Considering the Miami Dolphins are 10-point underdogs on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, it’s no shock that national media members across the country are swarming to the black and gold.

What is mildly surprising is there is one brave soul out there who is siding with Miami: Ryan Van Bibber, an NFL Editor for SB Nation.

I reached out to Ryan, pestering him as to why he daringly chose to ink his name with the underdog Dolphins.

“I wish I had a more detailed explanation, but I’m picking the Dolphins based mostly on my gut here,” Van Bibber said. “They’ve been a resilient team all season, vastly different from the Dolphins of the past. Their hope is riding purely on the running game. Keep Jay Ajayi moving, keep the Steelers offense off the field, and they can make some things happen.”

Ryan Van Bibber has the guts.
