Who plays Thursday Night Football tonight week 10?
The Baltimore Ravens travel south to visit the Miami Dolphins in a game that sees two teams who have yet to find their stride facing off against each other
As is so often the case in the NFL, a team can be very solid and come away with the loss, or very shaky and still pull the win out of the hat. Thursday Night Football will see two teams who have been solid in one department and shaky in another, but with two opposing outcomes, square off in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. The Ravens have managed to overcome their shortcomings and are sitting astride the AFC North with a 6-2 record. For the Dolphins, their luck has not been as rosy, seeing them at the bottom of the AFC East with a 2-7 record.

Lady Luck looks like she has abandoned Miami
Losing three close games, to the Raiders, the Jaguars and the Falcons, Miami could very easily be 5-4. They have a solid defense against the run, though they are admittedly vulnerable to the pass. And in this way, they match up better than you might think against Baltimore, who have an outstanding running attack, but haven’t fared so well this season in the air. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson looks like he would rather tuck and scramble, and he is very good at doing it, but this is exactly the thing that he mustn’t do against Miami. If Jackson can mount a passing attack, he can make very short work of the Dolphins secondary.

Baltimore is still getting away with it, and more power to them
On the other side of the coin, stands a Baltimore team that have been almost the mirror image of Miami. Equally coming through three squeakers, in their case resulting in tight wins over the Chiefs, the Lions, and last week against the Vikings. Additionally, they have managed to have three overtime games in only eight games. In the same way that Miami could very easily be sitting pretty, there is not much separating a 6-2 Baltimore Ravens from a 3-5 Baltimore Ravens. Their running game has been their bread and butter, and it looks to be running on all four cylinders, but they have yet to face a defense so adept at stopping the run as they will in Miami.
I would look for Baltimore to ride their luck into another close win, but there is every possibility that the sun might shine on the Bad News Dolphins just once tonight.

The Dolphins will start Jacoby Brissett at quarterback.

We like to.. let little kids see us and have them wanting to do the same things we're doing in a positive way."https://t.co/nbaN1jPiRH— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) November 10, 2021
Lamar Jackson wants to win in his hometown.
