The Dolphins offense is the worst in the league on third down converting at just a hair over 31 percent. The big reason why is they’re usually in long down and distance situations.
Through 16 games this season, Miami on average has the second-most yards to gain to keep a drive alive. The Dolphins typically need close to 8.5 yards to move the sticks on third down.
Only the Bears have averaged a greater figure to reach the yard to gain on third down.
