As Week 11 approaches, the Miami Dolphins are 4-5 and facing a 2-7 Cowboys team this Sunday. Even though the Cowboys has dropped seven games in a row are hoping that changes with Tony Romo’s return since Week 2. The Dolphin’s secondary has had its struggle against the pass all year with allowing a 117.3 passer rating over the last three games. Look for that to change from a defense that fought and showed it has what it takes to come up with turnovers and fight to win the game. And with Romo not getting much practicing time, the Dolphins will look to exploit off his mistakes early due to his long absence. Brent Grimes is expected to return for this week so it is expected he will cover Dez Bryant, which is an exciting matchup. With the emergence of Reshad Jones in the secondary as well in the backfield this season, look for him to have another big game this Sunday at home. Jelani Jenkins will be out another week because of his ankle injury which is a loss due to he is the Dolphins leading tackler and Koa Misi as questionable. But look for Kelvin Sheppard to rally and take charge of this LB group and contain Darren McFadden.
With the next 5 out of 7 games being played at Sun Life Stadium, the Miami Dolphins are in a position to make the playoffs under interim coach Dan Campbell. Miami has not been in real good sync on offense starting off their games by early three and outs, miscommunication, and safeties. OC Bill Lazor will continue to run the ball with Lamar Miller and look for rookie RB Jay Ajayi to help out in the run game by having a solid week of practice. Also, another good thing going for the Miami Dolphins are their pair of WR’s in Jarvis Landry and Rishard Matthews. The duo are putting up some great numbers so far this season with 102 combined receptions and the best thing is they are healthy. Ryan Tannehill will continue to trust in those two receivers but lets not overlook Kenny Stills who has deep threat potential and could exploit a not so strong Cowboy’s secondary on Sunday. It will be another great game as the Miami Dolphins will try to carry momentum over from last week victory at Philadelphia and take one from interim head coach Dan Campbell’s former team in sunny South Florida as the Dallas Cowboys have won the last four out five meetings.
