The Dolphins (7-7) just keep winning. They were 1-7 through their first eight games of the season and now, thanks to a six-game win streak, they’re actually in shouting distance of the playoffs. Tua Tagovailoa is back and healthy after dealing with rib and finger injuries this season. The second-year quarterback has started the last five games of Miami’s six-consecutive wins while throwing seven touchdowns and three interceptions. One of his best throws came on a slant to DeVante Parker that resulted in the game winning touchdown.

Miami will look to build on last week's rushing performance that stacked up 183 yards. Running back Duke Johnson was the star of the ground game, taking the Jets for a career high 107 yards and two touchdowns. Johnson was a third round pick out of University of Miami back in 2015 and since then has struggled to find consistent carries. 

The Saints (7-7) are still “in the hunt” for the playoffs thanks to another defensive masterpiece against Tom Brady. Last week New Orleans traveled to Tampa and walked away with a 9-0 win over the Bucs leaving behind a frustrated Brady. The Saints defense held one of the hottest offenses in the league scoreless while handing Brady his first shutout in 15 years.

Defensive end Cameron Jordan is coming off a two-sack game and was part of a defensive line that kept running back Leonard Fournette in check for the first time in weeks. Fournette had been averaging 118 yards-per-game over his last three games, but the Saints held him to just 67 total yards in the win.  

The Saints are 3-point favorites against the Dolphins. The over/under is 37.5.
