    The Rams pose the worst offense in the league without Amendola. You're ranked 30th on offense and you're 32nd without him. Dolphins pose the best Run D in the league, averaging just 2.7 YPC against. Not even Houston could run on us with just 83 yards on 35 carries, and that was on the road. Stephen jackson is old and not what he once was, you won't be able to get yards on us on the ground. Making your offense one dimensional, this is where miami will get some turnovers with the pressure on bradford and your poor receiving targets (have to say i liked Givens in the draft but that's hardly going to put the rams over the top).

    Dolphins are heading into a BYE WEEK and will probably play very hard knowing they have some days off coming shortly. Jabar Gaffney will be active allowing Miami to run 3 and 4 WR sets extending the Rams defense attacking their 3rd and 4th CB's. Lamar Miller will be seeing more action (with D Thomas out) and he has been running the ball like Reggie Bush this year when he's in.

    The Dolphins have been good at attacking linebackers in this west coast offense creating matchup advantages (though could be a little better making it perfect), and the LB play for the Rams is poor overall as a unit. The Rams are just horrible on the road, if it was in St Louis I'd worry a bit more as the Rams play much better there. Don't see the Dolphins losing at home this week to a Rams team after the way their last home game went, by really outplaying the Jets only to lose the way they did in OT.

    Miami's headed into a bye week and they're home, will be ready to play bringing them to .500 and feeling good about themselves. The Rams are not a balanced team like the dolphins, they're not better than miami overall. and they are certainly not 2 games better than the dolphins, both teams will be 3-3 late Sunday afternoon.

    Miami wins by 2 scores imo
    I approve this message.

    Rams at Dolphins

    MDS’s take: Hardly anyone has noticed it, but the Dolphins’ defense is actually quite good. Miami will put a lot of pressure on Sam Bradford and win a low-scoring game.
    MDS’s pick: Dolphins 14, Rams 10.

    Florio’s take: Arguably the best game of the weekend, Rams coach Jeff Fisher gets a shot at the team he spurned. With tough defenses and underrated offenses, the Miami offense should be able to do more against the St. Louis defense than vice-versa, given the absence of Danny Amendola.
    Florio’s pick: Dolphins 14, Rams 12.

    he predicted us to score 14 pts, i think thats a season high for him so far.

    i guarantee we score more than 14 pts. his hatred for miami is so obvious

The Ram's don't have that #1 receiver so they are forced to spread the ball around (I guess as much as a low-powered offense can). Not really any specific person for Smith to "shut down" on Sunday. I also see a lot about the Dolphin's running game, but Bush has had 36 carries for 114 total, in the last two games. Somehow I don't see the Rams selling out to stop Bush.

    Personally, I think the Dolphins will get a TD and a couple field goals and win. Rams will probably score 10. But I do think it will be close, so if someone has some insight on how the Rams will get beaten handily, or some serious match up disadvantage I'm missing, I'd love to know.
    You're completely right. The Dolphins aren't good enough for this to be a "guaranteed" win. We lost to the Jets when we should not have.

    Having said that - I think the Dolphins should beat the Rams if they perform with the intensity that they have lately.

    We're not to the point, where I expect us to roll through anyone.

    Rams are playing tough football, but I think the match ups favor Miami.

    14-10
    14-12

    I suppose that significantly more points than a touchdown and two field goals right?

    OH...MY...GOODNESS! I would like to have a cage match with Florio...for charity of course...but no holds barred.

    Yea, he tends to bring that out of most people that read or hear what he has to say.

    Rams currently getting beat on the road by and average of 25-14.5
    Rams have lost 5 straight on the road dating back to last year.
    Bradford is 3-12 for his career on the road.

    There are many more. Only way Miami loses is if we beat ourselves with turnovers.

    Appreciate your posts, can tell you're a knowledgable fan, but must say with you being positive things must be looking up.
    The way Jeff Ireland took a GM's dream worth of cap space and draft picks and made the team worse in borderline miraculous.
