The Dolphins entered Thursday’s game against the Ravens with the NFL’s worst offense.
They looked very much like it in a 40-0 road loss.
Bowen: … Van Noy becomes a high-impact player in the Patriots’ scheme. Look for Belichick and his staff to put him in situations that maximize his ability.
Foxworth: I wouldn’t be surprised if Belichick happens. If Bill and his coaching staff, through schematic innovation, manage to turn a clear deficiency into an advantage. I don’t know how they would do it. But my guess is that they would use more safeties in place of linebackers, and overload blitz more often.
Bryant on suspension: ‘Nobody thought I was coming back’Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who’s being benched Sunday over social media use, says while Pittsburgh stood by him after his suspension for the 2016 season, he worked on his own to get back.
It was hard to believe in Arizona with Palmer. It’s a team that looks easy to dismiss without him.
The 33-0 loss to the Rams was the fourth time in seven weeks and the third week in a row that the Cardinals allowed at least 33 points. They struggled to run the ball prior to trading for Adrian Peterson, and while the veteran burst for 134 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6, he was held to just 21 yards a week later.
Many of those problems running the ball have to do with the offensive line. The unit has problems clearing space and allowed Palmer to get sacked 22 times in 2017 before his injury.
