Gase really liked Drake pre-draft and lobbied for the Dolphins to draft him.

Dolphins running backs have averaged 1.3 yards before contact per carry (on 254 carries) this season, which is worst in NFL. The league average is 2.1.

But Dolphins backs have averaged 2.6 yards after contact per carry this season — second best in the NFL and above the league average of 1.9.

Bottom line: The Dolphins’ run blocking has been subpar all season. But Kenyan Drake - and Jay Ajayi before him - have been better than average in making something out of nothing (though Drake has done it much better than Ajayi this season).

Oh good... I thought it was the pass blocking that was bad.

So it's not the lines fault for the poor passing at least.

Actually, the run blocking did better yesterday (especially in the first half). And let's give the OL an attaboy as they did a decent job of pass blocking as well.

Dolphins/Bills PFF grades:

OT Sam Young, 85.3 overall grade
OT Laremy Tunsil, 81.9 overall grade

Keep up with the inconsistent Fins.

So he got 69 of 76 yards after contact.. And that was good run blocking?

Not that I believe that for a second..Saw quite a few runs he didn't get touched until the secondary tackled him.
