The Splash Zone 10/18/17: Keep Feeding Jay Ajayi

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.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

We saw it on Sunday, when the team can get Jay Ajayi going, good things will happen. As the game wore on, Ajayi kept running hard and is one of those backs that gets stronger as the game goes on. With Ajayi able to run well, it can open up the passing attack with some great play action plays. If the Dolphins can stick with the running game, they can win any game with the way this defense has been playing lately.

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

Analysis: Swagger is starting to fit these Miami Dolphins to a ‘T’ | The Daily Dolphin
DAVIE — It’s a mistake to say Adam Gase wears his emotions on his sleeve. Not a mistake by much, but still a mistake. Adam Gase wears his emotions across his chest. They’re in his endless supply of motivational phrases he slaps on T-shirts for his players. ZERO IN. STRAIN.
