The Miami Dolphins will be looking to extend their winning streak to four games when they visit Baltimore to face the Ravens. With the Thursday’s kickoff rapidly approaching, let's examine what the experts are saying about this contest between AFC foes.

Prediction: Dolphins win 23-16
South Florida fans get their wish with Matt Moore taking over for the injured Jay Cutler. Moore made the best possible case for himself last week by bringing the Dolphins back to beat the Jets. Until further notice, the Ravens have to win games on defense and, probably, special teams. In their favor is their NFL-high (with the Jaguars) 10 interceptions. They might need to turn them all into points to compensate for their awful offense.

Prediction: Dolphins win 30-14
For the Dolphins, Moore's presence may elevate the offense. Cutler threw two touchdown passes vs. the Jets, but Miami mounted a 31-28 comeback victory with the backup under center.
Moore would play a squad that's lost four of its last five games. He's more than capable of extending the Dolphins' win streak to four games. In addition, running back Jay Ajayi should have a breakout performance against the worst run defense in yards allowed.

Prediction: Dolphins over Ravens
I'll take Miami on the road. On a short week, look for Adam Gase to lead with Jay Ajayi in this one. Through seven weeks, this Baltimore defense is giving up an average of 145.3 yards rushing per game. That's dead last in the NFL. Don't make this complicated: Run the ball, play defense, and get out of town with a win.
