DAVIE–The final numbers on this Dolphins‘ season are going to be bad, especially for the offense.
Going into the last game of the year, Miami ranks in the bottom six in offensive yardage and points scored. With Buffalo coming up on Sunday, here are offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen’s thoughts:
–The last two weeks have been “bitterly disappointing” because of how badly the team played at Buffalo and Kansas City. He said they drilled into players’ heads how important it would be to play well in cold-weather games, and it didn’t happen.
–Jesse Davis and Sam Young have filled in well at right guard and right tackle, respectively, since taking over those jobs due to injuries. Christensen said the line “has improved and stabilized a little bit.” He also credits Kenyan Drake’s playmaking ability for making the line look better.
–Christensen isn’t enthusiastic about playing the young bench players some snaps this week. He’s much more eager to see how some of the key young players already in the starting lineup finish the season. He said he’s looking for a strong end of the year from Davis, Laremy Tunsil, Drake and Jakeem Grant, in particular.
