Tonight's NFL schedule 2013 live stream and TV game for Thursday Night Football features a Halloween clash in Miami, as the Dolphins host the Bengals. Right now, Cincinnati is looking to extend their record to 7-2, as they have quickly piled up wins halfway through the season. The Dolphins will look to bounce back from a two-game losing streak, which included a collapse against the New England Patriots in the second half last week. Tonight's NFL game will be live streaming and televised thanks to NFL Network and website.
According to ESPN.com in their Oct. 31 report, tonight’s game takes place at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Fla, with a game time of 8:25 p.m. EST. Cincinnati is the favorite in this matchup, with the odds makers favoring them by 3 points, while the over/under for combined points is set at 43 at many sports books. The two teams are on opposite streaks, with one in danger of seeing their season slip away, and the other surging among the top teams in the AFC.
Both teams have had a short week to prepare for the game having both played this past Sunday. The difference is that the Bengals defeated the Jets in a romp, 49 to 9, while the Dolphins fell apart in their game against New England. Miami had been up double digits at halftime, but fell victim to turnovers and Tom Brady in the second half. The end result was a Patriots’ win, 27-17, giving New England sole position of the AFC East, while the Dolphins, currently 3-4, sit in third place.
Cincinnati sits in first in the AFC North with their 6-2 record, but Baltimore is 3-4 and the season is far from over. However, the Bengals are on a four-game win streak, and could make it five tonight, which would make them the hottest team in the league not named the Kansas City Chiefs or Denver Broncos. Quarterback Andy Dalton has been leading the way, having thrown for 2,249 yards and 16 touchdowns so far this season. Wide receiver A.J. Green has been the recipient of plenty of those passes, giving him 734 yards and five touchdowns on the season so far.
Dalton is pleased with his team's performance at this point in the season and wants it to continue, telling the media:
"This is where I want to be. This is how I want to be playing."
For Miami, Ryan Tannehill continues to mature and develop as the starting QB. The second-year quarterback has thrown 155-of-261 completed passes this season, good for 1,769 yards and 11 touchdowns. However, he’s got the glaring marks of 9 interceptions and six fumbles, as well. One of those fumbles ended up costing the Dolphins on a key drive during last Sunday’s game.
It should be noted that Tannehill has been dealing with a right shoulder issue, and is expected to play against the Bengals tonight. Among those who won’t be playing tonight are WR Brandon Gibson and TE Dustin Keller who are both done for the season. Tackle Johnathan Martin is “doubtful” due to illness, while tight end Don Sims is doubtful due to a toe injury.
Thursday night's football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins has a scheduled start time of 8:25 p.m. EST. The NFL Network will provide televised coverage on cable and satellite TV. In addition, the NFL.com website may be live streaming the game in pieces.
