The Ravens go for three straight victories Sunday, when they head south to take on the Dolphins. Baltimore has dominated this matchup recently, winning five straight. But once again the Dolphins have made coaching changes in the face of mounting loses, and that could mean a different team on Sunday.
Bill Lazor was fired as Miami’s offensive coordinator this week, more than eight weeks after the head coach and defensive coordinator met a similar fate. Both changes came after embarrassing performances against the rival Jets. Calling the plays Sunday will be former quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, who was playing QB at the University of Nebraska as recently as 2006.

Both the Dolphins and Ravens had terrible starts to the season, but only one is playing with an interim coach Sunday.
In Baltimore’s case, they’ve been in every game this season. Every game this season has been decided by one-possession score, and they’ve lost four games by four points or less.
On top of that, Baltimore has one of the NFL’s largest injury lists. That list includes the starting quarterback, running back, receiver, and tight end on their offense. Matt Schaub kept the Ravens afloat in his debut on Monday night, but his two interceptions were, aside from the game-winning kick return, the biggest plays of the game. The first was returned 52 yards for a Browns touchdown, and the latter gave the Browns their last-second opportunity.
Schaub has thrown a pick-six in five of his last eight starts.
