According to a quote from, Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano gave credit to Ngata after the week 9 match up.

“You got to know where he is all the time and that’s a little bit of a problem because at times he lines up in a couple of different spots. I think that he’s playing outstanding as far as I’m concerned.”
