Fins defense awesome, but Raiders pull ahead

Posted by's Tim Graham

MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins' defense hasn't given up a touchdown, and yet the Oakland Raiders have taken a 15-14 lead in Dolphin Stadium.

The Raiders have kicked two field goals, sacked Chad Pennington for a safety and just ran back a punt 93 yards for a touchdown.

Rather than have the Raiders pinned with less than five minutes to play, Johnnie Lee Higgins ran it all the way back, outrunning punter Brandon Fields along the right sideline.

The touchdown could be devastating for the Dolphins, who seemed to be in control despite their inability to generate much offensively because their defense has been phenomenal all afternoon.
