10/26/16 - RB Jay Ajayi earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second consecutive week. Ajayi rushed for a career-best 214 yards on a career-high 28 carries in last week's 28-25 victory over Buffalo.
10/24/16 - RB Jay Ajayi has 54 carries in his last two games, amassing 418 yards in the process. Ajayi entered the season with 49 carries in his rookie season of 2015.
10/23/16 - RB Jay Ajayi penned an incredible chapter Sunday, becoming just the fourth player in NFL history to rush for more than 200 yards in consecutive games, leading Miami to a 28-25 upset win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon at Hard Rock Stadium.
Ajayi, who was left off the active roster for the season opener after he pouted when Miami signed Arian Foster to be the starting running back, ran 29 times for 214 yards (7.4 average) and one touchdown.
The previous week, he ran for 204 yards and two touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before that game, Ajayi, a former fifth-round pick from Boise State, had never even rushed for 100 yards in an NFL game. His previous high was 48 yards as a rookie.
And yet Ajayi, despite that thin resume, joined O.J. Simpson (1973 and 1976), Earl Campbell (1980) and Ricky Williams (2002) as the only NFL players to have consecutive 200-yard games.
"I've always had confidence in my ability," Ajayi said. "But back-to-back 200-yard games in the NFL is an amazing and crazy thing to do."
10/16/16 - RB Jay Ajayi had a strong 60 minutes, rushing for a career-high 204 yards as Miami upset the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-15 at Hard Rock Stadium.
Ajayi, who scored twice on 25 carries, became the first Dolphins 200-yard rusher since Reggie Bush did it on Dec. 18, 2011, at the Buffalo Bills.
"The offensive line kept opening creases," said Ajayi, who averaged 8.2 yards per rush. "I looked up, and I was at 140 (yards). I had some guys tell me, 'Let's go man! Go get two!'"
Two, of course, meant 200.
A 2015 fifth-round pick out of Boise State, Ajayi had expected to be Miami's starter this year after the Dolphins lost Lamar Miller in free agency.
When the job went to Arian Foster instead, Ajayi pouted, and Dolphins coach Adam Gase punished him, leaving him home when the team traveled to face the Seattle Seahawks.
But Ajayi worked his way back, with Gase saying, "We all have a bad five days."
Ajayi has since had the walk-off run that beat the Cleveland Browns in overtime, and he had his big performance against the Steelers.
10/10/16 - RB Jay Ajayi has 13 carries for 42 yards (3.2 yards per carry), including a nine-yard run against Tennessee in a fairly unimpressive performance. Ajayi, who got the start, had a nine-yard touchdown run negated by a holding call.
