Losers of three straight games, the Miami Dolphins look to end their skid. All they have to do is knock off the defending Super Bowl champions.
Since knocking off the Patriots in Foxborough in Week 1, it’s been all downhill for Brian Flores’ team. The Miami Dolphins have dropped three straight games – including a pair of home setbacks to the Bills (3-0) and Colts (27-17), respectively. While they won’t be traveling far, the club makes its way to Tampa to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers.
And the Dolphins will be seeing a very familiar face in veteran quarterback Tom Brady, who made 35 career starts vs. Miami while he was employed by the Patriots.
5. WR Devante Parker scores 2 touchdowns
ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques reported Miami will be without deep threat Will Fuller this week after he suffered a broken finger (according to NFL Network) in the 27-17 loss to Indianapolis.
The Buccaneers’ secondary has been very vulnerable this year – especially due to the fact that they are banged up at cornerback. Fuller is among the best in the league when it comes to stretching the field but injuries have been an issue throughout his career.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that both rookie Jaylen Waddle and/or veteran Devante Parker won’t take advantage of the 32nd-ranked pass defense in the league. Along with allowing the most aerial yardage in the NFL, the Bucs have already surrendered 11 touchdown passes.
