Know your Eagles enemy: The Miami Dolphins

USATSI_13707625_168382939_lowres

History

The Eagles and Dolphins have met 14 times in their history, with the Dolphins winning eight times. Their last match up was in 2015, with the Dolphins winning 20-19.

Predictions

If the Eagles needed to face a team so badly to get their groove back, it’s these Miami Dolphins. Although the Dolphins have had some flashes of competence, it’s been a full season of ineptitude. I can’t see that team doing much against a team needing a win so badly to keep their division hopes alive. Eagles win 37-13.

Stat line predictions:

  • Wentz: 23/29 250 yards 2 touchdowns
  • Sanders: 15 rushes 90 yards 1 touchdown
  • Ajayi: 10 rushes 50 yards 1 touchdown
  • Arcega-Whiteside: 5 receptions 80 yards 1 touchdown
  • Jeffery: 4 receptions 60 yards 1 touchdown
  • Avery: sack
