One thing the Dolphins are looking for is more consistency from every group on the offense. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has completed about 66 percent of his passes, but many turnovers this year has certainly hurt the Dolphins.
The Dolphins offensive line is a group that needs to find more consistency. Offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil going down last week showed how rough it has been for the offensive line has a group to remain productive whether it is because of injury or blown coverages. The running game has been affected by the play of the offensive line. Tannehill, as the leading rusher for the Dolphins, has just 202 yards on the season. The Bears will pose a big challenge to the offensive line and the Dolphins team, especially with All-Pro linebacker Khalil Mack disrupting plays.
Here Tannehill talks about Mack’s presence and facing off against him this week:
The Dolphins defense hasn’t been that much more impressive than the offense. Giving up nearly 400 yards of total offense, they will need to contain the Bears who scored 48 points in their last game against the Buccaneers.
The Chicago Bears are coming off of a bye week last week and will turn their focus to the Dolphins.
The bears are eyeing in on few matchups this week which could help them beat the Dolphins. One being their key addition this offseason, Khalil Mack lined up against Dolphins RT Ju’Wuan James. The Bears have averaged 27.8 points a game this season and look for another big game from quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Trubisky is coming off of a 6 touchdown game and here he talks about facing the Dolphin defense:
Both teams will come in with three wins, doing their best to earn the fourth. Kickoff is set for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
