Last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, Lamar Miller rushed for over 100 yards and averaged over 7 yards per carry. This week, he rushed for 64-yards and had two touchdowns, while averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Does this mean he regressed from last week or do you need to look at the bigger picture and look at the flow of the game? If you ask Miller, he thinks he did a pretty good job.
"I think I did pretty good. Obviously I fumbled the ball in a critical situation, and you can't have that. The offensive line did a good job. I just tried to use my speed and tried to break tackles to get positive yards. I give all the credit to the offensive line," said Miller, who has also caught 12 passes for 53 yards this season. "I've been trying to use my abilities to get positive yards."
Throughout the season, Miller has averaged 5.7 yards per carry on 49 carries. He has rushed for a total of 277 yards and has two touchdowns so far, all coming on Sunday. Knowshon Moreno is expected to be back when the Dolphins return from their bye week so it will be interesting to see what happens when he returns and whether or not the Dolphins continue to ride Miller.
