"The guy is outstanding out in space," Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. "You've got to be prepared in man-to-man coverage that they are going to feed him the ball. You've got to get him on the ground in a hurry. He has really strong hands in traffic, and you have to try to win the battle up front, one-on-one with your linebacker, let’s say, on his head."
That would be strong-side outside linebacker Jason Taylor, who's still learning the 3-4 position after so many great years as a 4-3 right defensive end.
Gonzalez led all tight ends with 23 receptions of 15 yards or longer. Clark was tied for fifth with 18.
