Head coach Mike McDaniel leads quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins (8-3) against the Commanders (4-8) in a 1 p.m. kickoff. Fox is scheduled to broadcast the AFC East-NFC East matchup.
Tagovailoa and star wide receiver Tyreek Hill will continue a historic pursuit of 2,000 receiving yards in a single season against the NFL's worst statistical secondary. Hill enters the game as the NFL leader in receiving yards (1,324) and touchdowns (10).

Washington quarterback Sam Howell enters the contest as the NFL leader in passing yards (3,339).
Miami leads the all-time series 9-6 but the Dolphins lost their most recent matchup 17-16 on Oct. 13, 2019 in Miami Gardens.

11:30 a.m. | Jevon Holland is OUT today vs. Washington Commanders
Safety Jevon Holland, who had that dynamic 99-yard interception return last week against the Jets, will miss today's game with injuries to his knees.
Holland did not practice Wednesday and Thursday and was limited Friday.
The Dolphins will have rookie running back De'Von Achane in uniform today. Achane has been hampered by a knee injury and has just one carry for 1 yard since the Oct. 8 game against the New York Giants.
Achane is averaging 11.8 yards per carry, but Raheem Mostert is second in the league in rushing and first in rushing touchdowns, so Miami should have its 1-2 punch today.
The Dolphins also will have left tackle Terron Armstead on the field today.
