The Miami Dolphins enter their week 13 game with the Washington Commanders as heavy favorites. The Dolphins have taken care of business against teams lower in the standings this season and the Commanders have struggled at times this season. Ron Rivera took over defensive coordinator duties after firing Jack Del Rio, so it will be interesting to see how Rivera attacks this fast Dolphins offense. Offensively, the Commanders have a pretty decent aerial attack with Sam Howell at quarterback. Their offense gives them a chance to hang around in this game.

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