- Dolphins - QB Chad Pennington (3rd), WR Roberto Wallace, CB Nolan Carroll, LB Channing Crowder, DE Jared Odrick, LB Ikaika Alama-Francis, OT Lydon Murtha and OL Jermey Parnell
- Vikings - RB Albert Young, CB Cedric Griffin, CB Chris Cook, DT Jimmy Kennedy, QB Joe Webb, OL Chris DeGeare, TE Mickey Shuler and DL Everson Griffen
With Tyler Thigpen listed as the #2 quarterback today, the Dolphins will have the option of using some version of the spread offense - which they have been practicing. The other interesting note is that Paul Solisi will start at nose tackle while Randy Starks moves over to defensive end, starting in place of the injured Jared Odrick. I guess some beat reporters who kept shooting this idea down all week will eat a little crow today.
The Dolphins will look to go 2-0 for the first time since 2002. They will also look to win their first two road games since they accomplished that feat back in 2003 - completing the Meadowlands sweep by knocking off the Jets in week two and then the Giants in week four.
Today let's hope for a fast start and some vintage Brett Favre turnovers.
