Miami Vs. Detroit NFL Week 10 Gambling TrendsNoah Williams
The hottest team in the NFL no one is talking about is the Miami Dolphins and they will look their fourth straight victory when they visit Ford Field to clash against the Detroit Lions, this Sunday at 1 PM ET, in NFL week 10 matchup broadcasted by CBS.
Miami is third in the AFC East with five wins and three losses, but their 37-0 victory over the San Diego Super Chargers last week at home was as impressive as it gets. The defense held the Chargers to a season low 178 combined yards as they racked up 441. Miami’s defense allowed a mere 138 passing yards from QB Philip Rivers, plus they intercepted him three times. The offense looked just as good with QB Ryan Tannehill completing 24 of 34 passes for 288 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs.
Detroit is coming off a bye week, but they are on top of the NFC North with a 6-2 record, and there’s a great chance they will have back WR Calvin Johnson for this weekend after he missed the last three games with an ankle injury.
The Lions are 3-1 at home this season, but their only loss was against an AFC East team, the Buffalo Bills, in week five.

The New Miami Dolphins
Before the RB Knowshon Moreno got a season ending injury, the Dolphins were run first team and there were talks about benching QB Ryan Tannehill, until they changed to a read-option formation now the team is on fire. Since then the Dolphins have averaged 30.6 points over five games.
Since week 4, QB Ryan Tannehill has thrown 10 TDs and four interceptions, but has also run for at least 40 yards in each of the last four matchups on design plays by the new offensive scheme.
Now they face the well rested and healed Detroit Lions who have the 5th best defense against the pass and the second best against the run.
Is the Lions Offense On the Decline?
The Detroit Lions offensive line has been incredible disappointing this season as they have allowed 24 sacks, second most in the NFL. The line’s struggles have also affected their run game as the Lions have the second-worst rushing offense in the NFL, averaging only 79.6 yards per game.
Just in case you were wondering, the Miami Dolphins defense is 5th in sacks this season with 25 in eight games.
