FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Have you ever parked in a garage and become a little self-conscious about your vehicle, especially if you’re in an expensive area? Sure, your car gets you from A to B and does its job, but the word “practical” is probably one of the first things that comes out of your mouth when describing it. As you look for a spot, you naturally see a few sports cars that could certainly run laps around you. And god forbid you have to park next to one of them. That direct side-by-side is a visual of two different machines entirely, even if they are designed to do the same thing.
That’s sort of how I saw the Dolphins and Patriots on Sunday as Miami rode to a 24-17 win in Week 2. They’re two offenses designed, of course, to try and score, but one can do it in a much faster and more impressive fashion while the other drudges forward and sometimes breaks down.
While it wasn’t a full-blown offensive spectacle by the Dolphins en route to their win to move to 2-0, whenever they needed to tap on the accelerator, it was available to them. Need a slip screen at the line of scrimmage to convert a second-and-19? No problem, Jaylen Waddle can handle that. Need a back to run 21.62 mph for a back-breaking touchdown in the fourth quarter? Raheem Mostert is your guy. Heck, even their coach is fast!
