Who is the only guy who can be the one to take away those big plays by playing center field and not allowing anyone behind him? It is Jevon Holland.
Look for the deep threat balls to not be to Stefon Diggs, but instead to Gabe Davis. However, these get taken away if Jevon Holland doesn’t allow anyone behind him.
Josh Boyer knows how this offense likes to run, and knows who he can and cannot trust in coverage when he sends his signature zero blitzes.
I fear Nik Needham will not have a fun matchup outside with Gabe Davis and it more than likely will become Kader Kohou’s job to lock him up.
Through two weeks Kader Kohou has been graded as the NFL’s best corner. He is going to get all the tests he can get with Gabe Davis’s blend of speed, size, and route running.
He had a very limited effect in last year’s late-season matchup. The Miami Dolphins forced Josh Allen into a lot of check-down passes to Zack Moss and Cole Beasley.
If they can do the same thing again this season that is considered a huge win for the Miami Dolphins. This season already the Buffalo Bills have scored 3 touchdowns on 25+ yard passes.
If the Miami Dolphins can limit this high-powered offense they will give themselves and Tua Tagovailoa a chance to take this game over and win it for Miami.
Jevon Holland has to be a factor in this game and he has to be the type of guy who can disallow huge plays and take control of this team. He is a high-energy player, and he has to bring all of the juice to make this game good for South Florida.
