Thursday Pick Em: Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots
NFL fans get ready, Thursday Night Football is back!
This week we have an action packed contest, as the Miami Dolphins take on the New England Patriots. Worried about who to choose in your pick em leagues? Have no fear! I am here to give you a quick breakdown on the teams and give you a heads up on who to choose as your winner in survival pools.
The Miami Dolphins are on the uptrend since firing coach Joe Philbin two weeks ago.
Miami has simplified things on offense and have went with a more aggressive ground and pound game. Since they have revamped their offensive approach, Dolphins running back Lamar Smith has come alive. When they pass the ball, Ryan Tannehill has been extremely effective in hitting his guys down the field.
The New England Patriots have been clicking on all cylinders since day one. Tom Brady has been dynamic in the passing game. When they build a strong lead, they feed their bruising running back Lagarette Blount who is virtually unstoppable in the red zone. The Patriots have also been incredibly solid on defense as well.
While Miami has the talent to be one of the better teams in the NFL in the 2nd half of the season, I doubt they will be able to slow down New England at home.
