New York Giants (4-7) at Miami Dolphins (5-7)

Sunday, December 5, 1PM ET

Both of these teams are coming off wins in Week 12, but those wins were not equal. The New York Giants relied solely on their defense, while the Miami Dolphins played a better all-around game that led to a dominant victory. I see something similar happening in Week 13.

I just don’t have any confidence in this Giants team right now. Daniel Jones hasn’t proven himself to be the franchise quarterback he was drafted to be, and the rest of his offensive playmakers aren’t pulling their weight either. If it wasn’t for the New York defense, there’s a good chance they’d be even worse than 4-7 at this point in the season.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins are riding a four-game winning streak and seem determined to make a run at the postseason. Tua Tagovailoa has developed tremendous chemistry with his receivers, particularly Jaylen Waddle. To top it off, the Miami defense has played well down the stretch as well, which makes me believe in this team’s potential.

The Dolphins get another valuable win as they aim for one of the final playoff spots in the AFC. As for the Giants, they get another reminder that they aren’t quite ready to compete.

Prediction: Dolphins win 33-24 | Spread: Dolphins (-3)
