Starters Dominate Again
For the second straight week the Miami Dolphins starters turned in a solid performance. The Dolphins outplayed the Carolina Panthers on all sides of the ball. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another solid performance, completing 10 of 12 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown pass to running back Damien Williams. Running backs Lamar Miller and Williams both had impressive showings, For the second straight game Miller had a big time play that helped the offense move the ball down the field.
The Defensive starters once again held their own, denying the Panthers a touchdown on a unbreakable goal line stand. Corner back Jamar Taylor had a 27 yard interception which was the play of the game. Taylor later suffered a quad injury and was sidelined, results of the injury of yet to be released. Reshad Jones was all over the field tonight making big plays, he seems to be set for a breakout role on the defense this season.
For the second straight week the Dolphins reserves were dismal at best, blowing another second half lead. Matt Hazel, La Michael James and Gerrell Robinson all put in good showings as they try to find spots on the final roster. The Dolphins head back home this week for the preseason home opener at newly renovated Sun Life Stadium. Expect the starters to play into the second half of probably their final action of the preseason for the most part. They will play the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday at 7pm.
