Miami Dolphins Week 15 Game Summary

The Miami Dolphins extended their winning streak to six games on Sunday when they won against the New York Jets. The final score of this game was 31-24, keeping the score the same. The main factor explaining why the Dolphins won this game has to do with how Miami played in the second half against the Jets. New York’s attack could not get anything to happen in the second half. This could be due to the Dolphins defense being quite tough early in the game, but really stepping up in the second half.

Dolphins attack

Myles Gaskin hasn’t had much practice time this week as he’s on the Sub/Covid list ahead of this game. He was activated a few days before the game along with a backup rerun of Salvon Ahmed. Gaskin doesn’t get many carries in this game, due to limited practice. However, he is very efficient and has 54 yards of javelin. He got a lot of that measure from a 30-yard shot that put the Dolphins in position to score what would ultimately be their game-winning touchdown.

However, Gaskin is not the story of this ball game when it comes to running backwards. Duke Johnson, who had plenty of reps in practice this week, had an intriguing game of chess. He had more than 100 yards of charge and two touches on the ball. The Jets just couldn’t figure out how to thwart him or close the holes he was running through. Oddly enough, this is practically the best game for any Dolphins active all year back. Gaskin got close to 100 yards but only appeared shy. Johnson will need more use, as he has proven to be a valuable backup

Tagovailoa struggles a bit

Tua Tagovailoa has struggled more in this match than in the past few. He launched a series of dangerous passes that probably should have picked up. However, he paid for two of the passes that were blocked. An interception is a six pick to end the ball game in the fourth quarter. The jet in the back corner Brandon Echols read Tagovailoa’s gaze the whole time and chose its path. The Dolphins’ quarterback ended the day with 196 yards over, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Tagovailoa made a rare touchdown pass for Miami big man Christian Wilkins that blew up Hard Rock Stadium. He threw his second touchdown pass to DeVante Parker, which was a short pass in the remake. Overall Tagovailoa hasn’t had a great game compared to the ones he’s had in the past few weeks, but it was enough for him to win.

Dolphin’s Protection

Defense as noted earlier struggled during the Jets’ early possessions. The Jets’ offensive line controlled the Dolphins’ defence. Zach Wilson has time to pitch and make precise shots to his receiver. This did not last the whole game as the Dolphins defense heated up in the second half. Blitz is working for them, and they’re trying to get to Wilson. The Dolphins had an impressive six sacks of the day. Jerome Baker led the pack, amassing two. Brandon Jones, Andrew Van Ginkel, Zach Sieler and Emmanuel Ogbah also joined the sack party in Miami.

Despite the slow start, this was a very good defensive day for Miami. They held the Jets to a total of 228 yards, virtually giving up in the first half. The Dolphins will need to keep this momentum going as their defense is key for them to run into the knockouts.

All in all, this is a great win for the Dolphins, as they still have hopes of making it to the knockout stages. They are leading 7-7 with this win over the Jets. The Dolphins have a game Monday night next week against the New Orleans Saints, with both teams in the Hunt for the knockout stages. Miami Dolphins Week 15 Game Summary
