Miami Dolphins squeak by Vikings for big win

This is a game that could be one of those overtime surprises. Miami should be playing well and the Vikings are a bit of a question mark and I’m not sure they are ready to put a claim in for the NFC North.

In 2021, the Vikings finished 8-9, and this year, they should be able to improve but this is a game that fans of the Vikings will point at as a game that got away from them.

By now the national media will either be all over Tua Tagovailoa or quietly keeping their mouths shut but this could also be the game that sees Teddy Bridgewater start if the season isn’t going well at this point. It would be appropriate given he was drafted by the Vikings.

Most of the talk around the Vikings is always about Kirk Cousins and fans and media alike can’t figure out if he is closer to being elite or being forgotten. He posts good numbers statistically but his play has yet to elevate the team. There are problems on defense and offense alike and this year won’t see but a game or two change.

Miami heads into Minnesota and continues their success in 2022 with their fifth win in the young season.
