Some strange things happened with Burke’s defense. It jumped from 29th in total defense to 16th. It gave up 30 fewer rushing yards per game after getting gashed by runners last year. It allowed 17 fewer passing yards per game.

Only problem: points. The Dolphins went from 18th as a scoring defense to 29th. You’d have to try for all these elements to be true, right? Not if your team goes from a plus-two in giveaway-takeaway differential to a minus-14.

The defense recovered just six fumbles. It made just nine interceptions, compared to 21 picks thrown by Miami. That lack of interceptions by the defense — seven fewer than last year — was the greatest factor in opponents’ passer rating skyrocketing in 2017.

Add that up and you have a defense put in bad situations by the offense, and one that was clueless on how to get out of those bad situations.

Lack of a true FS and handcuffing Jones with coverage calls.
