DOLPHINS STA­TIS­TICS

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Dolphins’ keys to vic­tory: QB Ryan Tan­nehill will need to con­tinue to take care of the foot­ball — he has thrown four touch­down passes against two in­ter­cep­tions in the first two games. An­other key for the Dolphins in win­ning their first two games has been their abil­ity to run the ball. In their 20-12 win over the Jets, the Dolphins rushed for 135 yards, in­clud­ing 53 yards and a touch­down by RB Kenyan Drake.

Matchup to watch: RT Don­ald Penn vs. DE Cameron Wake. The con­fronta­tion be­tween two veter­ans on the right side of the line should be fun. Wake is a five-time Pro Bowler, and Penn has been cho­sen for the Pro Bowl three times.

Who wins? The Dolphins ap­pear to be the bet­ter team right now. Ryan Tan­nehill is dong a good job of tak­ing care of the foot­ball, and the Dolphins are com­mit­ted to the run­ning game to take pres­sure off him.
