Dolphins game preview: Week 4 vs. Saints in London

He has weapons with Jay Ajayi, DeVante Parker, Jarvis Landry and so on, but he clearly hasn't put it together in his new home - if he ever will. Making a statement in London would be a good way to gain trust of the Dolphins faithful. After allowing more than 1,000 yards through the first two weeks of the season, they rallied to shut down Cam Newton and the Panthers under 200 for the game. He was 22 of 44 for 220 yards, one touchdown and one pick. Your options includes Fubo, Verizon NFL Mobile, NFL Game Pass and NFL Sunday Ticket MAX.

The three Dolphins players who knelt had also been part of the protest movement past year.

The Dolphins have played well on defense but their secondary is giving up completions at an alarming rate and must tighten throwing windows against Drew Brees who has yet to throw an interception this year. Brees completed 30 of 39 passes for 413 yards and four touchdowns.

Head coach Adam Gase said most of his players managed to get some sleep on the flight over, and should be fine for the game as long as they eat right and stay hydrated during the weekend. That was more than the 141 the team had gained on the ground in the first games against the Vikings and Patriots combined. The Saints were true to the pre-match declaration of quarterback Drew Brees, who said the Saints would kneel before and stand during the anthem. It also was the most rushing yards for New Orleans since racking up 209 against the Rams in Week 12 of last season.

The Dolphins limp into London with their pride bruised. "Regarding the issues of social injustice, I stand ready to offer our organizations, our players and our community meaningful support and resources to move from protest to solution", Benson said. Facing a third consecutive game away from home is certainly taxing. "I don't know whether I played when I was here".
