Defensive scheme analysis = Miami Dolphinshttps://www.pff.com/news/nfl-defensive- ... s-2021#MIA
2020 Defensive Pass Efficiency Rank: 4
2020 Defensive Rush Efficiency Rank: 23
2020 Base Coverage: Cover 1
2020 Third-Down Mentality: Blitz and play Cover 1 or Cover 0
Coming from the Bill Belichick coaching tree, Miami head coach Brian Flores will surely try to live in man coverage as much as possible. On third down, the Dolphins were even more aggressive than New England, blitzing at the fifth-highest rate and using Cover 0 at the highest rate we’ve seen in at least the past five years.
Miami's defense doesn't stop coming after offenses and finished sixth in defensive efficiency when blitzing last year. Three Dolphins — Nik Needham, Elandon Roberts and Eric Rowe — ranked in the top 20 in pressure rate among non-defensive line players who saw at least 25 pass-rushing snaps last season.
