The Miami Dolphins will be looking to get their second straight win when they take on the Detroit Lions today for their week 8 showdown. The Lions may be a one win team, but that doesn’t mean the Dolphins should take them lightly. Actually, you should never underestimate your opponent. The Dolphins have a very beat up secondary and the Lions have shown that they can put up plenty of points. We should expect the Dolphins offense to be able to keep up with the Lions if they want to get into a shootout. But it will be up to the defense to create some turnovers again, like they did last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

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