After 2 heroic comebacks, one on the road at a Super Bowl contender's house and one in our friendly confines against a Super Bowl pretender, now comes the acid test.
Can the Dolphins roll into Baltimore, against a team who is so similar statistically that they could actually switch uniforms and no one would know the difference, and come out with another win?
Can they play in a stadium that has not been friendly to us in any way? At least not since the first time we played the Ravens back in 2009 and walked out with a 24-13 victory.
Since then its been 3 losses in 3 attempts with 2 blow outs including last year's 38-6 see ya later.
In our 14 game history with the Ravens we won 5 of the first 7 games. Since then we are a dismal 1-6. And that includes 5 home games.
They just beat us up. They diminish our will to win. They shake hands and say "Hope to see ya soon."
In only our 5th Baltimore trip to play the Ravens, tomorrow night will tells us a lot about the quit, or lack there of, in our Dolphins.
Baltimore will be pumped. They are an emotional team. They sense the importance of this game.
At 3-4, they are chasing the Steelers by 2 games. And, believe it or not, they are chasing us as well by 2 games.
So this game is crucial for their playoff chances. The Tie Breaker can come in handy later on down the road.
Yes, I know, I know, this game is important to us too. But by how much???
That is what I want to find out tomorrow night. I want to see exactly how tough we are. Can we be physical on a short week or are we just a lucky finesse team these past 2 weeks?
If you want to be a contender, a true contender, then you have to be able to go into someone else's kitchen and steal the cookie jar. With them watching!!!
This is going to take some balls tomorrow night. Some big balls. This is not a team taking us lightly nor are they a bit cocky after beating us 3 weeks ago.
Nope. They need this bad and as sure as hell you know Harbaugh will have them frothing at the bit.
They will come out fired up and look to put a beating on us. Like a bully in the neighborhood.
Hopefully, we are up to the challenge. This is going to be our first opponent playing in a must win game this season.
Sparks will be flying!
