NFL Game Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Miami Dolphins

Ricky WilliamsThe game this week between the Steelers and Dolphins features two playoff hopefuls, both coming off of big wins. The Dolphins were able to go into Lambeau Field and upset the Green Bay Packers, edging them by three points in overtime. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh welcomed back Big Ben, and he delivered a three touchdown performance in a drubbing of the rival Browns. As the two face off in Miami, it is a game that can catapult both teams to higher ground in the AFC.

Why To Bet On The Steelers

In a season where the majority of NFL teams appear to be very close in record and talent, it is the Steelers who are emerging to many as the best team in the NFL. And for good reason. The team was able to go 3-1 without a passing offense and has the best defense in the NFL. The passing game is back, and Big Ben’s performance will only help the Steelers power running attack get more room to operate. No changes with the defense, which is one of the most feared units in the NFL. The Steelers should be able to attack and deny the Miami passing and rushing game.

Why To Bet on the Dolphins

The Dolphins are going to want to take their home field advantage back, as their last Northbet game in Miami was a brutalization at the hands of New England. Chad Henne is beginning to look like a potential NFL elite quarterback and has been able to develop a strong connection with Brandon Marshall. If the Dolphins are going to win this game, they are going to need to move the chains and control the clock with their two running backs Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown. They have been good enough defensively to pressure Ben into some bad decisions.

How the Game Will Play Out

While I like Miami at home, it is tough to find a reason to pick against the Steelers the way that they have been going this season thus far. The Steelers are not going to be taking this game lightly, as matchups against New Orleans and New England follow. They view this a must win, and they will.
