Week 2: vs New England Patriots

All RB vs NE

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Dolphins rushing offense never had a chance last week against the Ravens as they went down 21-0 after they had run just 9 total plays on offense. Kalen Ballage and Kenyan Drake combined for nine total carries this week in a game that the Dolphins just failed to get anything going on either side of the ball. Do not expect things to get significantly better in the short-term as a combination of game scripts and a poor offensive line will likely lead to struggles for this rushing offense for most of the year. Even before the Laremy Tunsil trade, offensive line expert, Matt Bitonti, had this ranked as the worst offensive line in football with Tunsil being their best player on the offensive line. Jesse Davis moved over to the left tackle while the right side of the line is made up of players who have been with the team for less than three weeks in Julie'n Davenport who consistently is one of the worst tackles in football, and right guard Danny Isidora who the Vikings (who have their own offensive line issues) were willing to trade away for a 7th round pick. Even before the game got out of hand which forced the Steelers to abandon the run, the Patriots contained James Conner. Conner struggled for most of the night as averaged just 2.1 yards per carry and did not have a carry longer than 5 yards. Dont'a Hightower and Jamie Collins led the linebacking group and played outstanding as Danny Shelton, Lawrence Guy and Michael Bennett kept the Steelers offensive line from getting upfield. The Patriots looked fantastic, and get back one of their best defensive players in stalwart Kyle Van Noy who missed the game due to the birth of his child. For a unit that struggled last season allowing 4.9 yards-per-carry, it looked much improved after one week and will likely be untested this week in a game script that does not favor the Dolphins running the ball much.
