The Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Ravens have history against each other. The Ravens have been a thorn in Miami’s side for years. Even though the teams have faced each other 13 times, the series is tit for tat and stands at 7-6 Baltimore. Miami has never won at M&T Bank Stadium they’re currently riding a six-game win streak.

Baltimore is one of the top defenses in the league and always challenges Miami to do better. Whether it’s in the playoffs or regular season, when the two teams play the Dolphins often have to come with everything they’ve got.
Miami has found ways to win as a unit under rookie head coach Adam Gase. When the running game is healthy, Miami pounds the football. If the running game stalls, they hand the ball to quarterback Ryan Tannehill to beat teams through the air.
Even on special teams, the Dolphins are the only team in the NFL with both a kickoff and a punt return for a touchdown. Miami has played as a whole and when one guy isn’t producing another player steps up. That’s an Adam Gase lead team. The Ravens will just have to find a way to cool them off.
Baltimore is struggling on offense and needs to face a team like Miami who hasn’t quite found their identity on defense. Even on games, they’re surging in, the defense often breaks down late or can’t stop either the run. When they can halt the run, defenders struggle in the passing game.
The Dolphins defense won’t just lie down and die through. Baltimore will need to find a rhythm. Even though the Dolphins let up too many yards, they’re awfully stingy on the goal line. If the Ravens want to win, they’ll have to finish quality plays in the red zone.
Game time is scheduled for 1 pm EST, 10 am PT.
