In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Miami Dolphins . After traveling to Buffalo in Week 4, the Ravens will continue their tour of the AFC East in Week 5 when they take their talents to South Beach to take on the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were an aggressive team this offseason, re-signing wide receiver Brian Hartline and throwing big bucks at former Ravens inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and former Pittsburgh Steelers wide-out Mike Wallace.

Longtime NFL quarterback Earl Morrall, who filled in for an injured Johnny Unitas during the 1968 season and was named the league's Most Valuable Player for leading the Colts to the Super Bowl , died on Friday in Florida. He was 79. Morrall played 21 pro seasons and started at quarterback for five NFL teams, but he will be remembered as the ultimate understudy because of that '68 season with the Colts and the 1972 season in which he took over for an injured Bob Griese for nine games and helped lead the Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins to a historic 17-0 record.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Ravens and Miami Dolphins. * ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio and Michael David Smith both think the Ravens to lose, but they differ on the final score . MDS's take: Perhaps it's premature, four weeks into the season, to say this about the defending Super Bowl champion. But I just don't think the Ravens are a very good team. The Dolphins' defense had plenty of flaws on display in Monday night's loss to the Saints, but the Ravens' suspect offensive line is going to make it easy for the Dolphins to get to Joe Flacco.

Editor's note: Towson junior running back Terrance West declared early for the NFL draft after setting school records with 4,584 rushing yards and 86 touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 223-pound Baltimore native is not enrolled at Towson this semester as he pursues the NFL and is sharing his draft experiences with Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson. At the NFL scouting combine, West delivered a strong performance as he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds with a 33.5-inch vertical leap and caught the football smoothly in drills.

The rocky tenure of Bryant McKinnie in Baltimore ended Monday when the Ravens unloaded him to the Miami Dolphins, trading the demoted veteran left offensive tackle in exchange for a conditional late-round draft pick. The Ravens shed a frequently overweight 6-foot-8, 360-pound blocker who graded out poorly this season in five starts prior to being replaced in the starting lineup by new left tackle Eugene Monroe. The one-time Pro Bowl lineman failed to earn any of his weekly $6,250 weight bonuses this season because he never made his target weight of 346 pounds.

DAVIE, Fla. — There's nothing flashy about Chad Henne. Not his appearance: The Miami Dolphins quarterback has sported a military-style crew cut since grade school. Not his statistics: He's completing 61.6 percent of his passes, throwing for 4,614 yards and 20 touchdowns in the 24 games he has played in 2 1/2 seasons. Some NFL quarterbacks produce those numbers in a single season. And certainly not his mentality. "It's my job to lose," Henne said earlier this season of being the quarterback this regime has built its entire three-year rebuilding project around.

The Ravens were shorthanded at wide receiver during Sunday's 26-23 win over the Miami Dolphins . They released Brandon Stokley on Saturday and Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown were scratched before the game, which meant the Ravens had to get through the game with just three active wide receivers. One of the results was Tandon Doss getting his first career NFL start and playing a career-high 50 snaps. A few weeks ago, the third-year receiver's career in Baltimore appeared to be over.

Boys will be boys. Strip away the extraneous verbiage and that is what much of the defense of Richie Incognito boils down to. Mr. Incognito, a Miami Dolphins lineman, was booted from the team a few days ago -- perhaps permanently -- for abusive conduct, racist language and bullying behavior toward fellow lineman Jonathan Martin. Mr. Incognito's teammates are firmly on his side. "I don't feel like any hazing or anything like that was going on," Mike Wallace told my colleague, Greg Cote of The Miami Herald.

MIAMI -- The sale of the Miami Dolphins and Joe Robbie Stadium to H. Wayne Huizenga is expected to be finalized today, with the most notable sticking point in the negotiations -- the rights to the stadium's name -- resolved by a compromise.The stadium name will remain as is, but Huizenga will be able to change or sell it to a corporate sponsor as long as he does not name it Huizenga or Blockbuster stadium.

The Ravens took a lot of gambles for the 2013 season, and they lost most of them. They gambled that they had a franchise-caliber quarterback and they lost. They thought they had signed several good free agents who could help anchor a defense and they didn't. They counted on some young receivers and some old ones too, and they had little impact as well from an undersized offensive line. The Ravens were big losers in 2013, almost as big as the loss they suffered to the Cincinnati Bengals, 34-17, on Sunday, knocking them out of the playoff hunt on the season's final day. It was a rout Bengals style, only kept close by some idiotic play-calling and four Bengals' turnovers.

Some of the Ravens either didn't know or didn't care about all that needed to happen - at least not at that moment - for them to make the playoffs. A 34-point loss to one of your biggest rivals has a way of making everything else seem insignificant. Other players asked team officials or reporters about the various scenarios before concluding that the only thing that really mattered was beating the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. By the time the Ravens reported to the team facility Monday morning for meetings and film review, their path to the playoffs had been dissected and discussed.

After losing to the New England Patriots, 41-7, on Sunday, the Ravens now need a little help if they want to reach the postseason. In order to clinch the sixth and final playoff berth, the Ravens (8-7) need to defeat the AFC North division champion Cincinnati Bengals (10-5) in the regular-season finale and they need either the Miami Dolphins (8-7) to lose to the New York Jets or the San Diego Chargers (8-7) to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs. If there's a three-way tie between the teams to finish the season, the Dolphins hold the edge because of their 7-4 conference record over the Ravens' 6-5 conference record and the Chargers' 5-6 mark.

As the New England Patriots were turning the game into a rout with two late defensive touchdowns, wide receiver Torrey Smith sat on an otherwise empty bench, surveying a scene that no Raven could fathom. M&T Bank Stadium was just about empty by then, and the signs of resignation were everywhere. In a game they knew they had to win to control their playoff future, the Ravens hadn't just been beaten by the Patriots. They had been routed, overwhelmed and embarrassed, a 41-7 blowout qualifying as their most lopsided home loss in team history and worst defeat under coach John Harbaugh.

The importance of what only a week ago was regarded as a routine game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings has grown exponentially for the Cincinnati Bengals. After a 30-20 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bengals (9-5) are clinging to a one-game lead over the Ravens (8-6) in the AFC North. They could lose their grip on the division with a defeat to the Vikings combined with a Ravens win over the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Bengals could also clinch a playoff berth with a win Sunday combined with a loss or tie by either the Ravens or Miami Dolphins (8-6)

Dolphins 24, Patriots 20 STRATEGY:  The Patriots have an offense that is still in transition after losing tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski. Their talents are irreplaceable in the short term and the team is waiting for a trio of rookie wide receivers to become consistent threats. As a result, the Patriots spread the field horizontally with a quick passing game and a lot of screens so Tom Brady can get the ball to shifty wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.

It had been laid out for Ravens coach John Harbaugh long before he had the opportunity to get on his couch and spend a rare Sunday afternoon at home watching other NFL games on television. "I've got a big advantage because our owner, Steve Bisciotti, that's a big part of what he does," Harbaugh said Monday. "He tells me who we need to be rooting for and who we need to be rooting against. He takes all emotion out of it, so I knew exactly who to root for this weekend. I was prepared.

In the perfect NFL world - at least from a marketing standpoint - every one of the 32 teams would still be in playoff contention in mid-December. The only question is whether there comes a point when parity becomes parody. I think we have our answer. The Ravens fell to 4-6 with their weather-delayed, overtime loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday in what was cast as another in a long series of must-win games which we have come to find out they really didn't have to win. Turns out, the Ravens are in pretty good shape in the race for the second AFC wild-card spot when you consider that there are only two teams other than the co-leaders in the West that are as good as 5-5. The Ravens play one of them (the New York Jets)
