The Miami Dolphins need to make sure that Eric Rowe plays as much as possible because his veteran presence and his skill set are very much needed.
The veteran, the guy this team tried to forget about by not having him suit up for a number of games months ago, is now the guy, I feel, the defense can’t function as well without.
Eric Rowe, once again, showed why he deserves to be starting on this defense especially since Brandon Jones is out for the year. Let’s just see the play.
Just an absolute punishing hit by Rowe that I’m pretty sure broke off a piece of Antarctica. Johnny on the spot, Xavien Howard, picked up the ball and scored. Wonderful stuff that was all made possible by Rowe coming from the other side of the field and delivering the hit.
I’ve always enjoyed Rowe’s game and never understood why Boyer wanted to keep him off the field. We know what he is and what he is an above-average strong safety who has a knack for being a tight-end eraser as long as you’re not Travis Kelce or Darren Waller.
This week, George Kittle is the assignment. His numbers aren’t up to his standard but Jimmy G. is starting to go to him more and more. Put Eric Rowe on him and don’t even think about it.
The last time Rowe faced George Kittle, Kittle had four catches for 44 yards. I’ll take that all day next Sunday.
