Jelani Jenkins has been the biggest surprise for the Miami Dolphins in 2014 and he’ll look to continue his impressive ways against the Chicago Bears today when they take the field against a dangerous offense, featuring Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and plenty others. Jenkins talked about the challenges of facing this type of offense and how they are going to work to stop them.
“Yeah, it is challenging. We are going to have to play 11-man football. Everybody is going to have to rally to the ball and we are going to have to do are hardest to get him down. Any quarterback, you want to pressure and get him off of his spot, make him run a little bit and give your guys in the back-end an ability to make a play or chance to make a play. We need to disguise and try to do different things to just get him out of his rhythm.”
Getting pressure on Jay Cutler will be important as it will limit the amount of time Cutler has to stand back and throw to one of his mammoth receivers. If the Dolphins can get as much pressure as they did on Aaron Rodgers, they should be able to walk away with a win.
