Finally, the offense picked up the defense.

We’ve been asking for this for a long time. We’ve known for a while that in an offensive league that it was wildly unfair to keep asking the defense to bail out a sputtering offense. Yesterday,  we finally got the offense to do their part.

The defense isn’t always going to have it so it’s nice to know that the offense can go out there and put up a bunch of points if they have to. I mean, the offense should be looking to score a bunch of points regardless if the defense is struggling but you understand what I mean.

And that’s the thing here. The defense now knows it as well. A little bit of pressure should be lifted away from the members of the Miami Dolphin’s defense because they saw firsthand that the offense can score points really fast. Now, will the offense always look like that? No, but the offense showed that it’s possible.

In the AFC, the Miami Dolphins can expect to find themselves in more shootouts if they seriously want to do serious winning. The Bills, Chiefs, Chargers, Ravens, and Bengals can all score a ton of points. Stopping them completely is basically impossible. So, the offense needs to rise up and consistently do its part.

With Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Mike Gesicki, Cedrick Wilson, and company with a confident Tua that is more than enough to consistently score points in this league. I don’t want to see a dropoff on Sunday. Keep the pedal to the metal and act like you’re always down 21 points.
