MIAMI – The Dolphins got the regular season started with a win in Washington, yet we seem to have more questions than answers following the victory.

What happened to a defensive line that was supposed to be so dominate?  What happened to the calm and comfortable Ryan Tannehill from the preseason?

While I understand why fans and media would have some concern, I'm not as worried about what I saw because of the way Miami responded in the 2nd half against the Redskins.

The Dolphins didn't allow a point in the 2nd half, and after following behind 10-0, they scored the final 17 points of the game.

Miami now heads to Jacksonville for the 2nd game of the season.  I expect the Dolphins to look much more like the team we expected.

Look for the defensive front to stop a very mediocre Jags running attack and to pressure Blake Bortles into a couple of mistakes.

Meanwhile, I expect to see more Lamar Miller this week and that will open things up for Tannehill to find his weapons.

Prediction:

Dolphins- 24

Jaguars- 13

 

Season prediction record: 1-0
