Packers vs. Dolphins 12/25/22 Preview Games and History
These teams play sporadically but have been doing it for quite a long time, first matching up in 1971 when the Dolphins won 27-6. It would be years until the Packers got a taste of victory in the series, with the Dolphins winning the first eight games they played until the Dolphins broke the streak in 1997 with a close 23-18 victory.
Things are going much more Green Bay’s way now, though, with the side winning 4 of the last 5, taking the overall series to 10-5 in Miami’s favor. Games have often been close, though and so the overall points scored are closer, with the Dolphins leading 345-287.
Packers vs. Dolphins 12/25/22 Odds and Statistics
These teams haven’t ever come up against each other in the postseason. They last faced off in 2018 when the Packers won 31-12. Green Bay will be hoping to keep their recent success in the series going so they can continue making up ground on the overall score between the sides.
This Packers vs. Dolphins 12/25/22 game will be the first time these two sides have met since 2018.
Packers vs. Dolphins 12/25/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
Expectations were high among many fans after last season’s successes, but the team seems to have regressed in almost all areas. The defense, in particular, seems to have found that its quality has fallen off the edge of a cliff at times. After the changes in the offseason, there was still a belief that the talent in the back would be enough to keep Green Bay competitive, but that faith has turned out to be misplaced for the most part.
A lot of that faith rode on De’Vondre Campbell and Rasul Douglas managing to maintain the lofty standards that they shocked many people with last season, but it was always going to be a risky bet putting so many eggs in that basket, and the gamble hasn’t really paid off. Their large paychecks make the bad mark on general manager Brian Gutekunst’s record even rougher.
It was expected that the team would be better prepared for the transition after Davante Adams left, but the offense seems to have been completely caught off guard by the change. Anything other than regression was always unlikely when the team still relies so heavily on Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, who will be 40 by the time the new year comes in.
The postseason isn’t mathematically impossible, but it’s almost impossible to see it happening, and a win in Packers vs. Dolphins 12/25/22 will be vital if it’s ever going to happen.
Miami has been chugging along nicely this season and has racked up a record of 8-5 on the way.
Initial worries about the defense have mainly receded since the beginning of the season, and a lot of that can be credited to the last-minute addition of Bradley Chubb at lineback. Unfortunately, that pickup has coincided with a dip in form for the offense, who were seemingly racking up 30-point scores at will earlier in the season. In addition, Tua Tagovailoa at QB looked like a rock the Dolphins could rely on, but he seems to have hit a bad patch of form out of nowhere, and Miami’s form has suffered for it.
The upcoming fixture run doesn’t look too comforting, but fans should still be optimistic of a playoff spot.
