Emmanuel Ogbah is having a fantastic year for the Miami Dolphins.
3 total tackles, 2 solos, 1 tackle for loss (TFL)
Ogbah has been the biggest surprise of all the offseason signings. He not only leads the Dolphins with 8 sacks, but he also leads that category by a wide margin of 5.5 sacks more than the next closest player.
Many believed that Shaq Lawson would be the signing that helped push this defensive line over the top, but in reality it has been Ogbah. Prior to Sunday’s game, Ogbah had an 8 consecutive games with at least 0.5 sacks.
Although his streak ended, he could look to start a new one against a Jets team that has allowed 26 sacks on the season.
Wilkins has missed the Dolphins past two outings and his impact has been greatly missed. The past two games the Dolphins have allowed 189 rushing yards against the Broncos and 99 to the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Broncos were able to run the ball at will and quarterback Drew Lock had plenty of time in the pocket as the Dolphins couldn’t even garner a single sack all game. Wilkins does not only bring an ability to impact the run game, but he also forces teams to key in on him in the pass game.
It is still uncertain whether or not Wilkins will be back this week or not, but if Wilkins does manage to play he should have a massive impact on the game.
