The Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs will face off tomorrow at Arrowhead Stadium for their wild card game. Temperatures for this game are expected to be below zero, so good luck if you are planning on attending in this tundra weather. The Dolphins enter this matchup so banged up on defense that they will be without their top three pass rushers, Xavien Howard, Jerome Baker, and potentially both of their starting safeties. Offensively they may be as full strength as they ever get as Raheem Mostert and Jaylen Waddle could be back in the lineup. The odds are stacked against the Dolphins as they haven’t proven that they can beat a playoff caliber team on the road this season.

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