Last Meeting: Steelers 23-20, October 24, 2010 at Miami
All-Time Series: Steelers 13-11
Key Matchup: Mike Adams vs. Cameron Wake and Oliver Vernon
Adams gets the start at left tackle for the Steelers after being benched after Week 4. He could have his hands full with both Vernon and Wake coming at him. Wake, who has 6.5 sacks on the season, will likely be lined up in front of the second-year pro most of the day and when he records a sack the Dolphins are unbeaten on the season.
Vernon has six sacks in the past two weeks and while he will likely spend his time on the other side, the Dolphins could flip flop their defensive ends at times to take advantage of Adams.
Either way I would expect a lot of heat coming from the edge as Adams to be tested early with blitzes.
If the Ohio State product hasn’t improved, the Steelers won’t have much of a shot.
Prediction: This one will be close and at the end of the day I am going with the team with more on the line. The Dolphins need a win to stay in the postseason and while the Steelers still technically have a chance at the playoffs, this loss will stick the fork in them. Wallace makes a big play late and the Dolphins win. Miami 27, Pittsburgh 24
