The Miami Dolphins kickoff against the New York Giants this afternoon. Normally, inter-conference meetings such as this one only happen every four years, but the Dolphins faced the Giants just two years ago. As part of the league’s expansion to a 17-game regular season, they added another inter-conference meeting, which, for Miami, means they are facing the Giants.
Miami enters this game looking to extend their current four-game winning streak. Miami has climbed from 1-7 on the season to their current 5-7 record, somehow turning a miserable early season into a team that is fighting their way back into playoff contention. Now, they host the Giants, who have not won two games in a row this season, are 4-7 on the season, and will be starting backup quarterback Mike Glennon. This is a game that, if they come out and execute, the Dolphins can win.
The line for the game, according to DraftKings Sportsbook, began with Miami favored by 2.5 points. Over the course of the week, to include the news that Glennon and not Daniel Jones would be starting at quarterback for New York, the line has moved to Miami being favored by six points.
