Miami Dolphins Passing Game: 

The Miami Dolphins showed how explosive their passing attack could be against the Baltimore Ravens. The Dolphins in the first half against the Ravens had trouble putting points up, scoring only 7 points in the first. Going into the 4th quarter, the Miami Dolphins were down 14-35, but that score did not mean the game was over. The Dolphins came back to beat the Ravens, 42-38, with an incredible 4th quarter comeback led by Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins passing game. Tua Tagovailoa was pretty accurate throughout the game, completing 36 out of his 50 passing attempts, with 469 yards, and 6 touchdowns. Tua had a massive amount of help, from both of his speedster receivers in Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. Tyreek Hill, had 11 receptions for 190 yards, and 2 touchdowns, that were both in the 4th quarter, including a 60 yard touchdown reception. Jaylen Waddle had 11 receptions for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns, one of which was a touchdown reception to give the Miami Dolphins the lead with 14 seconds left in the game. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill, proved that they complement each other well, and that they are one of, if not the most explosive duo in the NFL.

Philadelphia Eagles Defense:

After allowing 35 points to the Detroit Lions in week 1 and having to play a Vikings team that scored 23 points on a great Packers defense in week 2, the Eagles defense had to step up, and that's what they did. The Eagles pass rush made Kirk Cousins look very uncomfortable for some of the game, which made Cousins make some bad decisions, including throwing 3 interceptions. The Eagles also did a very good job at stopping the Vikings rushing game, holding Dalvin Cook to 17 yards, on 6 carries. The Eagles did a great job at keeping the Vikings drives short and non-successful. The Eagles secondary also played very well against a Vikings receiving core that is very solid, having one of the best wide receivers in the NFL in Justin Jefferson. Darius Slay did a great job at minimizing Jefferson's production, while guarding Jefferson, and making sure he does not have a big reception. The Eagles defense clicked in every aspect against the Vikings, and looked like one of the most complete defenses in the NFL.
