New York Giants (4-2) Vs. Miami Dolphins (0-6): Scouting The Dolphins

Do the New York Giants have anything to fear from the 0-6 Miami Dolphins when they meet Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.? Well, head coach Tom Coughlin of the Giants said earlier this week that "very small margins" separate winning from losing in the NFL.

Still, these Dolphins have been a bad football team. Bad enough that the Miami fan base at SB Nation's Dolphins website, The Phinsider, seems to spend most of its time pondering the 2012 NFL Draft and who the next coach will be. After all, current coach Tony Sparano seems to know he is out the door as he already has his house up for sale.

Miami, though, nearly won twice this season. They lost to Cleveland, 17-16, and to Denver last Sunday in overtime, 18-15.

The Dolphins best players are wide receiver Brandon Marshall (34 catches) and defensive end Cameron Wake (five sacks). Miami will be quarterbacked by Matt Moore with Chad Henne out for the season. The Giants are familiar with Moore from his days with the Carolina Panthers.
