The Miami Dolphins recently surprised the internet as the clip of their practice at the University of Cincinnati started circulating. The video shows the team using 12 offensive players, which triggered a horde of speculation.
Some suggested that it was a breach in security, while others guessed their plan for the upcoming game was exposed. However, it has not been established that the Dolphins took a counterintelligence measure to fool onlookers.
As per the latest sports news, Tom Pelissero, an NFL Network Insider, reported that the team noticed people observing them throughout the walkthrough. Thus, the head coach Mike McDaniel decided to make a unique 12-man offense strategy.
As pointed out by Pelissero on Twitter, having an extra offensive player makes it tough to figure out who is fake. While the NFL has confirmed no competitive violations have occurred, the move was smart nonetheless.
Because of Hurricane Ian, the team had to make some quick changes for the game. However, their preparations seem complete, and the team appears to be in good shape.
Coming from a 3-1 game record, Miami Dolphins are a hot favorite in the NFL betting circle.
The team is riding high after beating the Baltimore Ravens. Buffalo Bills, and New England Patriots, ruling the first place in the competition.
The fact that the staff members could think on their feet and stop strategies from leaking was quite intuitive. Thus, most NFL bettors believe in the team’s strong performance, which is expected to be repeated against the Bengals.
