The Dolphins, whose win in Week 3 marked the first career victory for rookie head coach Adam Gaze, seek to win their fourth consecutive game against Cincinnati after their 30-24 overtime win over the Browns. Miami trailed Cleveland 13-10 at the half in the Sunshine State at Hard Rock Stadium, then took the lead when WR Jarvis Landry and Ryan Tannehill connected on a 42-yard TD pass with 5:17 left in the third quarter. Cleveland would storm back and eventually even things back up when K Chris Parkey connected on a 38-yard field goal with 3:14 left in regulation. With the contest tied at the end of the regulation period, both teams got a chance to score in their first try.

Miami won the toss to start the extra quarter but could not score but Cleveland was held in check in the overtime. After a 6-play Browns drive stalled, Miami got the ball back and needed only three plays and 44 yards to end the contest when ‘Fins RB Jay Ajayi carried the ball in from 11 yards with 8:26 left in the overtime. Miami was outrushed by Cleveland 169-115 in the contest, while Tannehill threw for 319 yards and a pair of TDs, despite being picked off twice and sacked once (Cleveland’s Case Keenum threw for 244 yards in the contest). Third down conversions at Hard Rock Stadium were not exactly a thing of beauty between Cleveland and Miami; the Browns were 4 of 15, while Miami was 2 of 10 but Cleveland did rule the clock, keeping the ball for 37:22 to Miami’s 29:12.

The Bengals look to even their record to .500 after their 29-17 loss at home to the defending Super Bowl champs Denver. The Broncos managed to erase an early 7-0 lead after Bengals HB Jeremy Hill opened the contest’s scoring with a 3-yard run early in the first and never looked back afterward. Denver led 16-14 at the half and took control of things in the second half, outscoring the Bengals 13-3. Trevor Siemian threw for 312 yards and a pair of TDs in the game, including an 55 yard toss to WR Demaryius Thomas to seal the deal with 4:23 left to play. Although the Bengals did outrush Denver 143-52, Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton (206 yards) did not exactly have a good day under center, as he was sacked four times and threw a pick. Denver was 6 of 12 on third down tries at Paul Brown Stadium, keeping the ball for 27:54, while the Bengals held on to the pigskin for 32:06, going 5 of 12 and 0 of 1 on third and fourth downs.

The Dolphins hold a 15-5 lead in the series, have outscored Cincy 462-343 and have taken wins in the last three meetings, including a 22-20 overtime win in the Sunshine State in 2013 (the Bengals’ last win over Miami came in 2007, also in the Sunshine State by a final of 38-25). Cincinnati is favored by 7 and the over/under is 44 1/2. You might want to tape “Greys Anatomy” this week. This one might be worth watching. Bengals may not cover the 7 but they do reach the .500 mark with the win.
