The second half of the Miami Dolphins week 7 game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers was a nail-biter, ending with the Dolphins getting bit. Again, I won’t lament on the ‘fumble’, as at this point we have all moved on. Breaking down the tape for the second half will help sift the good and the bad, particularly the play calling of Dan Henning as Miami moves on to week 8 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
Like always, Miami agreed to kickoff at the onset of the game, so they received the ball at the start of the third quarter but were pinned on their own 10-yard line due to two penalties. Ronnie Brown was able to scramble for 6 on first down while Brandon Marshall was thrown to on the left sideline on 2nd down for 3 yards and Lousaka Polite converted the 3rd and 1 for a first down; the way he’s made a living in the NFL thus far. Play calling by Henning was good and perfected by the offense.
