Here are five keys to the game heading into the Week 10 match between the San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins.
“He is a good football player. He is probably the definition of a downhill, slash, one-cut runner that has the ability on the second cut to bounce it outside. He really has great vision. He has the ability to bounce it strong (so) you see a back that is not only quick to get to the edge, but if you are in his way, he is powerful (enough) to run you over.”
“Miami has an outstanding front, really on both sides of the ball. You see the way they play defensively and the way they are running the football. (They are) protecting the quarterback offensively, (and) that is the advantage of having played them in the past. You have an idea; you have gone against their personnel- or most of their personnel - so that is one thing you take away. You can always go back and watch the games (from) the past couple years and say, ‘Ok how did I do against this player, here are some things.’ But like I’ve said that is all in the past. It is a new year, we have to go out and play our best game as a team and individually in whatever your responsibility this Sunday.”
“(He) is different because the offense has changed over the years. You see a lot of the similarities in some of the things they used to do, but you see the similarities of how Adam (Gase) runs his offense when he was at Denver. The ability to be able to do the types of things that they want to do, so you see the growth.”
“A very good player. Landry is one of the best receivers in the league. In the slot, he’s (particularly) difficult to guard. He does a lot of things for them to get open. He and Tannehill have a great connection.”
“We go through and talk about the plays (we want to run at the beginning of the game) but it changes, there is no script for what we are doing. I think it is just a feel for what we’ve done during the week in practice and we’ve been executing. We would like to do that the whole game, and we’ve been pretty good, we’ve moved the ball consistently. We need to do a little better in the red zone, no question about that, as far as finishing drives. I am glad we are doing it, I don’t know what to say the answer is to why, but I think we have confidence that we can move the football.”
