Why the Ravens can cover

The Baltimore defense has some stalwarts putting in solid effort in last Sunday’s overtime win over the Minnesota Vikings. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey had a season-high two-pass breakups last week and is looking forward to his sixth game in a row with a pass-breakup. He had two and an interception in the last meeting with Miami.

Linebacker Josh Bynes led the Ravens with 11 tackles in Week 9 and is looking forward to his fourth straight game with at least six tackles and one tackle for a loss. For the season, Bynes has registered 27 tackles, including 19 solo, with four tackles for a loss. He also has two pass break-ups.

Why the dolphins can mate

Miami quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is reportedly only available for emergencies, so Jacoby Brissett will get the start. Brissett played in seven games this season, completing 130-of-202 passes (64.4 percent) for 1,127 yards and five touchdowns. He’s been intercepted four times. In Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans, Brissett completed 26-of-43 passes (60.5 percent) for 244 yards and one score. His best game was at Tampa Bay on October 10, when he completed 27-of-39 passes (69.2 percent) for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

Rookie wide receiver Jaylen Waddle makes a fast start to his career. He leads the Dolphins with 56 receptions for 496 yards (8.9 average) and three touchdowns. He has two explosive moves of 20 yards or more and 229 yards after the catch. He also converted 31 first downs. Last Sunday, he caught eight passes for 83 yards. Waddle has had two games with over 10 receptions, including a 12-catch, 58-yard appearance in Las Vegas on Sept. 26.
