The Dolphins have been competitive in every game since their season-opening wake-up call against the Houston Texans.
Ryan Tannehill lit up the Arizona Cardinals for 431 yards last week, and the defense played well enough to win. Miami was a field goal away from beating the New York Jets in Week 3 and trounced the Oakland Raiders in Week 2.
It's safe to say the Dolphins are one of the better 1-3 teams in the league.
To me, the most overlooked team in the AFC right now is the Cincinnati Bengals.
They had their chance to make a major statement Week 1 against the Ravens in Baltimore, but the national TV audience remembers the way Joe Flacco and Co. destroyed Marvin Lewis' club.
Since then, they've been thoroughly exciting and have sneaked out to a 3-1 record.
Their defense leads the NFL with 16 sacks, and, quietly, Andy Dalton's 103 QB rating is the fifth highest in the league—better than guys like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Joe Flacco and Aaron Rodgers.
Miami's defense will initially surprise the high-powered Bengals offense, but Mike Zimmer's defense will confuse Ryan Tannehill in the second half, and a few big plays by A.J. Green will ultimately decide the game.
