Kansas City Chiefs vs Miami Dolphins: Live Stream, Preview, Updates

on

dolphins vs billsThe Kansas City Chiefs will travel to Miami to meet the Dolphins this week in hopes of getting their first win of the 2014 season.

The winless Chiefs need Alex Smith to start proving he was worth that big contract, especially with Jamaal Charles’ status unclear, and Ryan Tannehill hopes to begin showing he’s worthy of one for a Dolphins team missing Knowshon Moreno.

Charles will be trying to play through a high ankle sprain he suffered in the first quarter in a 24-17 loss to Denver last week. He practiced on a limited basis and is still very sore.

If Charles can’t go, second-year pro Knile Davis did a solid job in relief last week, gaining 82 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries and 29 yards on seven receptions.

“When I go in, I know my job has been all week to pay attention to what Jamaal does,” Davis said. “I’ve been doing good film study, watching him and what he does so if unfortunately he went down I would be able to step in and help out.

The Dolphins will be without Marino for at least four weeks and possibly longer after dislocating his elbow in last Sunday’s 29-10 loss to Buffalo.

“It hurts because No. 1, he’s a productive player and has proven that,” Miami offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. “No. 2, anyone who watches the game can see the emotion Knowshon plays with.”

That will put more pressure on quarterback Ryan Tannehill to turn in a big performance and he knows the team will be counting on him, even though thus far this season he has been less than spectacular.

“I haven’t been at my best,” Tannehill said. “It has got to change, and it has got to change fast. I look forward to going out Sunday and changing it.”

We’re looking for the Chiefs to get their first win of the season although Miami has taken the past three meetings
