Miami must continue to have balance: The Dolphins had one of their most impressive offensive outings (180 yards rushing, 209 yards passing) in their Week 15 beatdown of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Seattle crushed Buffalo last weekend with the Bills' defense giving up several big plays on the ground as well as through the air. Miami has improved its execution in recent weeks and is tough to defend when there is a balanced approach with its play calling. Look for offensive coordinator Mike Sherman to rush the football with featured back Reggie Bush while mixing in high-percentage passes for his rookie quarterback on early downs.
Don't know why some are thinking Reggie won't be hear next year? At times today it looks like Tannehill doesn't have anyone to throw the ball to.. Why don't they run Miller more??? He did a good job averaging 7 yards a carry..
