Miami came into Lincoln Financial Field having lost all ten games. The Eagles were a disappointment similar to this year with a 4-5 reading. Miami threw a scare into the fans. Ted Ginn in the second quarter returned a punt 87 yards for a touchdown and a 7 to 0 lead. A. J. Feely was horrible early on throwing three interceptions. Somehow the defense held on. David Ackers capped a short drive with a field goal, cutting the deficit to 7 to 3 at halftime.
The second half was a different story. Feely went for the day 13 for 19 for 116 and an eight yard touchdown pass to Jason Avant. Correll Buckwalter ran eight yards for another score. The big star as usual was Brian Westbrook who carried 32 times for 148 yards; 36 yards was his longest run of of the day.
The Eagles got 352 yards. The Dolphins got only eight first downs and 186 yards.
This was not a great game but it was a win. I will gladly settle for a rerun on Sunday. Philadelphia 17 Miami 7.
