The Denver Broncos will be trying to snap their two-game losing streak when they face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. The Dolphins are coming off a 29-21 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in a game they were favored to win by 1.5 points. The Broncos are coming off a 37-12 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders as three-point underdogs.

Miami is 6-4 in its last 10 games against Denver.

 

Dolphins Going For Sixth Consecutive Win

The Dolphins have been on a roll over the past month and won their last five games, which has moved them one-game behind the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East standings. They will be trying to pick up their sixth win in a row and reduce their distance in the division standings with a win over the Broncos on Sunday.

 

Miami has done well offensively, averaging 27.9 points per game. The team is throwing for 219.4 yards and rushing for 98.7 yards per game.

Tua Tagovailoa has done well since he took over the starting job, completing 63.6 percent of his passes for 519 yards and five touchdowns. He also hasn’t thrown an interception, which was something that plagued former starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, who threw seven interceptions in six games.

Myles Gaskin leads the team with 387 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while DeVante Parker leads the team with 462 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

Miami has also played well defensively, giving up 20.2 points per game. They held their last four opponents to 17.5 points per game and will be hard to beat if they keep playing well defensively.

 

Broncos Going For Second Consecutive Home Win

The Broncos have struggled in recent weeks, losing three of their last four games. They are coming off two consecutive road losses and will try to put an end to the streak and pick up their second consecutive home win when they face the Dolphins on Sunday.

 

Denver has struggled offensively, averaging 20.7 points per game. The team is averaging 227.4 passing yards and 106.6 rushing yards per game.

Drew Lock has completed 55 percent of his passes for 1,497 yards, seven touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He suffered some bruising to his ribs in their last game and is doubtful to play in this game. If he is unable to go, Brett Rypien, who has completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions this season, will likely get the start.

Melvin Gordon III leads the team with 439 rushing yards and four touchdowns, while Jerry Jeudy leads the team with 552 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Defensively, the Broncos haven’t played well, giving up 28.2 points per game. They have given up at least 30 points in each of their last four games and will need to turn things around if they want to beat the Dolphins.
