The Dolphins have a chance this Sunday to do something no team has been able to do this yearbeat the Saints

Up to this point the Saints have been near untouchable and I haven't seen how they could get beat. Facing the Dolphins, though, may be a different story. 

When I look at the Dolphins, they just seem to be able to match up with New Orleans a lot better than most teams. 

The Dolphins running game, anchored by Ronnie Brown and a revived Ricky Williams, is the best rushing attack that the Saints have faced all year. And the Dolphins almost always control the game and time of possession. 

But if the Dolphins are to win, two things will need to happen. Quarterback Chad Henne needs to have a good game and they need to control the game like they have in there other wins. 

If they can do those two things, then they have a very good chance to beat the Saints. 

The Wildcat, so far, has worked well. The Dolphins will have to rely on that formation and the play of Henne to get the job done. 

There's no doubt in my mind that if Henne plays a good game and the running game continues to excel, the Dolphins should win. 

The Saints may be in for a surprise come this Sunday. I hope it comes gift-wrapped with a big "L."
