Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.
The Dolphins are awful against the run, and because they forfeit so many points, teams run against them at will. They are No. 30 with 5.32 running back yards and No. 31 with 5.62 adjusted line yards allowed per run. They’re also No. 31 overall with an 18.4% run defense DVOA (per Football Outsiders).
And in terms of raw volume, no team has allowed more production to opposing backfields than the Dolphins have — 101-535-4 rushing and 10-105-1 receiving) — and that shouldn’t be a surprise: Gone from last year’s front seven are edge defenders Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn as well as tackle Akeem Spence and linebacker Kiko Alonso. Year over year, this defense has just been demolished.
