MIAMI GARDENS, FL – OCTOBER 14: Travis Homer /

"We talk about leverage – if there’s a corner on their outside receiver and a safety deep, the linebacker is either in the box to stop the run or he’s out of the box to play the bubble. You have to kind of make the determination whether to throw it there or not. When you have bubbles on both sides, it’s hard to defend that, in my opinion. Malik [Rosier], I thought, did a good job of taking it to the field, taking it to the boundary and not get tired of taking it. Sometimes you throw it once or twice and you’re like, ‘Surely I can’t do it again.’ But you can, if they don’t stop it. Malik did a very good job of that.”"

The loss of Walton for the season after ankle surgery was devastating. Homer proved he is able to handle the load of being the starting running back.

"On the play of RB Travis Homer who was making the first start of his career… “Awesome. I don’t know how many carries it was, but he had 170 yards, I saw. We talked about his conditioning – he still played some special teams, he was still covering some kicks – but he has get vision and quickness. He secured the ball extremely well. I don’t think we had a fumble the whole day. Our line was playing a little bit mad."
