Dolphins 2022 Season Prediction
The Dolphins certainly underperformed last season and a big part seems to be from ex-head coach Brian Flores' coaching style. Now that McDaniel has in control, things should go a lot smoother.
The Dolphins have a solid defense, and if Tua Tagovailoa can have instant chemistry with Hill, the offense could be taken to another level.
With last year's shortcomings in the past, I feel confident that the Dolphins can hit the over on their win total.
