Miami offense vs. Green Bay defense
Ray Lucas bombed in his seasons' first start by amassing six turnovers vs. a shaky defense. Now the Packers defense looms large as it leads the NFL in turnovers (23). Lucas will welcome the steady presence of Cris Carter, but their timing will likely be off. Chris Chambers will return from a concussion, yet he wasn't productive when Jay Fiedler was starting. The offensive production will depend on Ricky Williams. Green Bay hasn't allowed a running back to score in the last three games and has yielded just one 100-yard game. As run stuffer Gilbert Brown anchors the defensive line, look for the Packers to cram the line of scrimmage to prevent Williams from scampering for a huge day.

Green Bay offense vs. Miami defense
Blessed with a bye week, Brett Favre will play after spraining his knee in Week 7. He will wear a brace, though, which will limit his mobility. Don't expect rollouts and scrambles, making him an easy target for the ferocious Miami defensive line. Donald Driver and Terry Glenn will find it difficult to escape the league's best pair of corners. Look for Ahman Green to carry the offense; the Dolphins have allowed 400 total yards to Denver and Buffalo running backs in the past two weeks. Green has rushed for 224 yards and four touchdowns in the past two contests.
Clayton's Fins-Pack Analysis

And 10. Miami Dolphins at Green Bay Packers : The Dolphins know that they are down three starters on offense, including quarterback Jay Fiedler. The Packers hope they have Brett Favre, who is coming off the bye week with a knee injury. The Packers are listing him as questionable for the Monday night game. The extra day to prepare may help his recovery. Without Fiedler, the Dolphins have a dilemma. Ray Lucas was horrible in his first start, throwing four interceptions against the Bills. Another bad performance may open the doors for Sage Rosenfels, who is getting coached up as quickly as possible. There is a lot of pressure on Lucas, who is a running quarterback trying to adjust to Norv Turner's offense. He has the benefit of having a powerful running attack led by Ricky Williams. What isn't known is how well Cris Carter will do in his first start since ending his retirement. Carter is expected to be Lucas's possession receiver, trying to go across the middle for the tough yards. The Packers have done a remarkable job filling in for loads of injuries along the offensive and defensive lines and the secondary. Favre has carried the team with his ability to make big plays. But will he be the same coming off the knee injury? Favre has shown an amazing ability to fight through pain but how much his knee will be affected will be the key to the Packers offense.
