It’s possible Jarvis Landry simply means that it’s important for the Miami Dolphins to maintain possession of the ball on Monday night.

It’s possible Landry, in a comment made on an Instagram post Sunday, means simply that it’s important for the Dolphins to limit the offensive possessions of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

“Take the air out of the ball,” Landry wrote, in a comment attached to a photo in which Landry is flexing two biceps.

It seems that some of the folks on Landry’s popular Instagram account feel Landry’s choice of words may have deeper meaning.

“Lmao shots fired” finszone wrote.

As pointed out by one reader, “Take the air out the ball” is a lyric in a song by Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, titled, “MotorSport.”

Xans, Perky, check (yeah), Bill Belichick
Take the air out the ball (yeah), just so I can flex

Tom Brady is 21-9 against Miami, with 56 touchdowns, 22 interceptions and a passer rating of 92.6.

In the last five meetings between these AFC rivals, Miami has had the edge in time of possession once, a 20-10 victory two seasons ago, led by Dolphins coach Dan Campbell.

So, yeah, maybe the comment was about time of possession.

Or, maybe, you know, it was about that other thing.
