Quick ideas from South Florida Sun Sentinel staffers on the Miami Dolphins’ win over/loss to the Detroit Lions:
Chris Perkins, Dolphins Columnist
The Dolphins did what they needed to do to get the victory, together with clamping down defensively within the second half. They allowed 27 factors within the first half and none within the second half. Not solely, they scored 4 touchdowns on the day, together with two within the second half. Nice job of recovering to get a victory.
David Furones, Dolphins Writer
Strong resolve proven by the Dolphins, particularly with the protection getting second-half stops after the Lions received no matter they wished within the first half. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was environment friendly all through, and it appears to be like like he’s absolutely again, connecting usually with WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle in his second recreation since coming back from concussion. He took benefit of the Lions’ last-ranked protection and banged-up secondary.
Keven Lerner, Assistant Sports Editor
Any highway win is an effective win and the Dolphins get to 5-3. Tua Tagovailoa discovered Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle early and infrequently as they seemed to be uncovered.
Steve Svekis, Sports Senior Content Editor
The Dolphins have been down 14-0, nevertheless it simply didn’t really feel like they have been ever actually behind the eight-ball. The protection seemed terrible, however confirmed some resilience late. Tua was razor sharp, and Tyreek Hill stays the NFL’s most harmful receiver and is again on tempo to interrupt the NFL single-season receiving-yardage document.
This will likely be up to date.
