10 observations from Miami Dolphins Week 12 victory
9. Waddle has the dropsies
Jaylen Waddle has been one of the most productive players on the team and one of the best wide receivers in the league, but he had some trouble on Sunday against the Texans. He did have five catches for 85 yards, but he dropped two catchable balls that killed promising drives for Miami.
The second-year wide receiver has very few holes in his game, but the reliability of his hands have come in to question. Sometimes it seems as though he has more trouble with the easy ones than with the difficult catches.
10. A win is a win, but we didn’t learn much
We are going to find out what the Dolphins are really made of during the final six games of the season, but there wasn’t much to learn on Sunday due to the quality of the opponent and the status of Miami’s starters.
It was clear from the beginning that Houston was outmatched talent-wise, as the Dolphins had little problem on either side of the ball. It is always nice to see your team dominate, but knowing that the Texans came in to the game with a 1-8-1 record and clearly the worst team in the league, it is hard to judge where Miami stands after the bye week and before their road trip.
