DENVER -- It is absolutely beautiful here today. The temperature is in the high 60s and there is a light breeze at Invesco Field at Mile High.
I woke up this morning to a copy of the Rocky Mountain News that had a picture of linebacker Joey Porter in flight as he came out of the back of the end zone and chest-bumped a Colorado State receiver after the Rams scored a TD versus BYU last night.
Porter, who attended Colorado State, was at the game along with Dolphins teammate John Beck, who attended BYU. What a combo, hey? I didn't know Porter and Beck were boys.
Anyway, BYU won the game. And the Rams were flagged for their receiver's celebration with Porter.
As for today, Porter will be at times matched against Broncos rookie left tackle Ryan Clady, who you know has not allowed a sack this season if you read this blog regularly. We'll see today if Porter's streak of five consecutive games with a sack or Clady's sackless streak is broken today. Of course, it doesn't have to be one or the other as Porter can also rush from the right side.
Other things to watch out for today:
Does Ted Ginn Jr. have an enore performance for last week's 7-catch, 175-yard performance?
Do the Dolphins ride Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams in order to keep the Denver offense off the field?
Can the Miami secondary contain the Broncos receivers?
I will be live blogging during the game so let's meet in the comments section. I will update with news -- if there is any -- both here and there.
UPDATE: Receivers Ernest Wilford, Derek Hagan and fullback Casey Cramer are inactive for Miami. Receiver Chad Jackson and tight end Tony Schefler are among Denver's inactives.
