, he changed the entire personality of the Miami offense. "The way the organization is run is more my speed here".

The bad news, though not unexpected, was the continued non-practicing from Mike Pouncey.

Left tackle Branden Albert practiced with a cast on his dislocated left wrist, and it appears he'll be medically cleared to play against the Ravens.

"Obviously, you have to be smart and not put yourself in harm's way too much, " he said. "The coaches believe in me, and they're giving me an opportunity to make plays". That's obvious based on some of the huge games Jay has had. Miami doesn't have as stout an offensive line as Dallas, but Ajayi is a "special" running back, according to outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.

There's no use bringing any other mind-set into these rumbles with the Ravens. If Ajayi (847 yards, 5.3 per carry) gets going, it could be a long day for the Ravens.

As for the eventual winning margin, you'll probably like this. The Ravens run defense is one of the best in the league so it's best for you to keep Ajayi on the bench this week.
