After a breakout season in his first year with the Dolphins, there are high hopes for Emmanuel Ogbah going into this year. Through the first 2 games this year, he has been productive with 7 tackles and a half sack.
His presence is going to be much needed on Sunday. The Dolphins have not had many big pass rushes this year, but when they do, Ogbah has led the way. That needs to continue facing off against Derek Carr.
Carr has been one of the biggest surprises so far this year. His 817 passing yards is 2nd in the league, and he also has 4 touchdowns to go along with it. He even has been able to get young receiver Henry Ruggs to make a lot of plays, something that was lacking last season.
A big pass rush is needed Sunday to help slow down Carr and the Raiders offense. We know what the secondary can do, and now it is time to see the pass rush step up.
Despite being shut down by the Raiders last season, Ogbah is still a major threat and they know that. He is another player who needs to be accounted for and if he gets going, it can make a huge difference for the Dolphins.
