Dolphins Keeping Opposing Wide Receivers Out Of The End Zone

The Miami Dolphins have been solid in the secondary this season after the addition of Brent Grimes to their secondary. Through the first 10 games of the NFL season, the Dolphins have only allowed one touchdown by an opposing wide receiver. ONE. That touchdown was thrown from New England Patriots QB Tom Brady to WR Aaron Dobson.

Through the first 10 games of the year, the Dolphins have faced off against some solid talent at the wide receiver position and have shut them out of the end zone. They have faced off against players like Julio Jones, Roddy White, Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Marques Colston, Torrey Smith, A.J. Green and Vincent Jackson. Nothing in the end zone from those receivers.

A huge reason for the Dolphins success in that area is the addition of Brent Grimes at the corner position. He has done a tremendous job of locking down his receiver this season. Grimes was brought in during the offseason as a free agent and signed to a one-year deal. He should get plenty of interest this coming offseason again. The Dolphins will need to find a way to keep him around for a little longer.
