The Miami Dolphins first place will have a good rest this week. And they should. It all fits together for the team that started 3-0, survived a three-game loss streak, and now has the best four-game winning streak of the season thanks to Sunday 39-17 victory over Cleveland.
Playmaker Tua Tagovailoa plays the best of his two-season career, newcomers Bradley Chubb and Jeff Wilson Jr. made a notable contribution to the Browns victory, the defense signaled that he still has the playmaking ability, rookie Mike McDaniel is making all the right moves, and dreams not only of reaching the playoffs but also of winning the play-offs look like could come true.
Yes, special teams have work to do, but hey, there are seven regular season games left to make that clear.
Now it’s time to bask in the first place.
Oh, and when the Dolphins play again on November 27, they are visiting Houston (1-7-1) to close the so-called “soft” part of the schedule.
Passing the game:
Tagovailoa has had several deadly throws, including touchdowns for Trent Sherfield and Tyreek Hill’s wide receiver and a dart for Jaylen Waddle’s wide receiver. In his last three games, he recorded the best number of passes in his career – 138.7 against Detroit, 135.7 against Chicago and 135.0 against Cleveland. The pass protection was excellent and Tagovailoa was not released and hardly touched. And while neither Hill (five receptions, 44 yards, one touchdown) nor Waddle (four receptions, 66 yards) had great days, others such as Sherfield (four receptions, 63 yards, one touchdown) and defender Alec Ingold (four receptions, 45 meters) yards, one touchdown) were there to do great things. We are getting used to such performances from Tagovailoa, but for a pass and receiver protection package not named Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to get up and shine, it’s huge and bodes well for the future.
Running game: A.
The dolphins rushed to the best 195 yards of the season. It was mostly about Wilson (17 carries, 117 yards, one touchdown), whose physical style and versatile play are just what this offensive needed. But it’s also about the offensive line and blocking it. Wilson had holes. Similarly, runner Raheem Mostert (eight layers, 65 yards). The offensive line led the way to the running game in a spectacular way. Recognize midshipman Connor Williams, guardians Robert Hunt and Robert Jones, takes on Terron Armstead and Brandon Shell, Ingold, sharp tips Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe, and wide receivers Hill, Waddle and Sherfield. Wilson and Mostert were given a yard, but the success of the running game engaged many people. Keep doing it and life will become much easier in the event of a crime.
Dolphins sent a steady stream of plungers towards Cleveland quarterback Jacoby Brissett (212 yards passing, one touchdown, three sacks, 89.2 passes). Among the Chubb (0.5 bag), Jaelan Phillips (0.5 bag), Melvin Ingram (one bag), Christian Wilkins (one bag) and the others, the Dolphins were really good. And the rush came from inside and out. Nobody had great stats, but there was constant pressure. The dolphins had 14 quarterback hits with 35 passes. From the rear, second-tier defender Keion Crossen suffered a shoulder injury but kept his run. Corner Xavien Howard watched the wide-set Amari Cooper and held him at three parties within 32 yards. Yes, the wide receiver Browns Donovan Peoples-Jones had five receptions at 99 yards, including a 38-yard on the game opening disc. But the Dolphins did their job.
Run defense: A-
The Browns runaway Nick Chubb (11 carries, 63 yards) was held in check until late in the game when he broke for a 33 yards touchdown. But considering Chubb is one of the best in the NFL and came in second in the league, reaching 841 yards, the Dolphins did well. Cleveland rushed 112 yards per carry, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. Brissett was a huge contributor with 40 yards on seven cranes, and 27 of those yards fell on two races, one at 14 yards and the other at 13 yards. The bottom line is that the run game was not a factor for the Browns who added 55 yards to the fourth quarter. It should be noted that by this point the game was over as the Dolphins were leading 30-10 in the fourth quarter.
Special teams: D
Kicker Jason Sanders is fighting. This is obvious. He missed two additional scoring attempts on Sunday. Additionally, the Dolphins allowed them to start the game with a 48-yard kickoff that Brown turned into a touchdown att*ck and a 7-0 lead. Punter Thomas Morstead made no attempt at the raft, which says a lot about the Dolphins offensive success. There was nothing significant in a rematch from either team other than the Browns first return from a kickoff, but it should be noted that Mostert had a 24-yard kickoff return.
McDaniel and his employees continue to find the right answers. It’s not just about planning the game, it’s also about cooking the guys when it’s their turn. The success of the game pass rush and run is the best example of Sunday. And it’s not just Chubb and Wilson, new acquisitions. Jones turned to left guard in two good games, replacing Liam Eichenberg. Safety of rookies Verone McKinley (32 snaps) had a good match against the Browns. Second defensive defender Elijiah Campbell (six smack brawls) did well on the spot. But the game plan was also brilliant on Sunday when you consider that the Dolphins won against Hill and Waddle by only combining nine touches for 11 goals.
Stocks: LT Terron Armstead
Have you played Cleveland All Pro Edge rusher Myles Garrett? He was silent all day. Armstead, a three-time Pro Bowl pick, held him up to two att*cks, no bags, no quarterback hits. Armstead, who has been struggling with injuries to the fingers, calves and Achilles, has been absolutely amazing this season, while excluding players like Garrett, who came sixth in the league with 7.5 layoffs, New England’s Matthew Judon (leading in league 11.5 layoffs). ), Minnesota’s Za’Darius Smith (9.5 bags, league runner-up), Baltimore’s Justin Houston (8.5 bags, draw four), Chicago’s Alex Highsmith (8.5 bags, draw four) and Von Miller from Buffalo (8.0 sacks, 5th place). in league). Wow.
Stock down: K Jason Sanders
You can’t miss two extra points in the game. You just can’t. Sanders was an All Pro just two seasons ago when he led the league on points. But so far he has lost touch. He has 27 out of 30 on extra points and 13 out of 17 on goals in the game, including a 29-yard miss in Chicago. Not good.
