The Miami Dolphins came out of yesterday's contest against the Oakland Raiders with a 35-13 victory. Everything seemed to come together for the Dolphins, especially in the second half, as the team ran for four touchdowns on the day, and rookie Ryan Tannehill threw his first NFL touchdown pass.

Last week we added a new story to the Phinsider, a look at the snap counts for each player on offense and defense. We will start with a look at all 17 players who took a snap on offense - meaning a player like wide receiver Rishard Matthews will not be listed on here, since he only appeared on special teams on Sunday.

The Dolphins ran 75 offensive plays this week. Here is the break down of the Miami offense, by position groups, for the Week 2 game against the Raiders (Italics indicate starter):

Thoughts: Just like last week, the same five linemen played the entire game, save for one snap from Martin. Nothing surprising here.

Thoughts: Yesterday saw the Dolphins' wide receivers show up - at least in the form of Hartline. Armstrong had to sit out the game yesterday with a hamstring injury; when he gets healthy and knows the system, Miami could have a decent receiving corps this year.

Thoughts: Last week, the Dolphins played Charles Clay at fullback more than tight end, even listing him as the starting fullback. This week, he was listed as a tight end. Playing either out of the backfield or on the line, Clay only got on the field about once every five offensive snaps. Fasano had the highlight catch of the game, scoring rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill's first TD pass.

Fullbacks

Jorvorskie Lane

Thoughts: Lane clearly saw his role in the offense jump up this week after a four snap performance in week one. And he deserved it. Lane showed he can lead block, clearing the way for Reggie Bush, as well as taking a few carries himself.


Halfbacks

Reggie Bush

Daniel Thomas

Marcus Thigpen

Lamar Miller

Thoughts: Great game for both Reggie Bush and Lamar Miller. Bush probably would have had more carries if Miller had not had a great day for himself. If Thomas can get healthy, the three headed attack the Dolphins can have coming out of the backfield could be scary.
