Mike McDaniel continues to press all the right buttons.

The Miami Dolphins were well aware that young people were watching their walkthrough practice Wednesday as they geared up for a Thursday Night Football matchup at the Cincinnati Bengals.

Because of that, the team started using 12 men on offense and began running fake plays.

As expected, a leaked video of the walkthrough emerged on social media Wednesday, with Barstool Cincinnati notably posting numerous clips from other sources.


Basically, the Bengals won’t get any insight into what their opponent will be doing when they hit the field later tonight.

The defending AFC champion Bengals will host the undefeated Dolphins at 8:15 p.m. ET from Paycor Stadium.

The Dolphins are trying to show the league that they are a real threat as an AFC powerhouse after a hot start. They’ll have to do so while traveling on a short week following a dramatic and tiring 21-19 win over the AFC East-rival Buffalo Bills.

All eyes will be on Tua Tagovailoa after his scary injury last week had him collapsing on the field.

Meanwhile, the Bengals are trying to avoid a 1-3 start to their season after playing in the Super Bowl last year.
