The Saints are riding high coming into Week 16.
They once again proved to be Tom Brady’s kryptonite in Tampa Bay, shutting down the powerful Buccaneers in a 9-0 shutout that have kept them solidified in the mix of teams searching to lock up one of the NFC wild cards. New Orleans has now won two straight games after snapping a five-game losing skid.
But while they’re enjoying the most recent win, they’ll have to be prepared for a scorching Miami team that has gone from 1-7 to open the year to 7-7 on the strength of a six-game winning streak.
The Dolphins run of success has largely come from a stifling defense. Opponents have reached 20 points only once during the winning streak, while four have been held to 10 or fewer. Overall, the Dolphins are allowing just 184.7 yards per game and 13.2 points per game.
The offense has also received a boost in the past four games from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. In his past four starts, he has completed 75.8 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns, 943 yards and three interceptions.
