After a nice bounce-back shut-out win over the New York Jets, our Miami Dolphins play at home again this week to face a good Dallas Cowboys team. Miami will need another win today if they wish to keep their two-game lead over the Buffalo Bills. The Bills played last evening, defeating the Los Angeles Chargers, 24 to 22. The Dolphins also need the win this afternoon as they are not yet mathematically assured a spot in the AFC playoffs. Next weekend Miami will travel for their final away game of the regular season to take on the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens currently hold the first place in the AFC playoff seedings. Miami sits one game back of the Ravens before today's and tomorrow’s games. Following next week's game Miami will return home for the season finale to face the Buffalo Bills. That final game against Buffalo could very well be the game that determines who will be crowned the 2023 AFC East champion.

The Cowboys enter this game with an identical record to Miami having already secured a spot in the NFC playoffs. Despite locking in their spot for the postseason Dallas still has plenty of motivation to win today's game. Dallas is currently in first place in their division, the NFC East, but holds an identical record to the second-place team in their division, the Philadelphia Eagles. Dallas is also chasing the San Francisco 49ers for the top playoff seed in the NFC. The 49ers come into this week owning both a one-game lead over the Cowboys and a head-to-head victory over Dallas. Dallas is also looking to shake the same narrative that is attached to the Dolphins, that neither team can win against top-tier teams or teams with records over .500.
