Miami Eeks Out Win, Set Sights On Raiders!!!

Jason CoxContributor INovember 9, 2008

The Miami Dolphins entered their game this week trailing in the very competitive AFC East by one game. In town, the visiting Seattle Seahawks had their own ideas of trying to salvage their respective season.

Miami opened the game hot, reeling off a big pass from Chad Pennington to Ted Gin Jr. and another long touchdown from the undaunted "Wild Cat" formation. The pass was also a bit of a gadget play in the form of a flea flicker.

Soon after, however, Seattle settled in and began climbing out the 14 to nothing hole they had dug themselves into. The Seahawks blanked the Dolphins offense until the fourth quarter, when Ronnie Brown was able to find pay dirt courtesy of two key blocks on the left side from Patrick Cobbs and Jake Long.

The Seahawks did answer with their own drive and touchdown, but, were turned away from a tying two point conversion by the resurgant Miami defense. This same defense again answered the call later on in the fourth as Miami was able to cling to thier 21 to 19 win.

Next up, Miami will host a very desperate Oakland Raider team. A team that should serve as a very humbling reminder of how far this squad has come since last season.

Look for Sparano to keep his team from becoming too arrogant this upcoming week as Miami could reel off another big win.
