Dolphins will live and die with ‘Wildcat’

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The game that Dolphins players look to as the seminal moment of their season came in Week 3, when they were 0-2 but beat the Patriots 38-13 by running wild with the ‘Wildcat’ formation.

Their mindset must be “dance with the one who brung ya” because with 4:30 to play in the first half against the Jets, the Dolphins already have run six plays out of that formation, with two missed opportunities at big plays. Chad Pennington also just constructed a signature touchdown drive, going 5-of-6 passing for 60 yards, without a run play in the mix.
