It’s simple. We all know by now that the Miami Dolphins main ingredient for success is running the ball down opponents throat with running back Jay Ajayi.
The concern is that Miami’s famous unicorn unit isn’t intact. Branden Albert wants to play this week but he tore ligaments in his wrist not even two weeks ago. Mike Pouncey might play Sunday but as we found out last week that could change any minute. And Laremy Tunsil is still a big question mark.
Even while missing all three of those starters most of the game last Sunday, Ajayi still managed to average 4.8 yards per carry, totaling 77 yards on the ground against a stout run defense.
Looking at the San Francisco 49ers run defense all signs point towards success not only for Ajayi but all of Miami’s running backs.
A fellow Twitter follower of mine shared this yesterday:
The 49ers are allowing 5.87 YPC to opposing starting RBs this year according to my calc’s. 100+ yard rushers in 8 of last 9 games. Yikes pic.twitter.com/EVphh3WZBS
