The Dolphins have been determined to run the football on the road this season. They’ve rushed for over 530 yards away from home, while compiling just 240 at Sun Life Stadium. The success on the ground has helped them compile a 4-0 mark in opposing stadiums.
Last week, the Ravens defense allowed the winless Bills to score 34 points. Buffalo found success running a spread offense and Baltimore had issues tackling receivers after the catch.
The Dolphins will hope to continue the balance on offense between the run and pass when they meet Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline hopes to contribute any way he can. In his second season, Hartline has caught 25 passes for 287 yards with one touchdown. He has also added two rushes for 27 yards.
Brian met with the media to talk about the Ravens defense and in particular, safety Ed Reed. The former Miami Hurricane reeled in two interceptions in his season debut last week for the ninth time in his career. Brian also talks about the unconventional way the Ravens play on defense, and how he and Brandon Marshall have a friendly competition when it comes to running the football.
