The Miami Dolphins are 11-4 on the season and in position to clinch the AFC East division title and move into the top seed in the AFC playoff picture with a Week 17 win. Standing in their way are their non-divisional rivals the Baltimore Ravens, currently the top team in the AFC. The Dolphins and Ravens seem to face each other every year despite being in the AFC East and AFC North, respectively. This year’s contest may be more meaningful than any of the previous 16 regular season meetings.

The Dolphins come into today’s game with the number one scoring offense in the league. The Ravens have the number one scoring defense this season. Something has to give as the top two teams in the AFC face off. Who are the Dolphins facing in the 2023 version of the Ravens? We got an insider look at the Ravens from Baltimore Beatdown this week.

Miami is coming off a Week 16 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The win kept Miami two games ahead of the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East, setting up this week’s possibility to claim the division title for the first time since 2008, with either a Dolphins win or a Bills clinching the championship. If the Dolphins lose today and the Bills win, the Week 18 meeting between the two teams will be for the division title.

The Ravens faced the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16, a Monday Night Football meeting between the top teams from each conference. Baltimore made it look easy as they dispatched the 49ers 33-19, establishing themselves as the Super Bowl favorites.

Miami did not receive the best news overnight. After ruling wide receiver Jaylen Waddle out of this game with an ankle injury, it now appears running back Raheem Mostert will be inactive due to ankle and knee injuries. The Miami offense will have to quickly adapt to missing two of their top weapons as they face a Ravens defense that has made shutting down opposing offenses the norm this year.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the line for this game has hovered right at three points all week, favoring the Ravens. The point total is set at 46.5 combined points while the Dolphins are +140 for the straight-up win and the Ravens are -166 on the moneyline.
