Get to Favre hard and early – the old man can only take so much abuse. Knock him out of those Wranglers.
Establish the running game – Minnesota has a tough D line. We have to find a way past them. If it’s not working, we have to be confident in the passing game.
Stop Adrian Peterson – The Dolphins effectively took C.J. Spiller out of the game, but Spiller is no Peterson. Peterson is a workhorse back that can do major damage. Neutralizing Peterson puts more pressure on Favre and his Sidney Rice-less receiving corps. Getting Peterson to fumble and capitalizing on those turnovers will be a deciding factor in this game.
Stay consistent – The Dolphins have gained notoriety for playing well until late in the game, then falling apart. The team must find a way to stay strong all game in order to pull out the big win.
