A big way to stop the Bill’s’offense is to not give them a lot of time to have offense.

Believe it or not, the Miami Dolphins are 5th in the league in time of possession. I was surprised by that mainly because the Dolphins aren’t running the ball that well, at the moment.

Some of that is because it’s only been two games and because last week the Dolphins found themselves down a ton of points early in the game.

Currently the Miami Dolphins, as a team rank 25th, in yards per carry. That needs to pick up for a multitude of reasons. One of those reasons is that running the ball more efficiently means that high-powered offenses, like the Bills have, will be a bit neutralized as they sit in the glaring Sun. Let those northerners roast as the Dolphin’s offense keeps churning out 1st downs.

Personally, I don’t care how the Miami Dolphins get 1st downs. In the air, or on the ground, the Dolphins are in control. So far in this early season, the Dolphins rank 5th in 3rd down efficiency converting 52% of the time. That needs to continue.

Oh, and would you like to know who leads the league in 3rd down efficiency with a terrifying 60%? That would be the Buffalo Bills.
