DAVIE–The Dolphins‘ offense is sputtering so far this season, and that falls on coach Adam Gase. Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen has a role in fixing it, too, and he’s optimistic that things will get better quickly.

Miami has scored two touchdowns in three games this season, one of which being a meaningless score in the final seconds of the loss to the Jets. The upside for the Dolphins is they’re facing a Tennessee defense that’s a mess right now, coming off a 57-point meltdown against the Texans.

Here are Christensen’s thoughts on the offense heading into the Titans game:

–The Dolphins’ best run blocker on the offensive line has been Mike Pouncey. He’s graded out very high the first three weeks.

–The main thing Christensen wants to see from the offense is start converting third downs. Miami is last in the league at a 21.2 percent conversion rate.

–Christensen said his main role in fixing the offense is giving Gase ideas and trying to take minutia off his plate. He also tries to keep him from pressing during games.

–He spent the walk from the facility to the media workroom trying to think of positives about the first three games and didn’t come up with much. He said the silver lining right now is the Dolphins can escape the first quarter of the season at 2-2 and regroup from there.
