The Cowboys might be catching the Dolphins at the perfect time for a pivotal Week 16 matchup, as Miami is dealing with a number of injuries that could impact the game.

According to Wednesday's injury report, the Dolphins could be without as many as 12 players, including the entire offensive line.

Let's take a look at the report and discuss the potential ramificaions in Cowboys vs. Dolphins.

Dolphins Injury News Gives Cowboys Big Advantage

That's a lot of players! Taking on a stout defensive line led by Micah Parsons is tough enough when your whole offensive line is healthy, but trying to face Parsons with a group of back-ups? Good luck.

Mostert and Achane both played last week and I'd anticipate they'll be good to go, though Hill could miss his second straight game.

Tyreek has been the best WR in the NFL by any measure this year. If the Dolphins don't have him or even some of the offensive line, the Cowboys would have a great chance to emerge victorious.

It's worth noting that the betting odds have not moved since the injury news. The Cowboys opened as 1.5-point underdogs on Monday and the line has remained steady, indicating either that sportsbooks already considered potential injuries or that the injuries aren't overly concerning.

With a few days left before the game, we'll see how healthy the Dolphins wind up. Nonetheless, this is a positive sign for the Cowboys' chances to get back in the win column.
