A big night for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who will need all of their firepower to defeat the Atlanta Falcons and the Seattle Seahawks.
But the win-or-go-home showdown against the Miami Dolphins is also going to be a big night, with a possible upset.
The Steelers are playing for a playoff spot, and they’ll need to show the Dolphins they can make plays.
Here are some of the key plays to watch tonight: •The Dolphins are coming off a loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday night, but they are coming out with a fresh set of weapons.
The Dolphins defense is playing extremely well, giving up just 14 points per game, and have only allowed seven points or less to the Steelers since the start of the season.
The offensive line is very stout as well, allowing just four sacks, and it’s been a very good unit all season long.
The defensive front is one of the league’s most underrated units, and Miami has had plenty of success stopping the run and limiting the passing game.
The run defense, however, is a bit shaky right now, and the Dolphins have given up just seven rushing touchdowns this season.
•The Miami secondary is a little underwhelming at the moment.
Cornerback Marshon Lattimore (groin) and safety Cameron Wake (hip) are out, but cornerback Brent Grimes (groina) and free safety Tre’Davious White (ankle) have been solid all season.
Safety Earl Mitchell (hip), safety Nate Allen (hamstring) and linebacker Jelani Jenkins (groins) are also limited.
Miami has struggled in coverage, allowing seven passes of 20 or more yards to be completed.
If Miami can hold up in the run game, the Dolphins are a dangerous team to watch.
•With two games remaining, the Steelers are on pace for at least four wins, and could very well win a lot of them.
Pittsburgh will need to keep winning at home to make it back to the postseason.
They will be looking to win the AFC North this week against the Denver Broncos, but will also need to come out with two wins against the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns.
The team has been without wide receiver Antonio Brown, but he’s back in action.
Brown had two receptions for 26 yards against the Titans, and his production should continue in tonight.
The quarterback situation is still a little shaky with Josh Dobbs (hamstrung) and Paxton Lynch (knee) both questionable.
Pittsburgh has a good chance of winning this game.
But it’s going to take a big performance from the Dolphins to make a playoff run.
