1.) Miami Dolphins (5-2) - loss vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 17-31
This game proves that the Dolphins are built for a speed match rather than a physical fight. The Dolphins are now 0-2 against teams with a winning record, having only beaten teams that have no more than two wins on the season.
Miami flew up to Philadelphia for a 5-1 battle with the Eagles. Coming in as the number one ranked rushing offense, Philadelphia blew up the run and only allowed 45 total yards on the ground. While Tyreek Hill managed to bring in 11 catches for 88 yards and a score, the pass attack for the Dolphins was not what it has been all season long.
The true best receiver in this game was AJ Brown, who posted a 10 catch, 137 yard game while adding on a touchdown. Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts took advantage of a weaker Miami defense, throwing for 279 yards and 2 touchdowns but also adding on an interception. He managed to complete 74% of his throws and targeted AJ Brown 15 times.
The Dolphins remain one game ahead in the division but will host the New England Patriots in south beach next Sunday.
