Morning Headlines

On Wednesday, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was asked about this week's opponent, the NY Jets: " Just regardless of the losses that they have, you look at the teams that they've beat and those are some really good teams – Cincinnati and the Titans. We look at those things that they do really well and we try to avoid those things happening in these games. We're going to try to do our best to play a mistake-free game."

Head Coach Brian Flores was asked about facing Jets quarterback Joe Flacco, who was announced as this week's starter. Flores said, "He's been a good player in this league for a long time. Smart. Experienced. He's going to try to get the ball to their go-to guys. It'll be a challenge for us."

Dolphins defensive end Raekwon Davis was asked about the Jets' running game: "They are good. They do a lot of gadgets. They do a whole bunch of schemes. They are all over the place, so you just got to play your keys."

The Dolphins are 14-6 in games after Halloween and 9-3 in the month of November since 2019, including a 7-1 mark in November over the past two seasons.

Quote of the Day

What do you think is unique about Jevon [Holland]?

Eric Rowe: "Jevon, he's playing really good ball right now and there's times that I forget that he's a rookie out there…from camp until now, he's progressed a lot. What makes him unique is his work ethic, his confidence….He obviously is making plays, sparking the defense up. He had that big hit on No. 13 that fired everybody up and from there on, everybody is ready to go. Just the confidence that he brings coming in each day, each practice, as a rookie."
