It’s time for the Dolphins to show they can measure up to the big boys in an international showdown with the Chiefs

It’s time for the Dolphins to show they can measure up to the big boys in an international showdown with the Chiefs



FRANKFURT, Germany – Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel surprised NFL Network announcers last week with the passion with which he spoke before Sunday morning’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Germany, specifically, the way he detailed his belief in quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

But he also mentioned something else in that production meeting, as commentator Rich Eisen revealed. The Dolphins planned to spend the week in Frankfurt, not only to keep the normal practice schedule intact, but also to rehearse how to conduct the operation remotely.

Because where else does a team spend a week of practice away from their facility? The Super Bowl.

As McDaniel points out that he doesn’t want his team’s first experience doing it that way to occur in that environment, he also speaks to, first, how meticulous he is as a coach, but second, his confidence that his Dolphins They are capable.

Everyone knows the Dolphins (6-2) are good.

But there is another level they must reach. One they haven’t shown outsiders they can do: beat the best teams in the NFL.

All six of their wins came against teams entering Week 9 with losing records. Their two losses by a combined 42 points to others who were expected to compete, the Buffalo Bills and the Philadelphia Eagles.

On Sunday, they have a chance to show the world, literally, that they can really compete with other high-level teams. And they can do it against the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs (6-2) on the international stage, in a 9:30 a.m. kickoff from Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt, Germany.

And while the Dolphins spent the week overseas, arriving Tuesday morning, the Chiefs only arrived in town on Friday morning, participating in an overseas practice in preparation for Sunday’s kickoff.
