With Zach Taylor taking over as the new offensive coordinator for the Dolphins, the former coordinator Bill Lazor might have done a better job. The offense struggled with having only eight first downs for the game. Ryan Tannehill did not have his typical high stat game and was only 9 for 19 attempts with 86 total yards and a touchdown. Lamar Miller was the work horse for the Dolphins’ running game with 20 rushes for 113-yards. Neither Miller nor Jay Ajayi had a rushing touchdown in Sunday’s game.
Wide receiver DeVante Parker had a great game in his first start for his rookie season. He had 63-yards on three receptions and had an incredible diving catch to start off a two touchdown turnaround in 20 seconds to give Miami the lead. The second TD came when defensive end Derrick Shelby came up with a batted pass, which he came down with, and ran it in the end zone for a pick six and his first NFL touchdown. Standout Dolphins’ receiver Jarvis Landry was shut down for most of the game and will look to bounce back when Miami plays on Monday night against the New York Giants. I guarantee, you will see the "big play" Jarvis "Juice" Landry we are accustomed to seeing on Monday night.
I wish there was more I could say about this game, but offensively it was a dud of a game and if it was not for the defense standing up to a struggling Baltimore offense, the outcome might have been different for the Miami Dolphins who scored two big touchdowns in a short amount of time to pull the momentum from the Ravens and solidify the win.
