Giants Vs. Dolphins Score Update: Giants Trail 7-3 In Second Quarter

Pretty much everyone was expecting the New York Giants to steamroll the 0-6 Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins seem determined not to be an easy win, and proved that by limiting a pair of long Giants drives and getting on the board first.

Miami was able to get a turnover on downs midway through the first quarter following a pair of incomplete passes by Eli Manning. The Dolphins got into the red zone, and the Giants immediately incurred a blatant pass interference penalty, followed by an unnecessary roughness at the goal line, and the Dolphins were able to get on the board first following a Steve Slaton run.

New York answered Miami's touchdown with a big kickoff return by Devin Thomas, and the Giants began another drive, only to be stopped again by the Dolphins defense and settling for a short Lawrence Tynes field goal.

Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore is five-for-five with 53 yards and three passing first downs, so maybe the Dolphins don't need Andrew Luck quite as much as the experts seem to think.
