Dolphins on roll now

FACEOFF

Faceoff: who wins sunday, the ravens or dolphins?

January 02, 2009|By Dave Hyde | Dave Hyde,Dave Hyde is a columnist for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Here's what's different from when the Ravens smashed Miami by two touchdowns in October: Jason Ferguson is healthy at nose tackle, anchoring the middle of the defensive line that was pushed around. Here's what's different: Quarterback Chad Pennington is the bandleader of an offense that knows what it needs to do now.

Here's what's different: The Dolphins aren't a team digging out from the rubble of its 1-15 season in 2007.

It's a team that has won nine of its past 10 games. It's a team that conquered the AFC East. It's a team that in the past two months became the kind of tough out that the Ravens should worry about.

It's a team that has delivered one surprise after another this year. I think they have another surprise in them. Dolphins 17, Ravens 13.
