If you're looking to stretch out the excuse of "I'm watching the football game" a little longer than normal, this weekend is the one for you as the action involving Florida teams starts Friday and continues through the weekend - including some morning football for Miami Dolphins fans. In Saints vs Dolphins the truth is revealed. Something that has plagued the team for two weeks.
But while wide receiver Kenny Stills again wore a garment in support of out-of-work former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick, Ajayi was decked in a hoodie before the game with New Orleans Saints.
Playing with more confidence in the secondary premium this week for the Dolphins when they face Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. They were outgained by the Jets and held to a paltry 30 yards on the ground.
The Dolphins drove 81 yards on the opening drive of the game and had a first-and-goal after a 22-yard completion from Jay Cutler to tight end Julius Thomas on third-and-7. They were going to steamroll the awful New York Jets, and then the Jets. steamrolled the Dolphins? He is 1 of 4 NFL RBs with 1,400-plus rush yards (1,410) and 4.7-plus yards per carry avg. I got to see my family, but this game was the main objective of the trip.
New Orleans picked off Cam Newton three times last week in its 34-13 rout of Carolina. It was another classic Gus Frerotte vs Aaron Brooks quarterback battle where neither guy passed for more than 182 yards and produced one touchdown, two interceptions and a safety between them. It was a far cry from the 122 yards on 28 carries he had in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers. That was not the case last week against NY, however. While the Panthers are a run-first team, the Dolphins (presumably) can do it all.
-Dolphins WR DeVante Parker, who has been a favorite target of QB Jay Cutler on 50-50 balls, vs. Saints rookie CB Marshon Lattimore, the 11th pick of the draft.
Too many National Football League coaches are getting by with whatever they've got at quarterback.
STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES: Saints are 1-0 at Wembley Stadium, where Dolphins are 1-2.
It was the first time the Saints didn't allow a point since December 16, 2012, a 41-0 win against Tampa Bay.
The Saints are elated to have ended their losing streak while picking up a win within the division. Incremental improvement in yards allowed will be adequate if they can take the ball away consistently. The team suspended him for the Jets game before reinstating him this week, when he is expected to play against the Saints.
