The Splash Zone 10/27/16: Jay Ajayi Is AFC Offensive Player Of The Week...Again

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours

I feel like I've typed this before, but Jay Ajayi has been awarded the AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. Ajayi has had back-to-back 200 yard games and is only the fourth in NFL history to do so. The Dolphins are entering a bye week and will look to continue riding the Jay Train for the rest of the season. Arian Foster announced his retirement earlier in the week so this is Ajayi's backfield now.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
