Dolphins @ Steelers - Sunday 12/8 @ 1PM on CBS 


Sunday, December 8, 1:00 PM (ET) on cbs
heinz field, pittsburgh, pennsylvania




WELCOME TO WALLACE WEEK!!!!

With just four weeks remaining in the 2013 NFL regular season, this is usually the time when contenders start separating themselves from the pretenders. In the case of Miami and Pittsburgh, desperate times call for desperate measures, as every game from here on out will be treated as a “must-win.”

Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania will be the site for this AFC interconference showdown between the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Opening kickoff for this Week 14 match-up is scheduled for Sunday 1 p.m. EST live on CBS.

Staying Alive


If the postseason started today, both Miami and Pittsburgh would be sent home packing. With four games left, and their divisions all but out of reach, both teams’ last hope is for a Wild Card berth.

Miami was able to help its cause last week, going into the Meadowlands and coming away with a gutsy (23-3) victory over the New York Jets. The Steelers, on the other hand, did themselves no favors, as their fourth-quarter rally fell short (20-22) Thanksgiving night versus their longtime rival Ravens.

That's embarassing for the Steelers, what a chump move by Tomlin capped off by that duchey smile. That said I think they are a little better than us soley because of Big Ben and their ability to run the ball. I think our defense again is going to have to outplay the offense to get a win here. Getting to Rothlesburger and bringing him down are 2 different things and we all know what happens when he doesn't go down...hint...its why wallace is here. I think we can win, not sure we will.

They cannot run the football, their workhorse Levon Bell averages about 3.3 yards a carry... I know he is my fantasy running back.. Their Running game is about on par with ours.. big Ben is the real guy we need to key into putting pressure on.

Its about a 50-50 shot for us to win at pittsburgh.. We are going to really need it to be a good weather game because if its snowing,raining, or windy and we cannot pass the ball.. it could get ugly real quick

I have him in fantasy too. He does alright, definately better than either one of our backs but probably because they don't bail out on the run game or split carries I guess. I found it aggrivating that Sherman said this week Miller probably got better by having more carries and he felt backs are better when they have more carries...uh maybe he should've mentioned that sooner.

I'm a bit worried about the weather. I don't know if RTH has ever played in snow.

Hope I get to see it down here in Costa Rica. They had last week's game with the Jets on TV so I'm hopeful.

It would be great if Tannehill and Wallace would prove me wrong this week. That kind of crow I could eat with pleasure.

Yep. Ryan T and Ben R  stats are very close, and so is both team's leading rusher (RB). 
Very similar stats.  Was surprised how close.

Wasn't Tomlin fined $100,000 for that move.

maybe getting docked a draft pick still isn't it kind of nice to have the controversy on the other team for a change..

If i hear one more thing about bullying, I swear i will smack that person silly ,give them a wedgie while flushing their heads in a toilet.. with a swirlie for good measure.. Anyone got something to say?devil

Neither team runs the ball very well. They (Steelers) also don't do well against the run. I think it will come down to Big Ben vs our secondary. If we can get a decent pass rush on (I think their o-line is banged up) I think we win.

Is it too much to ask for these turds to be able to stop the run for ONCE?

Stephen Ross...ur an assclown.
Sell the Dolphins immediately before you completely wreck this franchise.

The Steelers will be starting their 3rd string Center, who's making his first start.

Hopefully we can also get some pressure up the middle on Big Ben, as he likes to step up in the pocket when he feels the pressure coming from the edge. I think we can slam that door shut if we can push that middle.

As mentioned in another post, the offense's of both teams are very similar, numbers wise; but I see the FINS "D" having the advantage this go around. If we shut down the run game, and make a few plays in the secondary, we can take these guys.

Even with the weather (28 degree's with wind chill of 19, and snow showers) and playing in Pittsburgh, I pick the FINS to win a close one 24-23.

That move by Tomlin is bush league.  I think he should have been suspended or lost a high round pick.  A monetary fine isn't enough.  If it were the playoffs, in a close game, would it be worth $100k to interfere if it could mean a championship?  If you lose a valuable draft pick or a couple game suspension, it would remove any potential conflict.

As far as the game, this is the most important game of the season.  I suppose you could say that about every game remaining.  The reason why I feel like this is important is you have two teams fighting for life support.  NE may be fighting for home field but Buf and NJY really don't have a lot to play for.  I'd like to see the Dolphins beat a team that is playing well and fighting for it's life.

27 and snowy in Pittsburgh today. Should be interesting to see how Tannehill handles it, but a definite home field advantage for them.
