Ryan Tannehill looked really good all around. I loved his running. We have been begging him to run more, and it’s starting. His passing looked good too. We don’t need long bombs when he stays effective with the ten yarders. He hit them all day long.
Cameron Wake was quiet for three quarters but had a huge sack/fumble recovery when we needed it.
Lamar Miller is really hitting his cuts well. A lot of those plays look like a sweep, but then he cuts inside with a burst.
Dion Jordan getting suspended has not hurt us one bit.
The offensive line gave up some sacks, but the running plays were there. The 4th-down QB keeper was the play of the game for me. Set the momentum and kept a very very important drive moving in a close game.
That also leads to praise for Lazor’s playcalling today. Drives were kept alive today with some grit and determination, but also because we mixed it up.
The defense had three turnovers and shut down the Bears’s stars. Marshall was a nonfactor. All the hype about Forte proved untrue, as we predicted.
Joe Philbin did not call timeouts to help the opponent.
Caleb Sturgis continues to be a liability.
Brain Hartline only gets his name called for penalties this season.
If the Bears scored toward the end, a very nervous onside kick would have been next. The game was closer than it seemed, thanks to Sturgis.
Hate to keep picking on Jamar Taylor, but he has a chance every week to shut me up, but he never does.
