Thoughts:
Odrick saw his snaps jump way up this week, to the point that he was only out of the game for one snap. The Dolphins used a front line of Wake, Odrick, Shelby, and Vernon at points during the game.

Thoughts: Misi missed time during the game because of a sprained ankle, with Trusnik filling in for him. Otherwise, nothing overly noteworthy.
