FBG says: Bad matchup. The Dolphins offense was shut out last week as their struggles continued in all facets of the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for three interceptions and just 89 yards before being benched in favor of allowing Josh Rosen some playing time. Rosen also threw an interception while completing just 39 percent of his pass attempts. Both quarterbacks were pressured heavily as the Dolphins offensive line has been terrible, ranking firmly at the bottom of the league according to Matt Bitonti of Footballguys. Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starter for Week 3, but this situation is fluid and could change mid-game. Rookie receiver Preston Williams has been a bright spot for Miami's offense as he has performed relatively well, all things considered. DeVante Parker, on the other hand, was targeted a team-leading seven times last week and failed to catch a single pass as he continues to disappoint.
The Cowboys should have a clear advantage against a struggling Dolphins offense this week. The Miami offensive line will struggle against what has been a mediocre Cowboys defensive line. Both Demarcus Lawrence and Meliek Collins have had great starts to the season, but the rest of this unit has not impressed in the pass-rushing department. The return of edge rusher Robert Quinn from suspension will provide a much-needed boost to this Cowboys pass rush that has notched just two sacks to start the season. The secondary for Dallas looked decent, but they have yet to face what anyone would label as stiff competition with only Eli Manning and Case Keenum on their resume. This secondary did suffer a big loss from last week, however, as strong safety Xavier Woods injured his hamstring and is expected to miss multiple weeks. The talent behind Woods is thin, so safety now becomes a key weakness for this untested Dallas secondary. Even with that loss, however, the Cowboys will still have the advantage this week against the struggling Dolphins offense.
