Head-to-Head: Miami Dolphins vs Philadelphia Eagles
Being in different conferences, the Dolphins and Eagles scarcely see each other – Sunday will mark only their fifth meeting since 2007. Miami has won each of their last two matchups against Philadelphia, but the 2023 Dolphins share little DNA with either of the teams responsible for those wins.
The Eagles are coming off their first loss of the season: a 14-20 loss to the Jets that wasn’t in a primetime television slot, but was still seen by the lion’s share of football fans and analysts as a preferred late-afternoon game. While the Eagles have been playing like less than the sum of their parts for most of the season, winning regardless, their performance in the loss to the Jets drew widespread criticism. Jalen Hurts – who threw only six interceptions all of last season – has already thrown seven picks this season after throwing three to the Jets.
The Dolphins are coming off consecutive wins, albeit against two teams – the Giants and Panthers – that have one win between them thus far. Still, the offense ranks among the best in league history through six weeks and they were able to gain yards at will against the Panthers. Tua Tagovailoa threw for 261 yards and 3 touchdowns on only 21 completed passes, while Raheem Mostert racked up 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 17 carries. The Eagles figure to present the Dolphins with their biggest challenge in weeks, but that goes both ways.

Miami Dolphins vs Philadelphia Eagles Predictions
While the Dolphins have boat raced each of their three home opponents this year, their road wins over the Chargers and Patriots only came by two and seven points, respectively. Their offense ranks first in points (37.2), passing yards (316.8), and rushing yards (181.8) per game, but they aren’t as likely to run away with this game as they did with their past two. The Eagles will be – at worst – the second-best opponent the Dolphins have faced this season, and they’ll be looking to avoid dropping two straight games after their showing against the Jets. Buck the trends and back Philly here.
Prediction: Philadelphia -2.5
