Brissett has looked good in both of his preseason matchups so far. In week 1 against the Bears, Brissett went 6/10 for 67 yards. He also had one touchdown pass during that game. In his second preseason game against the Falcons, Brissett played even better. He was 8/8 and threw for 99 yards. He also had 1 touchdown in that game.
Brissett is one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league. He has starting experience with the Colts and was a pretty good backup when the Colts lost their starting quarterback to injury. Brissett knows how to sling the ball and is accurate doing so. In 2019, he had 18 touchdown passes while throwing six picks that season. Brissett is mobile enough to get out of pressure and is hard to bring down with his big 6-foot-4 frame. Brissett has shown that he is smart and knows when to throw the ball away. Expect Brissett to look good on Sunday and throw for more than 100 yards and a couple touchdowns before the Dolphins put their third sting quarterback in.
Wide receiver Mack Hollins is a guy that has looked impressive in training camp and throughout the preseason for the Dolphins. Hollins has good hands and knows how to block as wideout. He is also speedy if he gets into the openfield. Hollins is a big receiver as he is 6-foot-4 and weighs 224 pounds. He almost has the build of a tight end. In Hollins first preseason game against the Bears he had 2 receptions for 20 yards, Including a 14-yard pass reception. Hollins looked even more impressive in his second preseason game against the Dolphins . He was the leading receiver in that game with four receptions for 49 yards. Hollins will have something to prove during this final preseason game to solidify his spot for the 53-man roster, if he has not already. Expect Brissett and Reid Sinnett to go to him often during this game.
Riley has had a good training camp and looked great against the Bears. In his first game against the Bears, Riley had five solo tackles. In his second preseason game against the falcons, Riley did not do as much as he had one tackle. Riley has a lot of quickness, which makes it easy for him to get to the ball quickly. Riley has not looked like the same player as he was at LSU. He boasted 93 total tackles with nine of them being for losses. He was eighth in the SEC in the category of total tackles in 2016. Riley also struggled with the Eagles, which forced Philadelphia not to resign him. Riley has everything to prove during this final preseason game if he wants to make an NFL roster. Expect Riley to be all over the field trying to make plays for the Miami Dolphins. These are the three Miami Dolphins players to lookout for against the Bengals.
