The Ravens came to South Florida on Sunday in a battle of two teams that played the 2015 football season like poop.
The Dolphins would win!
The first score of the day would come on a Parker leaping catch. Look at that air. Parker started at caught 3 passes for 63 yards.
The Dolphins actually only had 86 yards passing. So there wash;t much of an ariel attack with the exception of this game.
That’s why I am going to give you a second look at the catch.
Here is a pig’s interpretation of the catch
Most of the offense on the day was provided by Lamar Miller who rushed for 113 yards on 20 carries.
Yes 20 carries! That isn’t a typo.
The Dolphins planned to finally have some balance after firing Lazor…but they may have pushed a little too far in the other direction since the only offense on the day was on the ground.
Ryan Tannehill completed 9 of 19 passes for 86 yards. This is the 4th week in a row in which Tannehill failed to throw complete 60%. Given the nature of this offense – that’s a pretty awful stat.
But the defense had a strong game. Two of our defensive ends stood out. Olivier Vernon and Derrick Shelby. Vernon had 2.5 sacks on the day.
Shelby was also hitting Schaub hard all day and he scored the Dolphins only other TD on tip and interception return. It was a terrific play by Shelby.
And when we talk about defense – you can’t leave out Reshad Jones. Jones had 10 tackles and an interception. His interception set up the Parker touchdown.
If Jones doesn’t make the pro bowl this year, the pro bowl should be thrown in a dumpster…
With the win the Dolphins collect their 5th win of the year. And that probably takes them out of the top 5 of the draft. So say goodbye to a top 5 pick.
