Miami Dolphins: 10 observations from Week 3 win vs. Bills
Miami Dolphins Week 3 Observations
2. Jevon Holland made the plays he needed to
He hasn’t been as quiet as fellow second-year player Jaelan Phillips, but Jevon Holland hadn’t been making quite the impact that we thought he would, apart from the interception in Week 1. But he bounced back in a big way against the Bills, notching 10 total tackles to go along with 1.5 sacks and a pass defended.
Holland has hopes of becoming an All-Pro safety in Miami’s secondary, and he will get there in no time if he has games like he had against the Bills on Sunday.
3. Jaelan Phillips is still frustratingly streaky
I had it in my mind that I would be keeping a close eye on Jaelan Phillips during Sunday’s game, and he frustrated the heck out of me. He was practically invisible on the pass rush in the first half, and had a missed open field tackle in the 4th quarter that would have gone a long way in sealing the victory.
He finished with a nice tackle for loss and had a defended pass in the closing minutes that was nearly the game clincher, but it seems as though Phillips’ issues with streakiness have yet to be addressed.
