Brees' mistakes give Dolphins big lead
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
MIAMI -- Drew Brees looks very un-MVP-like.
The Miami Dolphins are giving Brees fits here at Land Shark Stadium. The New Orleans Saints quarterback has thrown two interceptions, one that sailed long to Dolphins safety Tyrone Culver and nearly returned for a touchdown, and another that was tipped at the line by blitzing safety Gibril Wilson and caught by linebacker Reggie Torbor.
The Dolphins turned both interceptions into touchdowns and lead 24-3 with 8:55 to go in the first half. Brees has 22 yards passing.
Ricky Williams, who scored on back-to-back carries, punched it in one play after Culver's interception to put the Saints behind on the scoreboard for the first time this year. Williams also scored on a career-long 68-yard dash one Dolphins snap later.
