ABOVE VIDEO: Miami Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores meets with the media after the team’s Week 8 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

In a 7-7 tie early in the second quarter, the Rams took possession of the football at the Dolphins 7-yard-line. Then, a wave of big plays and unrelenting pressure propelled Miami to 21 unanswered points and a third consecutive win.

The cavalcade of scoring began when defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah came clean, getting to Jared Goff as the quarterback reached back to throw, and picked up his sixth sack of the season. The ball popped free simultaneously as linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel arrived to scoop it up and take it back 78 yards for a Dolphins touchdown.

“The key to the game was just to attack Jared Goff,” Ogbah said. “As a team, we did a good job rushing him and coverage goes hand in hand with the rush, and all those guys did a great job back there, too.”

That play showed the trait the Head Coach Brian Flores is most proud of – his team’s mental toughness.

“I think our guys showed a lot of mental toughness today,” Flores said. “We got off to a slow start and when I talk about the mental toughness, that’s part of it. We just kept playing hard. It was great to see this team’s mental toughness.”
