The 8-1 record down the stretch last season that saw the Fins fall just short of the playoffs was made possible by the Miami Dolphins defense. Through Weeks 1–8, the Dolphins defense gave up an average of 29.1 points, 406.9 yards, and 1.5 sacks per game. However, in the final nine games, they only allowed 15.6 points, 276.9 yards, and 4.0 sacks per game.
Emmanuel Ogbah recently stated that he thinks the Dolphins defense can continue to improve until the year 2021 after signing a four-year, $65 million contract to play for Miami this summer.
Because we all know one another, the defense this year may be dangerous, Ogbah added. “We are all aware of each other’s abilities, as well as our strengths and flaws. We’re all going to support and challenge one another. The defense is in an intriguing phase right now. The Dolphins defense features many outstanding players in addition to Ogbah, including Xavien Howard, Byron Jones, Jaelan Phillips, and Melvin Ingram.
