Two surprise contenders in the Ravens and Dolphins face off this week in Baltimore with both teams holding solid position for a playoff spot.
The Ravens lead the AFC North at 6-5 as a result of beating up on their divisional opponents while the Dolphins at 7-4 currently hold the final playoff spot in the AFC.
Miami has been finding ways to win after their 1-4 start and each week it has been someone different stepping up.
Last week, it was Ryan Tannehill who threw for 285 yards and 3 touchdowns as the Dolphins held off the 49ers to win their 6th straight game.
At other times, it has been the Dolphins defense or Jay Ajayi or one of the receivers from Miami’s very talented corps.
Last week marked the 5th straight win by the Dolphins that was decided by one score. Winning close games is a great recipe for a playoff run but can become dangerous as the pressure mounting week after week can lead to an evident late loss.
Expect another close game this week against Baltimore’s strong defense.
Ajayi didn’t get rolling last week against San Francisco’s league worst rush defense but it didn’t matter as Tannehill brought the Dolphins to victory.
Tannehill will need to do the same this week as the Ajayi will struggle to run against the great Ravens run defense that held Ezekiel Elliott in check for most of the game a couple of weeks ago.
Baltimore’s offense is not explosive so I would expect a low scoring battle in this game. Tannehill will have to make plays and protect the football like he did last week.
This game will be a true test for Miami – going on the road against a team with playoff experience who is also fighting for playoff position.
An inconsistent offensive attack from the Baltimore offense has put tremendous pressure on the Raven defense.
The defense has responded and is allowing just 18.3 points per game.
The offense though led by Joe Flacco is averaging just 19.8 points per game.
It starts with Baltimore’s inability to run the football (87.8 yards per game) but Flacco’s 11 to 10 touchdown to interception ratio hasn’t helped either.
A banged up Ravens team will need their defense to step up again this week to slow down a red hot Miami offense.
The Ravens are just 2-5 against teams outside of their division. They currently hold the AFC North lead but the Steelers are right behind them so Baltimore will need to win games like this if they want to maintain their position in the playoff race.
Terrance West has been the guy at running back for the Ravens but he hasn’t exactly been tearing it up.
He could have a chance to be more productive against a Miami defense allowing 132.2 rushing yards per game.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 41.0
I think this is the week the Dolphins run ends but they could steal it in a low scoring battle. The under is the play here as the makeup of Baltimore’s weekly gameplan will keep the score down.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Baltimore 17 – Miami 16
Miami’s offense should slow down a bit in this game that will be played in a playoff type atmosphere. A late Tannehill turnover will seal the Ravens victory.
