Consistency is Key

As we mentioned, the Fins have won two in a row, and there has been one key factor that has linked those two wins together – consistency. Whereas the Fins weren’t able to put together key drives on offense or stop the opposing team from scoring points early on, suddenly Miami is a team that has put together solid back-to-back showings on both sides of the ball. Here’s a look at some of the biggest areas of improvement:

• Defense: Miami has now gone two consecutive weeks without giving up a touchdown, and in those two games, they have allowed a combined 12 points (6.0 ppg). This is after allowing an average of 23.7 ppg. in their first seven games, which were all losses. Between the last two games, Miami has also sacked the opposing quarterback a total of eight times (five against Kansas City and three against Washington), while the defense also picked off Rex Grossman twice in last Sunday’s victory. In terms of rush defense, Miami has now improved to 10th in the NFL in that category, allowing 105.1 ypg. on the ground. In the past two games, however, Miami has allowed only 88.5 ypg., including only 61 rushing yards against the Redskins.

• Offense: On the other side of the ball, Reggie Bush continues to be a workhorse for the offensive unit. In his last three games, Bush has racked up 242 yards (80.7 ypg.), which is the best three-game stint in his career. He only tallied 47 against Washington last Sunday, but he did provide both TDs for Miami in that game. And, after failing to cross the 20-point threshold since Week 1, Miami has since scored 31 and 20 points, respectively, in each of their last two games. Third down conversions, which was also a point of contention in the beginning of the season, has also gotten better recently as well, as the team completed 8-of-14 third down chances Sunday against Washington.
