The Arizona Cardinals, coming off a fairly comfortable win over the Washington Redskins last week, take on the Miami Dolphins who were completely dominated by the Ravens in their last game.
The Dolphins were on quite the winning streak but came up against a solid defense last week and really were dominated eventually losing 38-6. Miami is going to have a difficult time making the playoffs and really need to be in win every game mode if they want to have a shot at the post season. Tannehill has had what amounts to another season to forget and you really have to wonder how much longer the Dolphins want to stick with a QB that does not always give them the best chance to win.
The Cardinals are 5-6-1 on the season and really have to win out to have any sort of shot at making the playoffs. Arizona has been all over the place this season but have some sort of shot if they can get things heading in the right direction right now. Arizona has a defense that is capable of being elite and if Carson Palmer can throw the ball to players on his team things could continue to go well for them.
Take the Cardinals in this one as their defense is going to give trouble to Miami and their incredibly inconsistent offense.
