Read this...Found it on Buffalo Rumblings

With the hated Miami Dolphins up next on our schedule you know that Dick Jauron and Perry Fewell are gameplanning right now on how to shut down the Phins "Wildcat" formation.

The fact is that Miami has won the games it has because of the "Wildcat", their defense is nothing to fear and with that formation not withstanding, their offense is rather predictable (as Chad Pennington offenses tend to be). Nonetheless, the "Wildcat" alone has propelled the Dolphins to victory this season as the play leaves so many options for the offense and can confuse the defense as the ball can end up in the hands of Ricky Williams, Ronnie Brown, Chad  Pennington, or anyone else.

After watching the highlights from the Ravens - Dolphins game it was clear that the key to Baltimore's win was that its defense absolutely shut down the "Wildcat" formation and never let it beat them.

Any thoughts on how our defense can do the same? I think this is the biggest question going into this Sunday. If we get burned by the formation we will lose, if we have it figured out, the Dolphins will not be able to stand toe to toe with us in any area of the game.

It seemed to me, and I could be wrong as I saw mimimal highlights, that the Ravens put down the "Wildcat" by blitzing linebackers and safeties up the middle and relying on their big defensive line to spring them through by eating up blocks, thereby letting them disrupt the progression of any "Wildcat" plays. Thoughts? I'd love to hear what everyone thinks the Bills defense can do to shut down the Dolphins confusing formation.
