The Dolphins have now won five straight games for the first time since 2008, with Sunday’s win being the most remarkable: Miami won with a Game Script of -6.8, as the offense had a very slow start to the day:

In week 11, Miami was the only team to win with a noteworthy negative Game script: technically, the Raiders and Giants won with them, too. Below are the full results from week 11:

Cleveland passed on 79% of all plays in the loss to the Steelers. The Browns had just 13 runs, and that includes three quarterback runs, too: Duke Johnson and Isaiah Crowell combined for just 20 yards on 10 carries. The passing game wasn’t much better: Josh McCown and Cody Kessler had 49 pass plays, but gained just 176 yards on them.

As usual, the Bills stood out as super run-heavy. Buffalo ranks 1st in rushing and 32nd in passing — more on that tomorrow — and this week’s game was a good example of why. Buffalo was the only team in week 11 to run more than they passed: Tyrod Taylor had 29 pass plays, while the team had 34 carries — of course, 9 of those came from Taylor.
