Would be shocked if Dolphins Defense gave up more than 13 points per game.

As always, predicated on health and non-key-player injuries, it seems likely the Miami Dolphins defense will be elite for the 2015 football season.

The Defensive Line on this roster is DEEP.  The Top 8 to 9 guys would be starting or first-in players on almost every team in the league.  They set the tone.  And, if the preseason and practices are any indication, they are dominant.   It would not surprise me if the Dolphins overtake the Bills as the highest sack total defense in the league.

That all being said, if this defense gives up on average 13 points or fewer this season, they will give our team an excellent chance to win given the new-found consistency of the offense.

I just hope now that we have this defense, the coaching staff allows our offense to be aggressive.  Take more chances!  You have an elite defense to support you.

I am still predicting between 10 and 12 wins for this team.  They are that good!

Even at 14 ppg, the D total would only be 225 points for the year.
Should be good enough. Cannot see less due to the way NFL rules favor offense.
The offense clicking on all cylinders (to include D.Parker), should give the team at least 21 ppg or 336 total.

When was the last time a Phins team outscored the opposition by over 100 points for the year ? Don't know off hand, but for sure it was a good year, a "playoff" year .

Expect 40 sacks or 2.5 per game, min ! Tannehill - 32 TDs -2 per game. 11-5 record!

I believe your assessment is accurate. Consistency will be key. I'm looking at 10-6 to 11-5 with 12-4 not being impossible.

Totally agree! the one thing, one thing i'm worried about with this team is COACHING. There is no excuse why we shouldn't win the east or come in at a close second with the amount of talent we have. Philbin's decisions scare me and Coyle scares me.
