Bess comes up big against Patriots
Posted Dec. 28 at 02:46 AM
Miami is at New England this week, and that has us more interested than usual in Davone Bess. For whatever reason, Bess has played his best ball against this opponent – they seem to bring out the best in him.
Bess has gone for at least 87 yards in three of his last four games against the Patriots. In his 42 career games against all other opponents, he’s done it only once.
A few years back, the Dolphins traded Wes Welker to New England, and Welker has gone on to big things with that club. Given the ages and salaries, however, I don’t think that Miami would have any interest, if given the opportunity, in swapping those wide receivers. Bess might be just as good, and he’s definitely younger and cheaper, and he comes without having the knee surgery issue.
