Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins can end their NFL campaign on a high note with an upset win over the New England Patriots. That all depends on how QB Ryan Fitzpatrick plays. Against the Bengals, he finished with 419 passing yards, four touchdowns and an interception. However, also at stake is their positioning in the coming NFL Draft. A loss paired with a win by the New York Giants can improve their draft positioning. Their offense may not be enough, averaging only 18.6 points per contest. The Dolphins defense is not that better, allowing opponents 31.3 points per game.
