There are a couple of reasons why the Dolphins blitz. One is that they do not generate a consistent pass rush with just four players which is why the Dolphins drafted Jaelan Phillips (and then moved him to OLB?). The second reason is that our secondary is stingy and our defense throws off most offenses.

The Dolphins blitzed the second most of any team in Week 1 (45 percent of the time on passing plays) but produced only one sack against New England, even though Mac Jones isn’t known for his mobility. They blitzed 41 percent of the time when the opposing quarterback passed last season, second-most behind only Baltimore.

But blitzing didn’t work against Allen; the Dolphins blitzed him on 31 of 62 attempted passing plays and sacked him only twice in six quarters last season, with Allen producing a 134 passer rating in the two games.

Pittsburgh rarely blitzed him last Sunday and held the Bills to 16 points. That Steelers strategy would run counter to the Boyer/Brian Flores philosophy but seems the smarter way to go on Sunday.

The good news: Allen has fumbled nine times (and lost three of them) in his past 10 games, and the Dolphins are good at creating takeaways.

They actually did with a lot of success until the 4th quarter. Give it to the defensive side of the ball showing the ability to change with their opponent.

According to NFL Next Gen Stats, the Dolphins blitzed Josh Allen on just 25 percent of his drop backs, a big change in philosophy for a defense that blitzed on 40.8 percent of opposing drop backs last season, the second-highest rate in the league.
