This Next Gen stat shows why Ravens DBs couldn’t keep up with Dolphins WRs

·1 min read

The Miami Dolphins offense put on a show against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, scoring six passing touchdowns, five, of which, came in the second half.

Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle were arguably the biggest reasons for the comeback. The incredible duo was targeted 32 times, recording 22 receptions for 361 yards and four touchdowns.

Their speed and stamina put so much pressure on defenses, and even though Hill exited the game for a bit with cramps, Miami was still able to move the ball.

To what extent did the Dolphins’ weapons work Baltimore’s secondary? According to Next Gen Stats, Ravens defensive backs traveled 6,131 yards on pass plays throughout the game. That’s the most by any group since the start of 2021.

That doesn’t include plays like the long run by Chase Edmonds in the fourth quarter that set up the final touchdown to Waddle to take the lead.

Miami’s offense is built to keep up this tempo and get defenses tired, and they did a great job of that on Sunday. It could be what helps them separate themselves this season.
