Nothing stands out more than the early dropped touchdown pass by Kenny Stills, who caught only one of five targeted passes on the day. The offensive line gave up four sacks, 4 tackles for loss and eight quarterback hits. We knew going in that run blocking wasn't their strength and they did nothing to change that perception. 3.2 yards per rush isn't very good, but to they're credit, they were playing against a tough defense.
Speaking of tough defense, Ndamukong Suh played a solid game. Four tackles - two solo, one sack, one tackle for loss, one pass defensed and three quarterback hits. Cam Wake was limited to one quarterback hit and was penalized for roughing the passer.
The Dolphins other blue chip player, Safety Reshad Jones, led the defense with twelve tackles - six solo, one tackle for loss and one pass defensed.
Kiko Alonso, Isa Abdul-Quddus and Byron Maxwell, along with rookie cornerback Xavien Howard all played well enough to inspire confidence in their abilities. Along with Jones, this group had half of Miami's tackles and along with Suh, all five of Miami's passes defensed.
An honorable mention to Dolphins Punter Matt Darr for his 46.7-yard average that kept the Seahawks at bay for most of the game.
Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson, injured against a relentless Dolphins defense, still mustered the game-winning drive.
It was an entertaining, tough effort by the Dolphins defense, but playing over half the game took physical toll on them with several injuries, hopefully none seriously.
