Dolphins Player to Watch: Ryan Tannehill
Ryan Tannehill has led the Dolphins to a 3-0 record and has completed 66.4 percent of his passes in that time. He has led Miami to touchdowns in seven of its eight red zone appearances. He has been sacked a league high 14 times and will need to get some help from the running game and offensive line.
Saints Player to Watch: Drew Brees
Drew Brees has thrown for at least 300 yards in the last 8 consecutive games. He had 342 passing yards last week and will look to top the 300 yard mark once again.
Matchup to Watch: Saints Passing Game vs Miami Dolphins Defense
The Saints are ranked 4th in the league passing the ball. They can’t run the ball at all, but they will toss that rock around like nobody’s business. Jimmy Graham has been a huge contributor on offense with 19 catches for 313 yards and 3 touchdowns in the last 2 games. The Miami Dolphins could be without Cameron Wake in the game also and that will give Drew Brees more time to throw the football.
The Saints will continue their high flying aerial attack on the Miami Dolphins. It will be a close battle throughout, but the Saints will pull it out at the end.
Saints 31, Dolphins 27.
