New, comments

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins lost to the Carolina Panthers 31-30 in a Saturday night Preseason contest. While everyone would rather their team win any game in which they play, the wins and losses of the Preseason are not actually a concern. Instead, the Preseason is about getting some repetitions for the starters and getting some playing time - and film time - for the reserves. On Sunday, we took a look at the offensive snap counts for the Dolphins. Today, we take a look at the defense:
