Bet on the NFLThe Week 10 game of the Redskins and Dolphins sees 2 struggling teams meet this Sunday. Both sets of devotees are running short on patience and a defeat versus yet another weak competing squad might push one group of devotees over the edge.
It has been an terrible start to the year for the Dolphins. Both the Offense and Defense have put on bad showings occasionally this season. Their record thus far is currently at 7 losses from 8 games. Some amazing 2nd half collapses are included in those losses. The ray of hope for Miami Dolphins fans is that they ended their 7 game losing streak a week ago with a 31-3 victory over the Kansas city chiefs. Even in win the Miami Dolphins seemed unreliable occasionally yet they will have this performance to build on to finally get their year going.
Devotees of the Washington Redskins have been increasingly running out of patience with their squad and it showed with boos at half time in their last game. The Offense put in a bad performance versus the 49ers as the squad lost 19-11.
The Washington Redskins have lost 5 times since they first started the season with a win in Week 1. They're now on a four game losing streak. The Offense hasn't supported the defense, who has played quite well, limiting the 49ers in the last game. There have been accidents to important men but that is a story you're going to hear from all over pro football. Every squad has accidents to cope with.
Qb John Beck is now 0-3 as a starting qb and his passing hasn't been impressive so far. Roy Helu has additionally struggled, fumbling to give away 7 points in the last game.
Who will come out ahead? That's a hard question to answer. I have a feeling that the Washington Redskins will break their 4 game losing streak and doom the Dolphins to another defeat. The Miami Dolphins might take heart from their win last time out and mount a winning run of their own but on this occasion I feel the Redskins will shade it with a close win.
