Thursday Night Football between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Miami Dolphins is the big NFL game tonight to kick start Week 9 of the NFL 2013 regular season.
The game will kick off at the Sun Life Stadium at 8.25 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on the NFL Network. Alternatively there will be a live stream available to watch the action online via the link provided below.
The Bengals are 6-2 coming into this match up, and will be looking to hand out the suffering 3-4 Dolphins another defeat.
The Bengals won last week in a comprehensive manner, 49-9 at home to the New York Jets. The Jets have been blowing hot and cold all season; claiming some fantastic wins and then toothlessly giving away games at other times. This game was perhaps as much to do with the Jets being toothless as the Bengals being amazing. But taking nothing away from Cincinnati they wiped the floor with the New York team.
Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins collapsed in their game last week, blowing a 14-0 lead, before being overwhelmed against the New England Patriots.
That does not bode too well for the Dolphins today and most have the Bengals penciled in to get the win tonight.
The Bengals have opened up a 2.5 game lead in the AFC North division, and look likely to push on and claim their first AFC North title since 2009.
The Dolphins though are getting increasingly desperate and will need a win today to keep their hopes of a postseason slot alive. They are currently third in the AFC East, behind both the 4-4 New York Jets, and the 6-2 New England Patriots.
