Dolphins won’t quit on run like last time

Early this season the Dolphins would spread the field and throw the football, often using the pass game to set up the run. Since interim head coach Dan Campbell has taken over that philosophy has done a 180.

Miami is using more two tight end sets and they’re staying committed to the run longer in games even when they’re behind on the scoreboard.

“It’s different because the last time we played them they kind of wore down and they were trying to pass the ball,” said Preston Brown of the matchup with the Dolphins in Week 3. “We kind of had them in a one mentality kind of thing, but now it seems like if they’re down they’re still going to run the ball. They’re kind of setting that as a mindset that they’re going to run the ball no matter what the score is. So hopefully we’ll still try to get them down on the scoreboard and if they’re going to run the ball, they’re going to run the ball and we’re going to get off the field.”

Miami feature back Lamar Miller is averaging 5.5 yards per carry.
