Miami Dolphins Hoping for Another Win on the Road

The Dolphins are 11-4 on the season, winning four of their last five games. In their most recent game, they beat the Dallas Cowboys 22-20 with kicker Jason Sanders scoring the winning field goal in the final seconds of the game.

It was Miami’s seventh win on home turf in 2023, but what about their record on the road? Well, playing away from home has been their problem this season.

The Dolphins are 4-3 on the road, with their wins happening only against teams that are currently under .500 – the Washington Commanders (4-11 record), New York Jets (6-9), New England Patriots (4-11), and Los Angeles Chargers (5-10).

Baltimore Ravens to Book the No. 1 Seed

The Ravens are 12-3, which is one more win than the Dolphins, who are currently second in the AFC. As there are only two more games left to be played, winning on Sunday would practically mean booking the No. 1 spot in the conference.

So, can they do it? Well, their recent form sure is giving them a lot of confidence. They won their last five games, even though their schedule was pretty tough. This goes especially for their most recent game, which saw them beat the 49ers 33-19 on the road.

The Ravens entered that game as seven-point underdogs but ended up winning by 14 points. Quarterback Lamar Jackson was brilliant, throwing for 252 yards and two touchdowns. Still, it’s Baltimore’s defense that stole the show by recording four interceptions against San Francisco’s QB Brock Purdy, as well as one against Sam Darnold.

Miami Dolphins vs. Baltimore Ravens Week 17 Prediction

The Miami Dolphins are the No. 1 offense in the league, but we just can’t see them do much against the NFL’s best defense. The Baltimore Ravens’ defensive team will stop them, and Lamar Jackson & Co. will wreak havoc on Miami’s defense, meaning that the host should cover the -3.5-point spread.

Pick: Baltimore Ravens -3.5
