Miami Dolphins 2017 top 10 highlights
By Brian Miller
Xavien Howard emerged from his slumber when the Dolphins took on the Denver Broncos at home. Howard picked Broncos QB Trevor Siemien twice and added a pick-six on one of the returns. Howard showed why the Dolphins drafted him in round two of the 2016 draft.
Tasked with stopping the Broncos top receiver, Howard played his best professional career but it would only last one week.
The following week Howard would one-up his own personal best when the corner shut down Patriots WR Brandon Cooks holding him to no catches on the day and picking off Tom Brady twice as the Dolphins won on Monday Night Football.
Howard’s four interceptions in two games was by far the best two games of the season by any player on the Dolphins roster defensively. His play has given Miami hope that their corner situation is finally in good hands.
