Miami Dolphins vs Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Odds and Prediction

The playoffs are a new experience for a lot of them, even five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake.

Gase told reporters on a conference call with Pittsburgh media that the staff will decide later Wednesday if Tannehill will practice Thursday, per NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

After dropping their first two games, the Miami Dolphins (10-6) entered into the playoff via wildcard.

Pittsburgh enters Sunday's game as one of the NFL's hottest teams.

The Miami Dolphins quarterback is out on the practice field in a T-shirt and shorts and with a brace on his left knee, but he isn't participating in drills.

"They had a good running game against us", linebacker Lawrence Timmons said Sunday. "We still have a chance to go get it". We prepare with that understanding.

"Their running was significant in terms of how the game unfolded". That, Tomlin says, is a credit Miami's offensive line, which has allowed just 30 sacks this season (ranked 23rd) and the scheme of offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen. "We'll have better idea, especially once we hit Wednesday, but probably Tuesday, I'll have a good idea so gameplan-wise we can figure out what's going on". No, it was very real. The game plan is simple, but it needs to be executed flawlessly. In that game, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his knee in the first half and played hurt in the second half as the offense sputtered to one of its worst performances of the season.

The victory over the Steelers was a turning point for the Dolphins, who entered the day 1-4 but won six games in a row and nine of their next 10 to clinch their first playoff berth since 2008.

The Miami Dolphins travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers on Sunday, January 8, start time at 1:05 PM ET, at Heinz Field. "There is tangible evidence that we need to respect this preparation process". "We need to have an understanding that what occurred the last time we played these guys was by no means a lightning strike".

No matter who is under center, the Steelers will have to keep their eyes on Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker in the passing game. "Unless something changes drastically here in the next two days or three days, he's going into this thing as the starter".

Tannehill suffered a sprained ACL and MCL during a December 11th game against the Arizona Cardinals and missed the final three games of the regular season. However, Moore didn't play as he sat behind starter Jake Delhomme.

Moore has played decently in Tannehill's absence as he has thrown for 721 yards, eight touchdowns against three interceptions. "I don't think it's appropriate to take that approach".
