Dolphins-Raiders halftime notes
By James Walker
MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins lead the Oakland Raiders 13-0 at intermission.
Here are some notes at halftime:
- Miami's defense continues to play well. The Dolphins forced two consecutive three-and-outs that led to great field position and two early field goals by Miami. The Raiders tried to establish their physicality but couldn't. The Raiders only have 21 yards rushing and 107 total yards of offense.
- Either Oakland has no pass rush or Miami's pass protection has been stellar. Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore has plenty of time in the pocket. Moore wasn't sacked in the first half. As a result, he's thrown for 92 yards and a touchdown.
- Dolphins tailback Reggie Bush is having another great first half. Miami offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is digging into his bag of tricks to get Bush the ball on the outside and it’s working. Bush has 73 rushing yards on nine carries. His big gains have come on the perimeter.
