The Dolphins defense had no answer for Sammy Watkins Sunday, who rolled up 117 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions. It had Miami’s defenders scratching their heads hoping to have a better plan in the second meeting later this season.
“He’s a good receiver,” said Dolphins LB Phillip Wheeler. “But we could’ve done some things to slow him down. We just had a bad day all the way around.”
When asked if there’s a solution to slowing Watkins in the future, Wheeler wasn’t certain.
“Right now I’m not sure,” he said. “We are going to look at the tape and go back to the drawing board.”
Watkins felt the Bills’ balance offensively with 26 pass play and 33 run plays made them difficult to predict.
“It definitely helps us out when we’re a balanced offense and we’ve just got to keep continuing to run the ball, to pass the ball and mix it up a lot,” Watkins said. “That keeps the defense on their toes and switching up coverage and linebackers have to look more for the pass, more for the run. It’s just great to have a defense guessing.”
