The Dolphins have annually been one of the NFL's stingiest teams against the run, but this season there's been plenty of leakage. Miami's defense front has allowed five of the first eight opponents to rush for more than 100 yards. Worse, they have given up nine rushing touchdowns. Eight of the nine have occurred during losses. Considering the Dolphins defensive front features three former Pro Bowlers and two first-round picks they need to figure out how to tighten the screws. Miami might need to look at using more of a 3-4 front, which allows them to put Jared Odrick (98), Paul Soliai (96)and Randy Starks on the field together.
