I was very impressed with our backups yesterday, as they dismantled a Jets team who were coming off a big win with a lot of confidence. I was most impressed with our D line getting so much pressure on the Jet QBs.
The pressure up front allowed our secondary to not have to cover WRs very long. Without Howard, Elliott, and Holland, our middle was exposed. But the backups all played well throughout. I was glad to see Eli Apple get some reps, after a month of being inactive. Cam Smith must not be ready at all.
I was worried before the game, but I was wrong !
Next up is the Cowboys. Although they got lit up yesterday, they can still be formidable, and the Dolphins will need their A-game once again. With the Buffalo Bills as the hottest team in the league right now and getting ready to face the Chargers without a real QB or head coach, I think the Bills will win by 50 or more. We simply have to keep pace and keep that 2-game edge we have.
One game at a time is the only attitude the Dolphins must have. “We have not beaten a winning team” is tiresome to hear, but until we accomplish that, it will remain a fact that we must listen to.
