Halloween Thursday Night Football

Halloween 2013 we are treated to the 6-2 Bengals vs. the 3-4 Miami Dolphins. Bengals seem to be running away with the AFC North, as the Dolphins season has been...well, like this guy

Winners of three strait to start the season, and now currently on a four game slide and sitting at third place in jeopardy of falling into a tie for last with the Bills who have already beaten them. The Dolphins kinda sorta need this game to stay alive if not for the division, at least for the wild card down the road as it will be difficult (but not impossible) To catch the Pats.

On the other side, the Bengals are starting to flex their muscles...kind of like this guy
                                                                                                                                                              with wins over the Patriots, Steelers (Division win regardless of record) Packers, Lions and the dismantling of the Jets a week ago, if you don't know by now? Cincinnati is pretty darn good. Ranking in the top ten in both total offense and defense as a team, not even to begin to mention the individual standouts they have. Marvin Jones had the big game a week ago and A.J Green gets the majority of the headlines but they have another wide out who remains in my starting lineup in two of my three fantasy teams, and that is my former high school teammate and Rutgers standout Mohamed Sanu. Not only is this done out of the respect I have for the dude but mark my words HE WILL HAVE A BREAK OUT's only a matter of time. And I'm hoping tonight may just be that night.

A stat which favors the Dolphins going into tonight is on Thursday Night Football games this season with all games combined, the home or away teams have yet to win more than two in a row (3 Home, 4 Away). If the Trend continues? Dolphins pull off the upset victory tonight.

BUT, I'm going with my conventional wisdom tonight. Dolphins keep it close until Bengals get a key turnover late and pull away 35-24 and Sanu gives my fantasy team a treat with two touchdowns! Enjoy the game and Happy Halloween!

Any chance the "Phins" pull this win out, this is how they MUST play:
