Here some things Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke said Thursday:
• We need to be better on second down defense.
• We had timely interceptions.
• Minkah Fitzpatrick was solid. Made a few plays. Left a few plays on table.
• Akeem Spence has got a big personality. Always smiling.
• There wasn’t a flag on those questioned hits by William Hayes and Andre Branch on Marcus Mariota and Taylor Lewan.
• Minkah Fitzpatrick won’t be affected in any way by playing at home in front of family and friends.
• Sam Darnold showed a lot of poise on Monday night.
• In the last game we intentionally got Minkah Fitzpatrick some snaps at safety with Bobby McCain at slot corner. We wanted to get Torry McTyer a few snaps at outside corner.
• Reshad Jones stood out. So did Bobby McCain and Kiko Alonso.
