The Dolphins are feeling awfully good about themselves as they are 9-5 and seem to be on the verge of one of the great turnarounds in NFL history – from 1-15 to the playoffs. Before they get ahead of themselves, they take on a Chiefs team that even at 2-12 has fought hard in enough games this year that they easily should have 5-6 wins. Take last week, as they could have closed out the Chargers with the recovery of an onside kick, but couldn’t get it done.
This week the Dolphins will come to town and try to lay the hammer down with a solid D ranked 11th, and an offense that is also close to top 10, ranked 11th in the league. They will look to run the ball early on the Chiefs 32nd ranked defense, and then let their defense do the work against Tyler Thigpen and that Chiefs offense.
KC will try to stretch the field and throw on the Dolphins, but have to be careful of the always rushing Joey Porter. I think the Dolphins will have enough on both sides of the ball to build a lead, and then shut down that Chiefs offense which under Thigpen has shown the ability to score. They won’t score enough though in this one.
