Thursday Night Football Notes

September 29, 2016

Tonight’s Thursday night NFL tilt matches a pair of (1-2) teams, the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins, neither of whom have covered the spread in victory and done so only once in defeat.

Miami covered easily, in defeat, at Seattle(Seahawks), in the first week.

A more pleasant, if not important association between these two AFL expansion teams, in addition to that very fact, is their Slot 3/divisional round clash in the 1973 NFL playoffs.

Miami, under coach Don Shula, won the game and went on to win their second straight Super Bowl, to date, the only two in franchise history.

Cincinnati was coached by Paul Brown, who guided the team into the playoffs for the second time that season.
