As we approach the end of the season, it’s do-or-die time for a lot of teams. Two of those teams, the Miami Dolphins and the New Orleans Saints, face off in primetime in this weeks’ edition of Monday Night Football.

Both teams sit at 7-7, each a game behind the last seed in the playoff race. The Saints have faltered down the stretch following the loss of starting quarterback Jameis Winston midway through the season. The Dolphins have had the opposite narrative, finding themselves well in the playoff picture following a start that had them in the conversation for the first overall pick.

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has finally hit his stride and finally has the offense playing on par with Miami’s stout defense. The Saints continue with their quarterback carousel, with Winston’s replacements Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian both testing positive for COVID-19. That leaves New Orleans with rookie Ian Book likely to get the start, with lots of pressure and a tough matchup.
