The Outside View: Should Eagles Fans Be Worried About the Dolphins?
On paper, the Miami Dolphins should not pose a problem for the Philadelphia Eagles.
This team is on the road for a third straight game, lost their best pass rusher in Cameron Wake and also fired their coach mid season.
The Dolphins are also 0-4 in the AFC East should any chance of making the playoffs as a wildcard are slipping away with a record of 3-5.
The Eagles on the other hand are coming off a dramatic, walk-off win over the Cowboys on Sunday so things are set up to take advantage of an inferior team.
Greg Likens, host of The Finsiders, joined 97.3 ESPN FM on Friday to provide our Outside View.
"The time is now because if they want to keep pace it starts on Sunday," Likens said.
The Dolphins fired head coach Joe Philbin after an embarrassing loss to the Jets in London and hired Dan Campbell on an interim basis. Campbell has proven to be much more passionate than Philbin and that provided the Dolphins with back-to-back wins immediately after.
However, the Dolphins lost two straight game after that in division to New England and Buffalo in blowout fashion.
"We are trying to figure that out ourselves. This team got a surge with Campbell after the Philbin firing, but the Bills loss was a killer," Likens said.
The NFL is labeled as "Any Given Sunday," but that shouldn't be enough for the Dolphins to upset the Eagles on Sunday afternoon.
