Thursday Night Football – WKIV (Dolphins v Bengals)

The 1-2 Miami Dolphins head north to battle the 1-2 Cincinnati Bengals exclusively on the NFL Channel tonight at 8:25 pm. The Dolphins lead the head-to-head series 15-5 and have taken the last three games from the Bengals.

Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill has never lost to the Bengals. Tannehill threw for 319 yards and 3 TDs last week and with the help of wideout Jarvis Landry (who leads the entire AFC with 314 rec. yards) is shooting for three straight games with 300+ yards. Free safety Rashad Jones and linebacker Kiko Alonso are number two and three in combined tackles so far this year and look to up those numbers against a potent Bengals offense tonight.

Cincinnati single caller Andy Dalton leads the AFC with 938 pass yards. The Bengals balanced attack also features running back Jeremy Hill who scored 2 TDs last week and has 10 rushing TDs in past 11 games (incl. playoffs). Fellow tailback Giovani Bernard contributed 104 yards from scrimmage and two rushing TDs the last time these two teams met. Bengals receiver A.J. Green trails Lanrdy by only 19 yards for the AFC receiving lead and has proven nearly un-coverable this season.

Expect a high scoring affair as these two teams battle it out for the second win to pull back to .500 and remain a factor in their tough divisions.
