DAVIE, Fla. -

This season may be slowly becoming a scary nightmare, but surprisingly, playing on Halloween may be a good omen for the Dolphins.

With the Cincinnati Bengals in town to face the Dolphins in a primetime matchup, the fact that they're playing on Oct. 31 bodes well for the home team.

Since their birth in 1966, the Dolphins have never lost a game when playing on Halloween. Heading into tonight, Miami is a perfect 5-0 on this most delightfully devilish of nights.

In fact, the Bengals were the Dolphins last Halloween "victims" when they fell at home to Miami in 2010
