The Saints pulled off an unlikely upset last week, going on the road to Tampa Bay and shutting out Tom Brady and the Bucs 9-0. That’s a great defensive performance, but New Orleans faces another test when the Dolphins come to town with their six game winning streak.
Miami had to battle back last week against the Jets, but kept their postseason hopes alive with a 31-24 win. The Dolphins are one of six teams just a game back of Buffalo for the final wild card spot, so obviously Sunday’s meeting in New Orleans is huge.
The Dolphins have looked good in rattling off six straight, but at the same time the legitimacy of that streak could be brought into question. Two of those wins have come against the Jets (3-11), and others against the Giants (4-10), Texans (3-11), and Panthers (5-9).
Really the only impressive win Miami has during their recent run is taking down Baltimore 22-10 in week 10. The Dolphins did get a 17-16 victory in New England in the season opener in Mac Jones’ first NFL start, but went on a 7-game losing streak after that.
Regardless of who they’ve played, wins create momentum and Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is playing with confidence. Tagovailoa didn’t have great numbers on Sunday (16/27 for 196 yards) but he threw two 4th quarter TD passes and led the squad to their second 30+ point outing in the last three games.
New Orleans Saints
New Orleans definitely won ugly on Sunday night, managing just three Brett Maher field goals. That being said the victory was still impressive on the road in Tampa Bay as double digit underdogs. The victory pulled the Saints to 7-7, just a game out of the playoff race in the NFC.
The Saints have two winnable games left to close out the year, against Carolina and at Atlanta. First they need to snap Miami’s six game win streak though and to do so Taysom Hill is going to have to be better than 13/27 for 154 yards vs. Tampa Bay.
Actually Hill doesn’t need to be great in the passing game as long as New Orleans can get their running game going. The Saints had just 61 yards on 31 carries vs. the Bucs, with no gain longer than 9 yards.
The Saints defense was especially impressive Sunday night holding Brady to 214 yards passing even on 48 attempts. That’s now two straight weeks keeping an opponent out of the end zone following the 30-9 win at the Jets in week 14.

4* Free Week 16 NFL Betting Prediction: Saints -3
The New Orleans defense is the x-factor in this game, as they’ve been dominant the last two games – even against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. The Saints should be able to get their running game going a little better on Monday night as well.
People aren’t completely sold on the Dolphins win streak considering the competition.
