Just one year ago, both teams were considered to be in contention for the first-overall pick, but a late season rally gave the Dolphins five wins. That included an overtime victory over the Bengals late in the season. The Dolphins rode this momentum into 2020, and now they have a record of 7-4 with legitimate playoff aspirations.
Last year’s matchup was supposed to be the “Tua Bowl,” but after Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa got injured and LSU’s Joe Burrow dominated college football, he became the most desired prize in the NFL Draft. Sadly, it is Burrow who is done for the season due to injury this year, while Tagovailoa, now with the Dolphins, is hoping to return from injury this week. It is not clear if it will be he or Ryan Fitzpatrick under center for the Dolphins, so the Bengals defense has prepared for both.
We’d like to thank our sponsor Narragansett Beer for making this show, Orange and Black Insider, and Matt Minich’s Chalk Talk possible all season long.
