Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers, they are still undefeated and I thought the Titans were going to pull off the victory here but was proven wrong. I also didn’t see Washington laying the smackdown on the Cowboys the way that they did. Those would be the two I got wrong in an otherwise perfect week.
The big news heading into Week 8 is of course the surprise announcement that Tua Tagovailoa will be starting for the Miami Dolphins. Many people in the media have questioned this move, saying the Dolphins were winning and Ryan Fitzpatrick was playing great football. At 3-3 this does seem like a peculiar move by Coach Brian Flores, but if there is one thing I’ve learned about Coach Flores thus far, its to trust his judgement.
I do not for one second think that pressure came from the GM or Owner. I think Coach Flores was waiting for the bye week, and the bye week came much earlier than anticipated due to some rescheduling because of COVID-19. I, like many Dolphins fans have been excited to see Tua and its ironic that now that its happening, the fan base is divided.
So I am going to go bold here and say the Dolphins come off with an upset of a win against the Rams. I think Tua and the Fins catch the Rams by surprise and beat them 31-17. Think I’m crazy? I’m really just doubling down with what I put up on Twitter
With that said .. lets get down to business.
