Offensively, the Dolphins put in one of the worst displays of probably any NFL team all year. They racked up a meager 103 total yards on offense. Ryan Tannehill finished with just 82 yards passing and Lamar Miller was the leading rusher with just eight–count ‘em–eight yards.
Yeah, definitely a candidate for worst performance of 2013.
But, veteran left tackle Bryant McKinnie believes that he knows why.
“They were getting [a jump]. I feel like they were getting a rhythm with our cadence,” McKinnie said after practice Tuesday. “Me being around, I knew some things that we can do to help counter that. So I definitely brought that to my offensive line coach.”
With these teams seeing each other twice a year, this is certainly a plausible theory. But, at the same time, you have to put some blame on the Miami coaching staff for not changing things up a bit, if this was the case.
