Many fans do not think Miami can win this week vs Atlanta. ESPN and Bleacher Report do not think Miami can win this week. However, I believe there are four reasons Miami can win this game should they be able to execute.
1. The Dolphins Running Game- Through the first 4 games the Falcons have allowed nearly 100 yards a game on the ground. That spells well for the Fish this week. I truly think that our offensive line can rally around the circumstances of the last week and have a monster game. If they do, Jay Ajayi could go for 150 yards and 2 scores.
2. Miami’s Wide Receivers- There cannot be many more weeks where Kenny Stills stays silent… right? Jarvis Landry has played well thus far but I believe he has the ability to be that much better. If Parker does not go, Jakeem Grant will step in and I think he can have a positive impact in the passing game.
3. Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons- Just a year ago our LB corp was such an area of weakness. Now, you could argue it is one of the biggest areas of strength for this team. These two guys have a consistent ability to create impactful and positive plays for the defense.
4. Adam Gase- With all of the offensive struggles this season, scrutiny has been bestowed upon Adam Gases’ ability to have a top tier offense. However, it was only a year ago, that we were praising this guy as the best coach we have had since Don Shula. So, in a game like this, I will not discount Adam Gases’ ability to scrounge up an offensive game-plan that wins the Fish this game.
