Dolphins D steps up late in 14-10 win over the Vikings

Jason Allen had two of Miami’s three interceptions of Brett Favre and the Dolphin defense stopped a pair of late Minnesota threats in a 14-10 victory over the Vikings at Mall of America Field. Chad Henne threw a touchdown pass for the Dolphins (2-0) and rookie linebacker Koa Misi recovered a Favre fumble in the end zone for another score, as Miami opened a season with two wins for the first time since 2002.

In addition to the three interceptions, Favre completed 22-of-36 passes for 225 yards without a touchdown. Adrian Peterson ran for 145 yards and a score, but was stopped short of the goal line on one of Minnesota’s fourth-quarter threats as the Vikings (0-2) followed up a nine-point effort in their opening loss against New Orleans with another subpar offensive showing. Favre took over at his own 45 and drove the offense to the Miami 28 before facing 4th-and-7, then threw behind tight end Visanthe Shiancoe to turn it over on downs with 33 seconds to play.

    Miami’s defense played nothing short of phenomenal yesterday. I am a little worried about Chad Henne and the offense though. They’re making some stupid mistakes and seem out of sync in general. The fact that Revis will probably be out next week when they play the Jets is good news for Miami’s mediocre offense.
