The Pittsburgh Steelers will take their 4-1 record on the road in Week 6 and play the 1-4 Miami Dolphins Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium. As you can probably already imagine, the Steelers are big road favorites in that game.
The Steelers opened as 7-point favorites over the Dolphins in a game that will be broadcasted on CBS by Spero Dedes and Solomon Wilcots.
In 2010, the last time the Steelers were 4-1 to start a season, their sixth opponent that year was also the Dolphins and the game was also played in Miami. The Steelers won that game 23-22 and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 302 yards and 2 touchdowns. Roethlisberger, by the way, has a 4-1 career record against the Dolphins and is 3-0 against them in Miami.
The Dolphins lone win this season came in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns in overtime and it’s a game they probably should have lost. Browns kicker Cody Parkey missed three field goals for Cleveland in that game, including a 46-yarder as time expired in regulation.
This past Sunday, the Dolphins lost at home to the Tennessee Titans 30-17. Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed just 12 pass attempts in that game for 191 yards and 2 interceptions. For the season, Tannehill has 7 interceptions and has been sacked 17 times in total.
Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been one Miami’s few bright spots so far this season as he has caught 34 passes for 403 yards and a touchdown heading into Week 6.
