NFL Thursday Night Football takes place tonight with a big game between the Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Ravens. The game has a scheduled start time of 8.25 p.m. ET and takes place from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. The game can be watched on TV on the NFL Network or on the CBS network, or can be watched online on Amazon Prime Video, or through live stream (details below).
The Dolphins will be desperate to win here tonight. They come into Week 8 on 4-2 which sees them tied for second in the AFC East division along with the Buffalo Bills. However, if they can win here tonight they would move level with the New England Patriots on 5-2 and be right in the fight for the division title as we reach the half way point in the season.
The Ravens though are trying to make a fight of things in the AFC North and are desperate for a win too.
They come into the game on just 3-4, which in a weak AFC North division is enough to capture them second spot right now. However, they know they have to improve and need to string a series of wins together to try and get closer to division leaders, the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are on 5-2. That's a long way off but getting themselves back to an even .500 with a win today will be their top priority, and then they can take things from there.
Tonight's game could be a low scoring affair as we have two offenses that have struggled badly until now.
The Dolphins are second-worst in the NFL when it come to offense and getting points on the board, and they average a lowly 15.3 points per game. Miami are rock bottom when it comes to yards per game, where they are only managing 261.8 yards each outing.
The Ravens are only slightly better, and are posting just 277.6 yards per game, and scoring just 18.6 points per game.
However, despite their terrible offensive stats, the Dolphins have a reasonably strong record till now, winning four of their six games to date. The Ravens meanwhile have lost four of their last five games.
So this may not be a shootout, but it makes for an intriguing contest with both teams in positions where they will feel they simply must win.
