What Dolphins associate head coach and special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi said Tuesday:

  • On Cody Parkey’s winning 39-yard field goal vs. the Jets: “At that point, I wasn’t thinking about the field conditions, because we’d kicked earlier.” Said he saw kickers slipping in Saturday’s UM-Syracuse game. “I was concerned more about getting everybody blocked.”
  • ¬†On Parkey’s three winning FGs: Believes the Chargers kick was most challenging because Parkey had just arrived. “New environment, new teammates, some of the guys didn’t even know his name.”
  • On degree of difficulty for the winner vs. the Jets: “A 39-yarder to win the game, those might as well be a 59-yarder.”
  • On Ravens’ kicking game: “Justin Tucker is a phenomenal kicker.” Says Ravens are not afraid to try longer FGs than most teams might skip.
  • On winning 12 straight one-score games: “Our guys do a heck of a job locking in at the end of the game. You could argue we need to do a better job locking in at the beginning of games. … We’ve won in a variety of different ways. It hasn’t been all offense, defense or special teams.”
