What They're Saying: Miami Dolphins

Find out what Miami Dolphins Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell and select players are saying about their upcoming game against the Patriots.


On how the Patriots offense has changed due to injuries...
"Just overall not having those guys, they're not quite as explosive as they've been. (Danny) Amendola and (Julian) Edelman, they bring obviously a lot of quickness on the perimeter and they can hurt you in matchups. Not having those guys takes that away a little bit, but you've still got a Hall of Fame quarterback, you've got probably the best tight end in the league and they'll still find a way to try to run the ball. As long as you can do those things and you have those weapons, you're always going to have a chance."
- Dolphins Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell

On playing the Patriots...
"Yeah, we want to go out and play well and win. You know, I think that we want to finish this season on a strong note. It's been a bad year; a lot of adversity. To go out and to find a way to win the last game of the year, finish on a high note and head into the offseason with as good a feeling as you could get at this point would be great."
- Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill

"As a team and as an organization, we want to go out there and continue to play hard, continue to play for these colors that we wear and go out there and compete for a victory. We aren't laying down for anybody or whatever they have at stake. We won't lie down. At the same time, we know it's going to be a good game, a hard-fought game, and we are excited about it."
- Dolphins Running Back Jarvis Landry

On how the defense has changed since last time they played...
"The biggest one is that (Jabaal) Sheard is back and he's a heck of a player. They already have a good scheme, the things that they do they've done for a long time, they make excellent adjustments during the game, they'll have a plan for us and they do a lot of things that are matchup based, which is very smart. They've got good players, they've got a lot of good players and they've got consistent players. Look we've got our hands full and we understand the issues that they're going to bring to us."
- Dolphins Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell

On the opportunity to play spoiler to New England...
"The message is 'It's one week. It's one week, it's one game. Let's give it everything we've got one more time and let's go fight one more time.' I want to go out and I want to be competitive and I want to find a way to win this game. That's what we play the game for."
- Dolphins Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell

"I guess so. As much as that goes to be said about that, this team just needs a W. Our team just needs a win. As much or as less as a spoiler role, us getting a W to end the season would be a bit of a high for us this year."
- Dolphins Running Back Jarvis Landry


On Malcolm Butler...
"He's making plays. Coming into this season, a lot of hype was built around the play that he made in the Super Bowl, but to see him play and having to play against him, there's a lot more to him than that play. He deserves a lot more respect for his style of play than he gets just outside of that play. I think this year he has done a great job of managing guys, holding guys to low numbers. He doesn't really have a high completion percentage against him and I think that speaks volumes about him being a caliber corner in this league that should be respected."
- Dolphins Running Back Jarvis Landry

On Chandler Jones...
"He's a great player. He's tough to get around. That will be one of my toughest challenges."
- Dolphins Tackle Branden Albert
