Teddy Bridgewater could be the biggest key to success. In fact, he is.
There is no reason to doubt this one fact. If Bridgewater can’t move the offense, and can’t run McDaniel’s system, the Dolphins are going to find it hard to win.
Miami’s running game is not good enough to win in spite of Bridgewater should he play poorly. The good news is, many don’t expect him to. Bridgewater doesn’t have to be the AFC Player of the Week winner, he just needs to minimize mistakes and score points.
This week could be a close game so every drive will be important. I know, that’s one of those statements that shouldn’t need to be said but in this case, the unknown of what Teddy-B will be able to do in his first start is important.
Bridgewater’s success or failures will make or break this game. If he plays well and can find Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins should be able to take care of business on Sunday and eliminate so of the pressure on the defense that could be exceptionally thin at cornerback.
