For the New England Patriots, their match-up with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday comes down to the defense slowing down a Miami rushing attack led by the criminally under-utilized Kenyan Drake. New England needs to stop the run and make the Dolphins one-dimensional and force quarterback Ryan Tannehill into making turnovers under pressure.

#144 NFL Week 8 Preview (2018) w/ Hal Bent, of FullPressCoverage.com by Sports Krunch w/DKROM • A podcast on Anchor:



It is hard to believe we are almost halfway through the 2018 NFL season. It’s been a wild ride so far, so wild it seems like a year has gone by. But if you think what we just went through these past seven weeks was wild….you ain’t seen nothing yet.



Hal’s Twitter handle: @halbent01

1.



Week 7 Takeaways

 -After getting EMBARRASSED in the “TNF Stinker Bowl”…the clock has to start ticking on Steve Wilks in Arizona

 -Jaguars will forever regret drafting Leonard Fournette over Mahomes and Watson…and extending Blake Bortles instead of signing Teddy Bridgewater

2. Trade Tsunami

 -At this time (on paper), how historically horrendous does the Cowboys trade for Amari Cooper look? How many All Pro (or Pro Bowl) campaigns does Cooper need to have with the Cowboys in order to meet the value of this trade?

 -If you were a contender like the Chiefs who need all the defensive help they can get, would you be willing to trade a first-round pick for Patrick Peterson?
-What trade value, if any, does Le’Veon Bell have?

 -If you’re the Broncos, do you trade Demaryius Thomas for anything you can get (even a seventh-round pick) so you can clear 2019 cap space and get Courtland Sutton more snaps?

Every single week of this 2018 NFL season has consisted of more heart-palpitating finishes to start a season than I can remember. We have had games go to OT every single week, and even though this Week 7 slate of games doesn’t look quite as delicious as those of previous weeks, we should expect even more near-heart attacks this week and for the rest of the season.
