#9 – Miami (9/30), ‘Phin for Yourself’
***Prime Time Matchup***
Many people scratched their heads on this one. I mean, really? This is a good Monday Night Football matchup? It’s actually my most underrated matchup of the Saints season. Why? The Dolphins (7-9) made a ton of changes, mainly on offense, and we’re supposed to see a different team this season. When you peel back the layers, I think you may see what I mean as well. This will definitely be a different Miami team, and I’m not just talking about the uniforms. They made a serious effort to push for some contention against the Patriots, and they would be my vote for most improved team in that division for the offseason.
Take this with a grain of salt, but the Saints have not lost on Monday Night Football since 2008 (and need I actually remind you of that Vikings game?). While the Dolphins faces may be changed, you never can discount the Dome Field Advantage.
Final Prediction: Saints 31, Dolphins 14
