Aside from the much improved pass rush, the All Pro quality CB work, Miami's play at safety has been outstanding.

Barry Jackson (Miami Herald) wrote:
The Dolphins are getting their best safety play in years, even after moving on from former Pro Bowler Reshad Jones this past offseason. Pro Football Focus rates Bobby McCain the 11th-best safety in football and Eric Rowe 24th among 87 qualifiers.

Beyond effectively helping defend the deep middle, McCain this season has allowed only three completions in seven targets against him, for 18 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. That computes to a 10.7 quarterback passer rating in his coverage area — best among NFL starting safeties.

Rowe has a 74.1 passer rating in his coverage area with an interception and one touchdown allowed. Since moving to safety last October, he has defended tight ends more effectively than anyone in recent Dolphins history.

Funny when you pressure the QB with the front 7 all the sudden the safeties play better. Hmmmm

You're right Mak but that doesn't take away from the job they're doing. Communication has been better than it has been since.... Jarvis Williams and Louis Oliver? Anyway, a long time. And Rowe consistently erases the opposing TEs. And; their tackling in space has been terrific.

IMO Rowe legitimately deserves pro bowl consideration.

It's been a long time since we are able to take opposing teams tight ends out of the gameplan.

They did make Kittle, their only real test to date, invisible but he had no chance with a gimpy Garoppolo. But KC is a whole different animal so no matter what happens I wouldn’t judge our secondary harshly. With Mahomes at QB and those other weapons they have our boys will be plenty busy.
