The Dolphins are the complete opposite of the norm. They win on the road, but struggle at home. The struggling Bengals will square off against the Fins in Cincinnati tomorrow. Miami is 3-0 on the road, but are a winless 0-3 at home.
Miami quarterback Chad Henne has emerged as one of the more underrated signal callers in the league. Of course when you have an athletic and mammoth target to throw to in Brandon Marshall, it makes the job a bit easier. Henne is completing 63.1% of his passes, and has thrown eight touchdowns. He does have six interceptions.
Generating pressure has become a huge problem on the Bengals defensive side of the ball. Led by LT Jake Long, the Dolphins possess one of the better pass blocking offensive lines in football. Will someone on the defensive line emerge for Cincinnati, and bring the heat to Henne?
Last week it seemed like Marvin Lewis wanted to run the ball more, but once the Bengals got down big fairly early on in the game Benson wasn’t called upon as much.
PREDICTION- 31-22 Miami
The Bengals defense has struggled big time as of late. The offense has looked better over the last couple of weeks. Cincinnati desperately needs a win, but I just don’t see it.

I currently work for the Sports Network. It's the best job ever! I am a 2010 graduate of Temple University where I majored in broadcast journalism, I LOVE SPORTS! That's why I am here. I have a vast knowledge and want to share my athletic intelligence with the world. Some people like to spend their time shooting down aliens in Halo; I like to spend my time watching sports, current and old. It's my passion! I got asked one time how I can watch a game over again when I already know the outcome. 5 minutes later, he's watching Happy Gilmore reciting all of the lines from the movie. Hypocrite! As for my favorite sports teams, I've been a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan. My favorite athlete is Allen Iverson. He didn't like practice that much, but when it came to gametime, no one let it all out on the floor like Iverson. He is absolutely beloved in the city of Brotherly Love. For college athletics, obviously I pay close attention to Temple. (Yes, football too) Even before I stepped foot on Temple's campus for the 1st time in 2005, I was a fan. Oh the good old days of John Chaney! Some other tidbits about myself, I love cheesesteaks, I hydrate myself with Welch's Grape Juice and Snapple. I love the HBO show Entourage. Also, when is Kenny Powers making his much anticipated return in Eastbound and Down!
