The Miami Dolphins are looking to win their fifth game of the season when they travel to take on the Detroit Lions this Sunday. It will feel like a little reunion, because standing on the Lions sideline at head coach will be Dan Campbell, who became a fan favorite when he took over as interim head coach when the Dolphins fired Joe Philbin early in the 2015 season. When Campbell took over with the Dolphins, the team had grit and never quit. We can expect to see a Lions team similar to that on Sunday. The Lions may be a one win team, but the Dolphins and their fans should not underestimate their opponent this Sunday.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
