Week 5 -- Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals
Finally, a pretty solid performance from the D in all facets last week, need to continue that again this week if we expect to win. They've got a pretty good OL so rushing the passer with the front four might be tough, but I like our chances across the board especially if we can bring some good blitzes. Seems like this game could expose our Secondary to a certain extent, especially if Hall doesn't play. To counteract this we need to be able to corral Bush like we did MJD a week ago, a tall order considering the Dolphins OL is vastly superior to the one the Jags rolled out there.
Offensively we MUST establish the run game this week. I don't really get tied up in numbers all that much but we need to be much more effective in that area this week. We've been getting away with it for the most part thus far but it could certainly come back to bite us this week. IDC if we get a 100 yards or rush for 4.0 ypc, especially against this D, but we need to be able to keep them honest by proving our ability to run it. I know this OL has it in em, just need to put it all together for once. Ball security certainly needs to be improved as well. I have no doubt our pass game will be effective but we need to have some semblance of balance in order to win.
This seems like it could be a trap game for us but this is the type of game we need to win if we expect to be there in contention at the end of the year. The schedule will soon become much more difficult, so games like these become all the more important. Here's to another victory and Who Dey!
