If you believe in omens, the Dolphins left Dallas that day with an impressive 40-21 victory.

"They're cool uniforms,"?Tannehill said. "I did a photo shoot in them, I guess, in the summer.Matthew Stafford Jersey I got to see them and put them on and I was excited, they look pretty sweet."
"Sweet"?might not have been a strong enough word for linebacker Spencer Paysinger.
"I?love them,Peyton Manning Jersey"?he said. "They're not getting mine back once the game is over. That's going in my backpack. I'm taking it home."
The Dolphins have a lot of respect for Pierre-Paul,Marcus Mariota Jersey not only for his ability as a pass rusher but also for his perseverance.
"Credit to him to be able to still play and do his thing,"?defensive end Olivier Vernon said. "I?know it's an adjustment.DeForest Buckner Jersey He's still got to get through it, but I?feel like he's going to be all right."
Pierre-Paul doesn't have a sack in four games since returning to the lineup, but he has become more of a factor with each passing week.
Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell says the Dolphins will be well aware of where Pierre-Paul is at all times.Luke Kuechly Jersey
"If you watch his games since he's been back, last week you could tell he's really comfortable now,"?Campbell said. "It didn't look like he wanted to use his hand as much, particularly early,Jay Cutler Jersey or the club now; last week against the Jets, he turned it on. He looks like he knows how to use it. He's got a feel of what he can do or can't do it with it and he's playing at a high, high level. He's a guy we identified for them defensively that we have to try to eliminate. We can't let him get going because he can disrupt a game.
