Julius Jones made a strong case for remaining the Seahawks' primary running back during a 21-19 defeat to the Dolphins in Week 10.

Jones carried 16 times for 88 yards. This included seven carries for 72 yards with three wide receivers and one tight end on the field for Seattle. The final three runs from this group featured a 6-yard gain on third-and-4, a 16-yarder on second-and-3 and a 33-yarder on first-and-10 as Seattle moved closer to its final touchdown.

The Dolphins shut down Seattle's base offense (2-RB, 2-WR, 1-TE). They held Seattle to 2.8 yards per pass attempt and one first down on 12 pass plays from this group. They held the Seahawks to 3.4 yards per carry with two first downs on 11 rushes from this group.

The Seahawks, playing without tight end Will Heller, ran zero plays from double-tight-end groups. They were effective from their "Zebra" personnel group (1-RB, 3-WR, 1-TE). Seattle averaged 9.0 yards per carry with six first downs on nine rushes from this group. The passing numbers -- nine first downs and 6.5 yards per attempt on 20 attempts -- took a big hit when receivers dropped several passes.
