Who’s playing Monday Night football tonight, week 16? Games, schedules, TV
“Monday Night Football” wraps up Week 16 tonight with the last of the division clashes.
In what will be the penultimate “MNF” of the regular season, the Miami Dolphins Head to New Orleans face the saints. Both teams (7-7) are at the heart of the AFC and NFC playoff races and have shown rising defenses that will allow for a good game on Monday.
New Orleans come off a surprise 9-0 win against the Buccaneers in Week 15. With a defense that silencing Tom Brady for the first time since 2006, and two back-to-back wins that broke their five-game losing streak, the saints ascend high.
But while winning Tampa Bay was a surprise, tonight’s game against the blazing Miami Dolphins is should tire New Orleans. The suffocating defense of the Dolphins made it possible Miami to go from 1-7 to 7-7, allowing opponents no more than 20 points. The Saints will likely want to rely on their defense as a starting quarterback Taysom Hill has yet to find an accuracy this season.
Tua Tagovailoa vs. New Orleans
On the other hand, the Dolphins quarterback helped Miami in their last six consecutive victories. Tua Tagovailoa has completed 75.8% of his passes with seven touchdowns, 943 yards and three interceptions in his last four starts.
the Dolphins will rely on Tagovailoa and their defense, lighten the burden on their offensive line which is always a work of progress.
