Ravens-Dolphins halftime notes
By James Walker
MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins (3-1) lead the Baltimore Ravens (2-2), 13-6, at intermission.
Here are some notes during halftime:
- Miami looked like a team that didn’t practice much in the first quarter. The Dolphins were sloppy and couldn’t get much going until late in the first half. Because of the short week, the Dolphins’ only “real” practice was on Wednesday. Thursday was a day off, and Friday was a light walk-through.
- Miami is getting receiver Mike Wallace involved in the first half. Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is making a concerted effort to get his No. 1 receiver the ball, and Wallace has six receptions for 99 yards. Wallace had a big reception of 49 yards in the second quarter that led to a field goal.
- Tannehill is having a good bounce-back game so far. Tannehill has thrown for 178 yards and a touchdown in the first half. He had an interception overturned on a replay. Tannehill had four turnovers in a loss last week against the New Orleans Saints.
- Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe injured his shoulder in the first half and his return is questionable.
This should be a close and physical second half from Miami. Keep checking ESPN.com's Dolphins page for more updates throughout the afternoon.
