Saints vs. Dolphins Point Spread: NFL Week 4 Odds, Prediction

Gase got more done with Tebow in Denver than he's getting from Dolphins 'garbage' offense now

The excuse could be used that the Week 4 game took place in London, but there was an expectation that the Miami Dolphins would be able to move the ball easily against a subpar New Orleans Saints defense.

While Brees hasn't been picked off so far this season, Peterson hasn't reached the 100-yard mark in any of his first three games with the Saints. His 867 passing yards and six passing touchdowns both tie for fourth in the league, and the fact that he's still airing the football out at 38 is truly remarkable. How will the time change affect the squads?

It was expected to be a big homecoming for the Dolphins' Jay Ajayi, who was born in the city, but the running back finished with 46 yards on 12 carries.

There was no drama to the drubbing in NY, where the Dolphins netted only 225 yards and didn't score until the final play. He did have 122 yards in the opener against the Los Angeles Chargers; last week could just be chalked up to a bad game. Everything coming out of Dolphins camp this offseason said the Parker was in for a career year - that he was finally developing into that true No.1 receiver that the Dolphins have lacked for years.

Miami faces the beatable Tennessee Titans in their next outing, and then will see the Falcons, who have a solid chance of still being undefeated at that point. Ajayi has been battling some knee problems, after compiling 122 yards in the season opening win.

New Orleans' drive failed when Will Lutz missed wide right on a 41-yard field goal. Ajayi needs more touches and he will get them against the Saints. Kudos to the Saints offensive line for holding up really well, and credit to Sean Payton for utilizing the screen game as well as a heavy dose of play action to keep the Panthers on their heels.

Dolphins' linebacker Ray Maualuga (hamstring) and defensive lineman Jordan Phillips (ankle) are questionable. He has TD catch in last two games.

"They played fast and they did well", Gase said of the Saints defense. "We got a lot of good practice in". The Dolphins are averaging a paltry 0.19 points per play through two games this season, well below the 0.39 PPP rate they posted last season. But with the likes of Matt Ryan, Derek Carr, and Tom Brady looming in the schedule, they're going to need to turn it around in a hurry if they want to remain contenders for the playoffs. The Saints can give the Dolphins a hard time by their offense. More than 300 of those total yards (311) are passing yards. Last Sunday, the Saints scored a touchdown in the first quarter at Carolina, the first one allowed by the Panthers this season. Landry again leads the team in receptions with 19.
