Jay Ajayi (1.4 OTD) ranks fifth in the NFL with 138 carries but has yet to score a touchdown this season. Ajayi was traded to the Eagles on Tuesday, but his scoring struggles point to the overall ineffectiveness of the Miami offense. The Dolphins are the only team yet to run the ball at least once inside the opponent’s 5-yard line (each of the 31 other teams have at least two).
Klemko sent me the menu and I looked it over and said, sure, I’ll go. Uncle’s is a pretty hot spot. We waited about 30 minutes for a table—actually three chairs at a long table, because every chair in the packed place gets used throughout the night.
I told Klemko the spicy chicken ramen looked good … but I could do without the soft boiled egg part of it. “That’s the best part!” he said. I went egg-less. The food was really good, particularly the shrimp bun and the ramen, with its noodles and sprouts and tender mouth-burning chicken.
It is also a new way to unlock Griffin’s expert playmaking — another small method of regaining some of what went out the door with Paul. Once defenders respect Griffin from deep, they’ll have to run out on him harder — leaving them vulnerable to Griffin’s pump-and-drive game:
If he shoots like this, the Clippers may not need him to.
In addition, Sellers is the only player since 1992, the earliest year for which we have target data, who had fewer targets (16) in a season with at least seven receiving scores. Fuller’s big-play ability is a huge boon to the aggressive Watson, and while Fuller’s touchdown success is sure to regress to the mean in coming weeks, Watson maximizes Fuller’s weekly upside and the team has a pretty favorable remaining schedule, beginning with an excellent matchup with the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.
