On paper there are a number of similarities between the two teams. On the field, the Dolphins have found a way to win some of their closer games. The Cardinals have been bitten by the close games.
Las Vegas has the Cardinals as two-point favorites, which is interesting considering the Cardinals are 1-4 on the road so far this season. The Dolphins are 5-1 at home. The only home loss this season was to the up-and-coming Tennessee Titans.
Look for a close game, particularly if any rain comes the way of Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday. As long as the Cardinals don’t beat themselves with costly penalties and turnovers, they should be there at the end. Of course as we’ve seen this season, easier said than done.
In the end, the Cardinals should be able to come away with a victory. They looked like a different team last Sunday. Actually, they looked more like the 2015 Cardinals and what we expected out of them this season. Continue on the mission to run the table. Cardinals 27 Dolphins 24
