What Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said today

DAVIE–The Dolphins‘ offense is suddenly scoring.

After a start to the season that had coach Adam Gase referring to it as “garbage,” the offense has averaged 31 points, 365 yards and 14 first downs over the past two games. The win over New England on Monday was the first time since the opener that Miami played turnover-free ball, it had no pre-snap turnovers, minimal negative plays and held possession for 36:09.

That has offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen hyped. Here are his thoughts about the turnaround and where things are headed from here:

–He praised the versatility of many skill players who have worked in different roles and said it’s harder than people realize. “It’s tougher than Madden,” Christensen said.

–Jay Cutler has been making excellent decisions over the past few weeks, per Christensen, and that’s the biggest reason the Dolphins’ offense has played so well and avoided turnovers.

–Christensen was excited about Jakeem Grant’s big game, including the first touchdown catch of his career. “We need him,” he said. “He’s a big-play guy.” The Dolphins’ biggest problem in trying to work Grant into the offense is they have to pull out a significant skill player like DeVante Parker or Kenny Stills to make room for him.

–The coaching staff thought left tackle Laremy Tunsil looked very aggressive against the Patriots. They were pleased with his play overall, but are still trying to sharpen some of his practice habits.
