Three Dolphins kneel during anthem at London game

Three Dolphins kneel during anthem at London game”

Across the field at the game at Wembley Stadium, the entire New Orleans Saints team took a knee for a moment, then rose as a group as The Star-Spangled Banner played.

The Dolphins traveled to London to face the Saints and return the worst team in the National Football League after a 20-0 loss. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 50.5 points.

For the Saints, it was an occasionally sloppy but ultimately dominant performance, and one they'll take into their bye week before a home game against the Detroit Lions kicks off a stretch of four home games in six weeks. Today at Wembley Stadium, the thievery continued for the Black and Gold.

The schedule won't make it easier for Miami to bounce back from last week's 20-6 loss at the New York Jets. Miami has hit the under in both of their games, likely due to their offense.

On their first drive of the game, the Dolphins chose to try and fool the Saints defense by running out of the wildcat. He has been sacked twice, however. But the Dolphins offensive line, that was so good at opening up holes past year, struggled all day to create space for Ajayi and Kenyan Drake, who both made tacklers miss for their biggest gains of the day. However, they are giving up 290 passing yards per contest.

A promising first drive had a disappointing ending for the Dolphins, and things didn't get better after that Sunday in London. New Orleans hasn't been dominant on offense, but found a stride over the last two games.

The Dolphins had only one other promising drive, but that one ended with a questionable offensive pass interference call on Kenny Stills when Cutler had hit Jarvis Landry for a first down inside the New Orleans 40-yard line.

I want to see how Saints quarterback Drew Brees attacks a leaky Dolphins' pass defense that has yielded a NFL-high 79 percent completion percentage (49-of-62).

He finished the afternoon with a quiet 268 yards through the air and connected with wideout Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara for scores. However, it was the Saints constantly maligned defense that surprised almost everyone. A report by Adam Schefter states that Ajayi will play in the London game.

I expect the Dolphins to get their running game back on track. I also think the Dolphins will move the ball on this New Orleans defense, which has been very suspect against the pass.
