The Miami Dolphins have only one Monday Night Football game this year and that will take place a week after they face the Jets when they travel to New Orleans.

On paper, this should be a game that Miami can win. The Saints wide receivers are average and Taysom Hill is not very consistent with his accuracy. What he does bring, however, is an ability to run the football and he loves to run the football. Miami will have to account for that in their game plan. Taking him out of the game is the key to winning.

If Miami can stop Hill, they will also have to stop one of the leagues best running backs, Alvin Kamara. Kamara is more than capable of running the football but the real danger comes from his contributions as a receiver out of the backfield.

The Dolphins are going to be tested in this game. If they are favored it will be close. Kamara is dangerous and while Hill is nothing special as a quarterback, he will keep the Dolphins on their heels and the front of the Dolphins defense honest. Miami will need someone, Jevon Holland, to shadow him.

This is another game the Dolphins should win and I expect them to do just that. The win will put Miami at 8 wins with two games to go and the toughest part of their schedule ahead.
