Myles Gaskin led Miami with nine carries for 40 yards, trying to provide a spark for an offense that relied heavily on Fitzpatrick passing the football. When Miami used two-back sets, it was Gaskin and fellow second-year back Patrick Laird in the package instead of Matt Breida.

Howard had a TD but only managed seven yards on eight carries. Perhaps the biggest thing to take away was Breida surprisingly had a lesser workload than expected, with just five carries for 22 yards on the day. The Dolphins were unable to get Brieda, one of the NFL’s fastest players, involved in the offense, the story said.
