The Dolphins went into their 3rd home game of the season with a pitiful 1-4 record.
But that hasn’t stopped many Dolfans from supporting their team including the Little Prawn – But you know…
I haven’t seen Prawny since the Tennessee loss.
I hope he didn’t take that loss so badly
NO PRAWNY DON’T DO IT!
Well after throwing himself into a whale’s mouth, I guess Prawny can still watch the game…
That’s a loyal little shellfish
And what a game it was
Where to start?
Oh Yeah…On the obvious!
Jay Ajayi had 204 rushing yards on 25 carries. What a day!
In this photo a Happy Prawny guides Ajayi to the end zone on a long TD run.
Ajayi’s day was one of the the best rushing days in Dolphins history. It reminded a lot of us of the days of Ricky Williams.
Ajayi actually had over 8 yards a carry – and he just kept going and going!
Here Prawny points out what a great job the Offensive Line did for Ayaji.
Albert – Tunsil – Pouncey – Bushrod – James
That was the vision in the offseason and Sunday was the first time we saw it and it worked!
It wasn’t just the ground game – the Dolphins did not give up a sack on Sunday
I didn’t know that was possible.
And that helped Ryan Tannehill a lot.
Tannehill did not have a spectacular day.
He didn’t throw a TD or break 300 yards. But he was solid.
Escaping pressure, hitting tight ends you didn’t even know were on the roster, and he didn’t turn the ball over once.
Tannehill’s day could have looked statistically better but for some drops.
But the formula on Sunday worked
RUN THE BALL!
The Dolphins on the other hand did have a few sacks.
In fact, Rothlisberger had to leave the game in the 2nd quarter
But he returned….to throw some interceptions
I would not call it a dominant performance on defense, but considering the Steelers have one of the NFL’s top offenses, holding the Steelers to under 300 yards was quite an achievement.
Antonio Brown was held to under 40 yards receiving.
The Steelers passed for under 200 yards on that day.
And despite missing some opportunities to score, the Dolphins won!
