Adam Gase is injecting excitement into the Dolphins‘ offense. After years of being bland and boring, Miami is hitting on big plays at a higher rate than any team in the NFL this season.

According to SportingCharts, the Dolphins lead the league with 10.2 percent of their plays meeting the criteria of either a 10-yard run or 25-yard pass. They have 50 rushing plays of at least 10 yards and 30 passes of at least 25.

No other team is in double digits. Buffalo is second at 9.8 percent. Half the league is under 7.2 percent.

The Dolphins never topped 7.6 percent during Joe Philbin’s time as head coach and bottomed out at 5.8 percent in 2013, which ranked 28th that year.

On a related note, Kenny Stills’ 52-yard score against the Jets made him the first Dolphin in 30 years (Mark Duper) to record three 50-yard touchdown catches in a season.
