I think you live with Kalen Ballage being the star of LA’s offense. Miami clearly came into the game looking to shut down Herbert and the passing attack.Apparently that was one of the greatest defensive game plans ever, unless the Chargers really came into the game thinking, “we need to get Kalen Ballage the ball as much as possible”...in which case that would be the worst offensive game plan ever.
The Chargers may not be a great team, but they have guys that scare you on offense. It was pretty shocking how little production Allen and Williams had, and how Miami was able to avoid the big play. Another feather in the defense’s cap.
During this winning streak, Miami has been absolutely crushing teams in the first quarter, jumping out to big leads quickly, and then playing a bit conservatively on offense to close out the win. Dolphins were a Ted Karras snap away from going up 21-0 on LA and turning the game into a blowout in the first half.
Again, Miami needs to consistently win these games the next few weeks because LV won and Cleveland won. Bills losing on the miracle ball and the Texans losing was basically a best case scenario for Miami this week.
