Rocky Gaziano:The Latest Obstacle For the Dolphins Offense? A Tough Bills Defense



Rocky gaziano

Rocky gaziano: The Miami Dolphins have been dealing with a lot of obstacles on the offensive side of the ball this year. They have faced some stiff competition in the form of the Chicago Bears, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New Orleans Saints, but now they face the toughest obstacle of all: the Buffalo Bills.

It’s going to be a great test for the Dolphins offense, as they will try to get back on track after an offensive performance against the Saints that saw them drop to 0-3 after a four-game winning streak. But if the Dolphins can beat the Bills, they can take another step toward securing the NFC East crown.

Rocky Gaziano: Miami Dolphins vs Buffalo Bills

Rocky gaziano

The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills are on the cusp of playoffs and this week’s matchup is a key for both teams. The teams are tied for first place in the AFC East. However, the Dolphins have a pair of losses on their hands while the Bills have three straight wins. So who is more likely to win this game?

Both offenses have the potential to outscore their opponents. But the Dolphins’ passing game is weak, while the Buffalo Bills’ run defense is very good. And the Dolphins are a bit inconsistent on the road.

Neither team has a strong cornerback corps, but the Bills have the advantage when it comes to rushing the ball. That’s what they did against the Jets on Sunday. They ran man coverage on about 40% of their defensive snaps.

This was a big part of the game’s success, as the Bills’ defense allowed 5.2 yards per dropback. They also got the ball on the Bills’ 23-yard line after a safety, which gave them another chance to drive for a score.

The Dolphins’ passing game is a weak point, and they need to do a better job running the ball. The Dolphins can throw deep balls, but they need to use the whole field.

Rocky gaziano: Miami Dolphins vs Steelers

The Miami Dolphins have won two of the last three games, but the road to the Super Bowl will still include the Buffalo Bills. They play in Foxborough on Sunday.

Rocky gaziano Despite a loss at home to the San Francisco 49ers, the Dolphins are looking to rebound against a tough Bills defense. That should be no problem. But the defense has struggled to slow down the running and passing attacks of opponents.

In their last three games, the Bills have allowed an average of 5.2 yards per dropback and a total of 5.2 yards per possession. This means that they allow the sixth-fewest yards per attempt when an opponent holds the ball for longer than 2.5 seconds.

It’s important to remember that the Patriots are currently 0-4 against current playoff teams. As a result, the Patriots hold the tiebreaker over the Dolphins.

While the Dolphins have the talent to beat the Bills, they need to improve their offense. If they want to win, they need to get their running game going, build an efficient passing game and control the clock.

Using motion in their offense can help counteract physical play at the line of scrimmage. Ideally, they should use the area in front of the first down marker and in the middle of the field. These areas will give them a chance to run the ball and get a deep pass off.

Miami Dolphins vs Bengals

The Miami Dolphins are coming off two disappointing losses against the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. After a promising start of 8-3, the Dolphins are now two games behind the Patriots and two games behind the Bills for the seventh spot in the AFC.

Miami has been struggling to score points in recent weeks. After a 31-28 win over the Jets in Week 7, the Dolphins went 0-6 in their next two games. They gave up a minimum of 32 points in both of these road losses.

However, the Dolphins can get back on track with a win over the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night. It’s imperative the Dolphins offense is quick and explosive against the Bills defense.

Jay Cutler has been inconsistent. He’s been sacked seven times and he’s lost two interceptions in the last two games.

The Miami Dolphins’ passing game has also been a major problem lately. Tua Tagovailoa has been completing less than 50% of his passes. This has led to a lot of bump coverage and poor timing between him and the receivers.

As a result, the Dolphins have allowed a lot of yards through the air. Their passing yards per attempt have dropped to a league-low 6.2

Golden State Warriors

Golden State Warriors snapped an 11-game road losing streak with a 121-108 victory over the Houston Rockets late on Monday. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 59 points to shine for the Warriors.

The Warriors won on the road for the first time since a January 30 victory at Oklahoma City.

Curry finished with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists while Thompson added 29 points and seven rebounds. They combined to shoot 21-for-44 overall and 10-for-28 from 3-point range to pace the Warriors (37-36). Jonathan Kuminga chipped in 17 off the bench for the Warriors.

Following a back-and-forth third quarter that featured five ties and eight lead changes, the Warriors seized control with an 18-6 rally early in the fourth. Golden State made its first four 3-point attempts in the period and Kuminga added a pair of breakaway dunks that fueled a run to a 108-93 lead.

Kuminga helped stabilise the Warriors late in the third after Houston (18-54) grabbed a 78-77 lead on an Usman Garuba corner trey with 2:26 left in the period. Kuminga immediately followed with a 3-pointer and added a 17-footer as Golden State carried an 84-80 lead into the fourth.

The Warriors were victorious despite committing 20 turnovers that Houston parlayed into 25 points. Golden State countered those miscues with 26 points off 18 Houston turnovers.

All five starters scored in double figures for the Rockets. Rookie Tari Eason posted his seventh double-double with 21 points and 12 boards while fellow rookie Jabari Smith Jr. also recorded a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Jalen Green scored 20 points for Houston, which was without starting centre Alperen Sengun (illness).

The Warriors ran an offensive clinic in the first quarter, scoring 11 points in transition and logging nine assists on their 11 field goals. They used a 15-3 run to secure a nine-point lead, though Houston cut it to 26-21 by the close of the first.

The second quarter was awash with turnovers. Curry tallied 15 points in the period and was instrumental in keeping the Warriors ahead despite their 10 giveaways that Houston converted into 10 points. The Rockets weren’t much better, with their seven turnovers yielding 10 points.

Edmonton Oilers Survive With Three Goals Disallowed and Win in Overtime



Edmonton Oilers Survive

On Monday night, the Avalanche ran the Oilers off Rogers Place with seven goals against Jack Campbell and an Edmonton team so far from their ‘A’ game they almost ran out of letters.

Thankfully for the Oilers, their video coaches came to their rescue with three goals off the board after challenges — two on narrow offsides and one for questionable goaltender interference — which allowed Edmonton to pull off an amazing 5-4 victory in overtime.

“Our group needed more time,” defenceman Darnell Nurse, who scored with 14.3 seconds left in extra period. “But we remained resilient. There are nights you don’t feel it but you still have to find a way to win and that was our plan tonight.”

Without video coaches Jeremy Coupal and Noah Segall, the Oilers would still be reeling and wondering what went wrong against a team with only two wins in 16 games. Their efforts saved the squad from embarrassment and set up two pivotal points for future success.

“Those were some big calls,” Edmonton Oilers centre Nick Bjugstad remarked. “Our video guys and coaching staff were right on it; there was no hesitation. That’s an important part of the game and we rely on those guys to assist us – which they did tonight. It definitely changed the game.”

No doubt about it: Edmonton conceded seven goals for the third time in eight games with just an inch or two to spare. That needs to be addressed, but for now they will take comfort in banking these two points.

“We don’t ignore what led up to those (disallowed goals against),” said head coach Jay Woodcroft. “Even if it’s just an eyelash here or there, those are shots you don’t want in your net.”

“There are things we can improve in our game, but I was proud of our will to win and our ability to find a win when an opposition goaltender was having an excellent night,” McGrath said.

“We didn’t play the game we wanted to in the first two periods, but we knew what the stakes were and our players found a way to earn those two points. Nobody is blind to the fact that there are still issues we need to address,” Leboeuf concluded. “While some aspects need improving, everyone agrees on one thing: there are things that need to be fixed.”

At the other end of the ice, Campbell made his first start since March 4 and spent most of the evening trying to stay on track. He allowed four goals in the opening 40 minutes, was saved by the goal post on another and had three goals against reviewed; however, he finally found some consistency down the stretch and secured victory.

“Jack was just like our team,” Woodcroft said. “He found a way to win on an off-kilter night – that was all that mattered for him and his self confidence. Getting two points for the team is all that mattered to him.”

His night was a 60-minute adventure, but he received no assistance whatsoever from his teammates who were consistently one step behind until the third period when they came alive.

“Last week we had three good opponents in playoff race battles, so this might have been an opportunity to breathe a bit,” defenceman Mattias Ekholm, who scored twice including the game-tying goal with 3:47 left in regulation, said. “I don’t know what you want to call it; we could’ve been better but these games are hard. You need to build yourself up and get going – and we did just that.” “It could’ve been much better but these games are tough; we snuck it out but tough things happen sometimes and move on,”

Edmonton’s problems began early when Campbell let in his second shot of the game at 1:12. Fortunately, it didn’t count due to an offside call, and four minutes later Alexander Barabanov scored for San Jose with a goal.

Nick Bjugstad tied it in the first and Kailer Yamamoto made it 2-1 early in the second. But San Jose scored four times (only three of which counted), while Edmonton responded with Ekholm’s first goal of the night.

Noah Gregor scored on a two-on-one early in the third to make it 5-3 Sharks, but an offside challenge revealed he was inches offside.

“Video coaches deserve more credit than they get,” Ekholm lamented. “They put in long hours and are relentless – but what’s their margin for error? Offside can sometimes be by inches – yet you expect them to always be right. That said, video coaching won us the game tonight.”

LATE HITS — Yamamoto’s 10th goal of the season gives Edmonton an incredible 11 players with double-digit goal scoring this season. Erik Karlsson had two goals for the Sharks in 27:57 of ice time while Evander Kane went minus three for Edmonton.
