Week 6: vs Chicago Bears

All QB vs CHI

FBG says: Bad matchup. Ryan Tannehill had another let-down game for this passing offense last week, chucking two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) while losing a fumble that was also returned for a touchdown. After starting the season hot against some weaker defenses, Tannehill has truly struggled as of late as shown by his 1:5 touchdown to turnover ratio over the last two games. Kenny Stills has gone stale after his Week 1 explosion despite a constant five targets per game. Kenyan Drake saw a whopping 11 targets last week as he had nearly double the targets of any other offensive player, finishing with seven receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown. This usage comes after Drake was targeted no more than four times in the four preceding games with fewer than 20 receiving yards in each outing. Drake has a ton of talent but has been dreadfully underutilized in this offense, so maybe Adam Gase and company will feed him a bit more regularly after the solid performance last week. The Bears defense has been one of, if not the, best defenses in the league this season. Led by the outstanding play of Khalil Mack, the strength of this defense is certainly on the front seven. Despite playing only four games, this unit still has 18 sacks, second-most in the NFL after Week 5. This secondary did struggle against Aaron Rodgers in Week 1, but they have played very well against opposing quarterbacks since then--especially their last outing as this defense single-handily helped put an end to Ryan Fitzpatrick's "magical" start to the season. The Bears cornerbacks have played better in their last two weeks to allow no passing touchdowns, but they still have shown to be human as we have seen the likes of DeSean Jackson and Christian Kirk get loose for some big gains. With hopes to get Prince Amukamara back, this secondary should be in a better spot as he has had a great start to the season. If Amukamara sits though, look for the likes of Kenny Stills to have a matchup advantage over backup cornerback Kevin Toliver on the outside. While Kenyan Drake was coming off a big game through the air last week, he should have his work cut out for him here against the Bears' top-notch safeties and linebackers that have allowed only 89 receiving yards to running backs through four games.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 4 vs NE (4 / 5 / 35 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

This was probably not the opportunity that Osweiler wanted but he got his shot in relief of Tannehill in the 4th quarter. Osweiler looked good but it all came in garbage time against a soft New England defense that was playing with a big lead. He found Frank Gore on a 3rd and 2 play in the red zone. Osweiler rolled right as Gore leaked out into the flat. Gore broke a tackle and then walked into the end zone. His 1 rush attempt for 7 yards earned him second on the team in rushing this week and that is not something Kenyan Drake owners want to see. Osweiler is not taking over for Tannehill and will be relegated to backup duties again next week against the Bengals.


Latest News

Dolphins | Brock Osweiler leads OT victory (Sun Oct 14, 06:57 PM) - Miami Dolphins QB Brock Osweiler completed 28-of-44 passes for 380 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 6 overtime win against the Chicago Bears.

Our View: It was Osweiler's best game of his career even though he threw a near pick six. He could add years to his career as a backup on the strength of this performance fueled by high percentage passes and poor tackling by the Bears.
