The Miami Dolphins will have most of their players back for Sunday Night Football and they’re ready to get back in the win column.
There’s plenty of football left in the season, but tonight Miami is playing one of the biggest games of the season after losing three in a row.
The Steelers are an interesting game. Rookie Kenny Pickett who was in concussion protocol has been cleared, but will he actually start against Miami or will it be Mitch Trubisky?
Offensively, the Steelers have an excellent running back, Najee Harris, but his season so far hasn’t been a statistical bargain in production. Dionte Johnson may be the Steelers’ best receiver, but he has suffered statistically due to quarterback changes.
In many ways, the Steelers are like Miami in terms of running teams. After decades of quarterback stability, Pittsburgh is transitioning to the position and, as Miami fans know, sometimes that can’t go as planned.
Tonight will be a good test for Miami because the Steelers are a team they should be able to beat. The Steelers beat the Bengals in Week 1 but then lost to the Patriots, Browns, Jets and Bills before securing a shock victory over the Buccaneers last weekend.
Pittsburgh is riding high after this game, but they will face a Dolphins team that will have their starting quarterback healthy and starting. Miami has lost all three games Tua has been unable to complete this year.
Tonight’s game will only be the 4th time since NBC resumed broadcasting that the Dolphins played on a Sunday night.
