I'm not thrilled about a Joe Flacco / Skylar Thompson game, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if the Dolphins found a way to blow this game as well. However, the Fins are at home where they play their best football, the defense is better at home and a win gives them a great chance to sneak into the playoffs. The New York Jets don't have much to play for, and they're rolling out a near 38-year-old QB who has 8 starts in the last 3 seasons. If the Dolphins can't find a way to squeeze out a win here… Yikes. I'll lay the field goal.
