The New England Patriots defensive game plan was to take the deep ball and the middle of the field out of the Miami Dolphins offense. While the plan sort of worked, it did not matter as the Dolphins relied on the run game and short passing attack. It was great to see Mike McDaniel not have an ego and force the deep ball against a defense that was playing three high safeties. Credit to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa too for getting the ball out so quickly that it negated any pass rush the Patriots sent. This Dolphins offense is so versatile in the way they can attack defenses, so it will be interesting to see if an opponent can crack the code to slow them down.
