Ryan Tannehill is playing lately like a quarterback under duress, which he is.
When the Buffalo Bills needed the ball back, Mario Williams knocked it loose.
Miami Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will be riding the bench during Sunday’s game. Ellerbe was declared inactive for the game against Buffalo because of a shoulder injury, and Jason Trusnik will start in his place.
With Ryan Tannehill getting sacked at a record pace, the Miami Dolphins haven’t been able to ease the pressure on their young quarterback thanks to an extremely poor running game.
Miami Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe is doubtful for Sunday’s game against Buffalo with a shoulder injury. Ellerbe was hurt in the Dolphins’ most recent game Oct. 6 and hasn’t practiced this week.
Thanks to the extra rest, the Fins submitted their first injury report in the single-digits since opening week. However in the NFL, the difference between pretenders vs. contenders lies in the ability to execute, and most of all, win the games they’re supposed to. Can Miami take a step towards reaching the AFC’s upper echelon?
Here’s an interesting change of pace: A star receiver wants his team to throw less, run more. And Miami’s Mike Wallace is willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen.
With a matchup against the AFC East leading New England Patriots (5-1) slated for Week 8, the Miami Dolphins (3-2) would be wise not to take the Buffalo Bills (2-4) lightly, even without the services of rookie sensation, E.J. Manuel under center.
After a perfect start, Miami’s losing streak is predicated on the well-documented woes of its offensive line. And while protecting Ryan Tannehill and getting the running game going aren’t the Dolphins only concerns, they certainly merit being at the top of Joe Philbin’s priority list.
The AFC East has been simply known as Tom Brady’s playground. A new defensive scheme installed by Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine will help defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and his teammates prove to everyone that they won’t be pushed around anymore.
