Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

The Miami Dolphins beat the Bears 38-35 on Sunday to improve their record to 6-3 on the year. And more impressive is the team remains undefeated when Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa starts and finishes a game. Once again the offense led the way. The Miami offense is averaging 27.5 points per game with Tua under center. That’s tied with Buffalo, and only trailing the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. The offense in Miami is very good. Newly acquired Running Back Jeff Wilson Jr. is adding a different element to the running game. Wilson and Raheem Mostert each had 9 carries, but Wilson made better use of his touches.  He caught a touchdown too. Wilson was the least sexy of the Dolphins trades, but he is already paying dividends.

Defense

The Defense continues to struggle. With that said, Justin Fields was spectacular. His 65 yard touchdown run in the 3rd quarter is the perfect synopsis of the Dolphins D. Miami get pressure on Fields, and outside of Lamar Jackson, there isn’t another Quarterback in the league that would do that to the Dolphins. Still have to make that play thought. The defense showed up in the 4th quarter limiting the Bears to just a touchdown. Bradley Chubb had just 1 tackle in his Dolphins debut.

This is a Playoff Team

The Dolphins return home this weekend hosting the Cleveland Browns before their bye week. the Texans are waiting on the other side of the bye. Miami should be 8-3 before a West Coast trip where they will face the 49ers and the Chargers. If the Dolphins can beat the Browns and the Texans, then split with the two California teams they should be sitting pretty at 9-4. They then need to get 2 wins against the Bills, Packers Patriots, and Jets. This is a playoff team. And they have the offense to make some noise once they get into the tournament.

    Tyreek Hill has made an instant impact on the Dolphins offense. He leads the league in receiving with 1,104. That’s 237 yards more than Justin Jefferson, who’s second in the league.

     

  • Jeff Wilson Jr.'s Impact

    Newly acquired RB Jeff Wilson Jr. averaged over 5 yards per carry on Sunday and caught a touchdown . Wilson reuniting with Mike McDaniel looks like a good thing for Dol-Fans. Looks like there is a new RB1 in Miami.

  • Mike and Tua

    Not even  discussion. This is the best QB/Head Coach duo Miami has had since Marino and Shula. This team is never out of a game because of these 2- and maybe add Tyreek to that.

  • Don't Forget About Waddle

    Tyreek has been spectacular. But Jaylen Waddle has been just as impressive this year. He is 5th in the league in receiving yards and leads the team with 6 touchdown receptions.
