"It was real tough to watch, but you've got to give that kid credit," Ryan said Tuesday, via the Buffalo News. "I mean, he took it to us. (Their) whole team did."
"One game is too many when you're giving up 200 rushing yards," defensive lineman Leger Douzable said. "But we know what we have to do. In both of those games, it was the same determining factor -- it was missed tackles. Versus Ajayi, we had three or four guys missing tackles on one play. And you can't do that, because the next thing you know he's in the secondary and he's off to the races."
"Well, we think that we'll be much more effective this game," Ryan said. "Let's just put it that way. Hey, I know what happened. ... They're going to get our best effort. There's no doubt about that, and our preparation started (Tuesday). We feel good about our plan, and we know it's going to be a very physical game. We'll see if we're up for it."
Ajayi has since cooled off, earning fewer than 80 rushing yards in six straight games. Part of the running back's struggles is an injured offensive line. Another reason is defenses are loading up to stop the Dolphins' rushing attack.
