    BENGALS KEYS TO VICTORY:
    1. STOP THE RUN
    Miami has the #1 rushing attack in the NFL. Lamar Miller has been solid, but the Dolphins also like to use Daniel Thomas and Ryan Tannehill, and all three will get carries in this game. Bengals need to force Tannehill into 3rd and long early and often.
    2. ESTABLISH THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE
    Miami's strength lies in its defensive line. Not only are they #1 in rush defense, they also have HK's sack leader in Cameron Wake and a dangerous rookie end in Dion Jordan. Cincinatti needs to win the battle in the trenches and slow down Wake, Jordan and Starks. This team thrives in pass rush situations.

    3. WIN TURNOVER BATTLE
    In most high level games such as this, whoever wins the turnover battle wins the game. Lately, Miami has been great about holding onto the ball and it seems as if Ryan Tannehill learned from his awful 3 interception game against Baltimore 3 weeks ago, as he hasn't had an interception since. The Bengals strong defense needs to force turnovers.


    DOLPHINS KEYS TO VICTORY:
    1. GET EVERYONE INVOLVED EARLY
    The Dolphins have relied very heavily on their running game as of late. The Bengals strength lies in stopping the run, as they are 3rd in the league in rush defense. Miami needs to keep Cincy off balance with a mix of run and pass to start this game. A one dimensional offense does not work in today's NFL.

    2. STOP ADRIAN PETERSON
    Very simple concept. The Bengals traded for the best running back of this generation, and they have been very successful using him. Miami's #1 rush defense will be put to the test. If they stop AP, they win the game. Easier said than done.

    3. GRIMES VS AJ GREEN
    Brent Grimes has been a shutdown corner this season for the Dolphins, handling the likes of Reggie Wayne, Roddy White and Marques Colston with ease. His biggest test to date, however, comes in this game against a phenom in AJ Green. Whoever wins this battle may just give their team the edge.


    WHO YA GOT AND WHY???

    Voted Bengals just because of all of the talent they have on their team.. they are a tough out for ANYONE.

    But, the Dolphins have been dominant so far and would be far from surprised if they shut down yet another offense.

    I played both teams. Got crushed by Miami and barely beat cincy 12-10. Miami's defense is very very tough in this game and mg users them well.

    Low scoring 17-13 game with Miami eeking out a victory due to their ability to handle ap.

    17-13 Cincy. You can't keep winning passing for 99 yards a game, can you?!

    Actually, I would say that's a good sign if you only have to pass for 99 yards a game. That means you are up or its a close game.

    Then again, I also throw less than 100 yards often.. sometimes because I am up, and other times just because I suck at throwing (and Jay Cutler sucks, just like last night vs Wayers and the Packers)
