Here are a few other defenders on Miami's side of the ball to pay attention to.

Run... Tackle... Cover... The Dolphins check all of the boxes. Here are a few other guys whose names are worth jotting down.

6. David Long Jr., linebacker

David Long Jr. leads all Miami defenders in total tackles (47). He also has a sack and a forced fumble on his resume. Philly will need to know where he is at all times.

7. Christian Wilkins, defensive tackle

This is one of those guys who makes quarterbacks and offensive coordinators stay up at night... when he isn't showing up in their nightmares. The six-foot-four, 310-pound Christian Wilkins is a nightmare matchup who already boasts 24 tackles and 3.5 sacks through three games.

8. Raekwon Davis, defensive tackle

How about more beef along the Fins' defensive line? Raekwon Davis stands at six-foot-seven and tips the scales at 325 pounds. He doesn't dent the stat sheet very often, but he takes up a ton of space (slight pun intended), and he creates opportunities for teammates to make plays.

9. Jevon Holland, safety

Jevon Holland leads the Dolphins in solo tackles (33) and ranks second in total stops (46). He's yet another of Miami's defenders that Philly must account for. Failure to do so could result in this game going in favor of the Fins.
