Miami morning take: Dolphins' offense

December, 4, 2013
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Wednesday from around the web:
  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald wonders if the Dolphins will ever score 30 or more points this year.
Morning take: Miami’s season-high in points is 27. The Dolphins probably won’t reach 30 points this week. The Pittsburgh Steelers' defense can be tough at Heinz Field.
  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel writes about the emergence of Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon.
Morning take: Vernon is leading Miami in sacks with 10. His performance has kept first-round pick Dion Jordan on the bench all season.
Morning take: Ellerbe saw his share of action in the Steelers-Baltimore Ravens rivalry. Ellerbe knows what it takes to beat Pittsburgh.
  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post points out that the Dolphins’ pass defense is in the top 10.
Morning take: Miami’s pass defense is ranked No. 9 to be exact. The Dolphins’ cornerback play has improved as the year has gone on and so has the team’s pass rush.
