The Dolphins running game is likely to falter in this game. The Lions will be expecting Tannehill to scramble at times as he has a fair intermediate passing game, he will be passing more than usual in this game which favors Detroit.... Detroit just needs to keep doing what it has been doing in this contest and save new twists for New England, Arizona.... Stafford will see the blitz and must handle it.... Expecting strong contributions from Johnson, Tate in this game
