The Miami Dolphins have been one of the most significant teams throughout the entire season but they are dealing with injuries to significant players. They have one of the biggest matchups of the season on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in a battle of the top two seeds in the AFC but they will be without running back Raheem Mostert for this game as he is battling knee and ankle injuries.

Raheem Mostert has appeared in all 15 games prior to Week 17 and is leading the NFL in rushing touchdowns while being tied with San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey in total touchdowns. On the season, he has 209 rushing attempts for 1,012 yards (4.8 yards per carry) with 18 rushing touchdowns while adding 25 receptions for 175 yards (7.0 yards per catch) with three receiving touchdowns.
This is a massive blow for the Miami Dolphins and Raheem Mostert fantasy owners alike as he has been a gigantic offensive weapon in one of the most dynamic offenses we have seen in the 21st century.
Can the Miami Dolphins win against the Baltimore Ravens without Raheem Mostert?
The Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Ravens are getting ready for a potential AFC Championship Game preview and this game is expected to be a very close matchup. The Ravens are a 3.5-point favorite at home and this game so this should be an intriguing matchup.
This is a legitimate test to end the season for the Miami Dolphins as they are looking to build off their 22-20 home win last week over the Dallas Cowboys. With players like Tyreek Hill needing to step up as now both running back Raheem Mostert and wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, they need to figure out how to get significant production without some of the integral pieces on the field for this game.
With some of the top contenders for the 2023-24 NFL Most Valuable Players on the field throughout this game, it is going to be a very intriguing early slate game to keep an eye on. The winner of this game will have a definitive advantage in terms of getting the top seed as they will have the tiebreaker for the bye week in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs.
It’ll be extremely difficult but the Dolphins have a chance to win this game if they want to be proven as a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
