Earlier today, we took a look at the Miami Dolphins’ offensive snap counts from the team’s blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Where the offense actually showed some progress from the week prior, when the team beat the New York Giants, the defense struggled against Dallas. More is expected from a defense that should be able to utilize multiple Pro Bowl players to attack quarterbacks and stop the run.
