Looking to get back on track the Dolphins played three good quarters against the Giants before taking their foot of the gas for an unbelievably easy 31-16 win.

The Dolphins scored on an 89-yard drive on their first possession and never looked back as they rebounded from last weeks disappointing road loss in Buffalo. Tua Tagolvailoa threw for 308-yards and 2 touchdowns, while rookie sensation De’Von Achane racked up 151 yards and a touchdown on just 11 carries.


The only real negative from the game was another 2 interceptions from Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa. Coach Mike McDaniel tried to put a positive slant on the issue after the game, saying, “Sometimes the messy games are my favorite with regard to that stuff. You turn the ball over, that’s hard. But the best way to separate yourself is to be able to come back from that and progress forward.”

Meanwhile the Giants horrible start to the season continued.

NY Giants HC Brian Daboll wasn’t happy after the game. “Look, you don’t want to lose. “You work extremely hard to put yourself in a good position, so after games, it’s certainly disappointing with all the effort you put into it. So 24-hour rule – you get back in, learn from the stuff, and then you have to move on.”
