Dolphins vs. Rams preview:
Miami is the hottest team in the NFL. Wait, what? The Dolphins have won four straight games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, and San Diego Chargers, and is now 5-4 on the season after a poor start. The offense is clicking, with at least 27 points scored in Miami’s last three games. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been serviceable, while running back Jay Ajayi has been a revelation for the Dolphins.
The Rams started out the season 3-1, but questions about how good they were abounded. Those questions were answered by Los Angeles’ four game losing streak to put the Rams at 3-5 on the season. However, the Rams found a team that was worse than it was last weekend when LA played the Jets in a horrible 9-6 contest.
The Dolphins and Rams have played each other 12 times, with the Dolphins holding a sizable 10-2 lead.
Dolphins vs. Rams prediction:
The Rams are not good and the Dolphins have been one of the hottest teams in the NFL over the past four weeks. From that statement alone, the Dolphins should walk away with a win.
But another factor should have Rams fans worried as well. Jared Goff is taking over the quarterback role, and will be playing for the first time this season.
