Baltimore Ravens quarterback Patrick Queen thought the Miami Dolphins were a softball team that played gimmick football. Miami coach Mike McDaniel wasn’t too thrilled with Queenand’s comparison to teams playing basketball on grass.

It’s also a clash of Miami’s offense, which leads the NFL in scoring with 30.9 points per game and 411.5 yards of total offense against a Baltimore defense that allows a league-low 16.3 points per game.
