The AFC is a very tight race as the season begins to round to a close and numerous teams are still fighting for a playoff spot. CBS Sports and former special teams ace Steve Tasker spoke on the match-up between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins on “Thursday Night Football.”
Can the Denver Broncos get back to their winning ways or will Miami hang another loss on Manning and company?
In a critical AFC East showdown last night, the Dolphins emerged with a 22-9 victory, scoring the game’s final 19 points in the last 18 minutes. Miami is now 6-4 with favorable home games against Baltimore, Minnesota, and the Jets, while Buffalo is 5-5 and a longshot to make the playoffs.
If things had worked out differently, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn could be starting for the Miami Dolphins and Miami QB Ryan Tannehill could be a Seahawk. Plus, Pete Carroll and Reggie Bush meet again.
As a free-agent, quarterback Matt Flynn chose the Seattle Seahawks over the Miami Dolphins, who then drafted Ryan Tannehill. Then Flynn lost the starting gig in Seattle to Russell Wilson. On Sunday, he will watch the two rookies lead the teams that seemingly wanted him.
A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
