This Sunday, the Dolphins defense does not want to have Cleveland running back Peyton Hillis gather up steam and start rumbling down the field. Have you ever seen what a train does to a penny after it rolls over top of it on the track? It’s not a pretty penny.
Hillis tips the scales at 240 pounds, that’s a weight advantage of about 25 pounds over the biggest Dolphins defensive back. So, the key is to wrap Hillis up before he gets into the open field and starts looking to run people over.
Dolphins cornerback Benny Sapp said that is the key to stopping Peyton when he met with the media. The defense must keep him in containment and bring reinforcements. Benny also talked about Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme and how the team has gotten back to having fun on the field.
