The Dolphins are losers of four of their previous five games, but find themselves a 3.5-point favorite over the Ravens Sunday, according to The Ravens are amazingly still in the playoff hunt, after injuries and close losses seemingly derailed their season.

The thread they hang on was nearly snapped Monday night, until Brent Urban made the biggest play of his one-game NFL career. The Ravens blocked field goal return for a touchdown was the most dramatic win of Week 12, but cover up what could’ve been an ugly loss to Cleveland.

Offensive Coordinator Bill Lazor was fired this week, after mounting frustration at the team’s lack of a running game. The Dolphins totaled 12 yards on the ground against the Jets last week, the third-lowest mark in franchise history.
