The Miami Dolphins will take on the Arizona Cardinals Sunday afternoon at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Miami is seeking to rebound off of a tough overtime loss against the New York Jets at home. The Dolphins looked good for a majority of the game but couldn't provide the finishing kick. Dan Carpenter missed a potential game-winning 48-yard field goal in extra time before Nick Folk put the game away for Gang Green.

Joe Philbin's team has looked very competitive, despite low expectations from most experts coming into the season, thanks to a solid defense and some impressive play from Ryan Tannehill.

On the other side, the Cardinals are one of three undefeated teams remaining in the NFL, along with the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans. Arizona might be the biggest surprise in the league up to this point, after beating the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots in their past two contests.

Arizona has been buoyed by a stellar defense and solid play from Kevin Kolb, leading them to the NFC West penthouse.
