What Went Right

There is plenty of talk going around about what went wrong in the Miami Dolphins’ loss to the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium, but there isn’t enough talk about what went right. After all, the Giants, who are arguably one of the top five teams in the NFL and are current division leaders, needed a dramatic fourth quarter comeback to send the Dolphins back to Miami with a loss. The Dolphins will be seeking to avenge that loss to the Giants on the road with another game this weekend away from home at the Kansas City Chiefs. But if last season taught us anything, it’s that away from the friendly confines of Sun Life Stadium anything can happen, as the team played much better in front of a hostile environment than they did on their home turf in 2010. Will the Fins follow suit this year and continue to play better football on the road? You too can follow the Fins every step of the way in whatever venue they’re playing in with the best tickets available here at!

As we mentioned earlier, it’s important not to overlook the good parts of the game Sunday, so here are some of the highlights that might have been overshadowed by the loss.

• Miami’s offense hadn’t found the end zone very much recently, but the team scored on their first two drives Sunday, the first time they have scored on consecutive possessions all season. While they went the rest of the way without scoring another TD, QB Matt Moore did look more comfortable on those two possessions than he has at any other time since he took over the position from Chad Henne, which is an encouraging sign.

• Also not to be overlooked is the play of Reggie Bush. He has his best game as a Miami Dolphin by far, carrying the ball 15 times for 103 yards, an average of 6.9 yards per touch. Bush alone nearly doubled the Giants’ running attack, as New York had only 58 total yards on the ground.

• Just one week after playing a good game (until the last three minutes of regulation), Miami’s defense once again showed a valiant effort through most of the game. The defense and the Fins’ offensive line crumbled in the fourth quarter, but up until then had played a pretty solid game, which shouldn’t be overlooked.
