Speaking to the Palm Beach Post, Greg Cosell of NFL Films says he wouldn't be surprised to the see the Dolphins win this weekend nor would he consider it an upset up if they did.

"It wouldn't surprise me if they beat the Eagles. To me, that wouldn't be an upset. The Eagles right now are not a fine-tuned machine. The one thing the Dolphins do have is [Karlos] Dansby and Kevin Burnett can both run, so I think that they do have some speed at linebacker. I would say that it's absolutely critical in the run game that backside defenders will play with great discipline, because LeSean McCoy, he's like Barry Sanders, he's a great cut-back runner."

A few things here Greg... For one, you wouldn't consider it an upset because it literally wouldn't be an upset. The Eagles are 3 point underdogs in this game. Plus, these teams have the same record (4-8), Miami is at home and the Dolphins have flat out played better recently. So I don't see how anyone would be surprised if they won. The Dolphins are 4-1 over their last five, while the Eagles are 1-4.
