  • Needham registered six tackles (five solo), three passes defensed and one interception in Sunday's win over the Colts. Needham posted an impressive line for a second straight week and was part of a stifling effort by the Dolphins' defense against Brian Hoyer and the Colts. The rookie was also on the field for all 70 of Miami's defensive snaps, proving that he has become an established member of the secondary since being signed to the active roster prior to Week 6.

  • Needham recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one sack during Sunday's 26-18 win over the Jets. Needham played at an explosive level during Miami's first win of the season, logging 93 percent of defensive snaps. He'd previously never played 70 percent of snaps on defense in a single game. Given his impressive performance, it's possible that the UTEP product could play another significant role on defense versus the Colts in Week 10.
