8:15 PM Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals
The Miami Dolphins are seeking their first 4-0 start since 1995 when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals for Thursday Night Football. Miami is coming off a 21-19 victory over the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati (1-2) lost its first 2 games before a solid 27-12 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday. What’s unknown is if Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will be available. He was limited in practice Tuesday, with the team saying he has both back and ankle injuries. Tagovailoa said that he will play but the Dolphins haven’t yet reached that conclusion. Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon is ready to play in this one but defensive tackle D.J. Reader will miss at least a month and tight end Drew Sample and offensive tackle La’el Collins did not participate in Tuesday’s practice. The Dolphins’ Waddle is among the players dealing with injuries as well.
🏈The Bengals are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. AFC.
🏈The Bengals are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.

He matched his career high of 4 touchdown passes and passed for a season-high 337 yards during Saturday’s 38-24 home win over Wyoming. He enters the game against Utah State with a streak of 115 consecutive passes without being intercepted. Utah State has lost its last 3 games by an average of 31 points.
