Morning Headlines

The Miami Dolphins this season have 19 takeaways (10 interceptions and 9 fumble recoveries) which is tied for six in the NFL.

The Dolphins are now 10-3 in the month of November since Brian Flores became head coach in 2019, including an 8-1 mark in November over the past two seasons.

This upcoming Sunday, Miami takes on the New York Giants. The Dolphins have never defeated the Giants at Hard Rock Stadium, dropping all three meetings at the venue. The last Dolphins win in the series came on Oct. 5, 2003, at Giants Stadium. Miami is 2-7 all-time against the Giants.

Miami Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores worked with New York Giants Head Coach Joe Judge side by side in New England. Joe Judge spoke about his relationship with Brian Flores and how, except for weeks like this week, when he is facing Miami he is rooting for the Dolphins. Judge said, "I think some of the tightest relationships you have in this business are the relationships you have when you're broke, grinding with somebody. Brian came into this league the same as I did in kind of a bottom of the totem pole type of position. We were given the opportunity to work and had the opportunity to work our way up. He certainly did that and I had the opportunity as well to do that. I think it's when you're kind of grinding through those long hours and stressful times and going through some adversity together is when you really form strong bonds with people. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Flo, I really, really do. He's very, very intelligent, he's got great command, he's a great leader, his players play the right way, they respond the right way, he pushes through adversity."

Quote of the Day

In what area of his game is Jaylen Waddle beyond his years?

Josh Grizzard: "It's more of the intangible side of it, on being able to take on bigger roles or the competitive nature or just being able to listen to coaching or it could be coaching from other the players, where he's open to criticism. He doesn't take it personally. And that allows him to go, ok if I screwed this up, I can improve on it and try to correct that the next week."
