Dolphins clinging to 14-13 lead at start of 3rd Q

The Dolphins were pretty much in control for the first half -- causing two turnovers on defense, getting big-play TDs of 80 yards and 53 yards -- and then the Texans got a special teams touchdown.

And that is why this game which Miami dominated is 14-13 as the teams prepare to come out for the start of the third quarter.

The Dolphins have gotten TDs from Patrick Cobbs on a 53 pass from Chad Pennington out of the Wildcat package and an 80-yard screen pass out of the base formation.

The Texans managed two Kris Brown field goals to trail 14-6, but then Jacoby Jones returned a punt 70 yards to give Houston life.

It should be an interesting second half. Join me in the comments section below for the continuation of the live blog

now lets score on this drive!!

we need a looong time wasting drive now, wear this texan defense down!!!! wildcat time, hb pass! texans expect us to get conservative now!

he's no camarillo baby!!!

sometimes its better to be lucky than good! nice play by Will Allen!

@ azfin try: http://www.justin.tv/thedarkside_tv

Cannot give it back.

Travis Johnson is offsides.

i agree sonny we still need to play agressive no pre-med crap run it down their throats

we need a long drive that ends in a touchdown

The texans are commiting 100 percent to the run... I dont know why we are only throwin downfield when were down... too conservative

our defense needs a break...we need a long time eating drive

play action hit Ginn deep!

@ chase...good question, I have been wondering why our WR and TE are not getting more action...Can't see the coverage so that may be it, but it looks like Texans are stacking 8 in the box..we should be able to throw more

GINN CANT CATCH, POUND THE BALL.

Damn it! 3rd down

quick slant to david martin, theyre stacking the box

THE LIVE BLOG CONTINUES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION OF THE FOURTH QUARTER POST.

bad play call...

Offense has gone to crap

coverage sack.

AGAIN THESE ARE THE DOLPHINS I KNOW AND LOVE

roughing the punter.

give it right bak...FLAG THOUGH!!!

3 PLAYS -2 YARDS

can we please convert a 3rd down

Armando, can you tell us if the WR's and TE are getting open?

Another bull crap call. That was 15 yards. Again, how is this guy still working for the NFL?

I guess I prefer this to be blown out like almost every game last year...come on D, make some plays!!! We could really use a sack!!!

THE LIVE BLOG HAS MOVED TO THE COMMENTS SECTION AT THE NEW POST.

I dunno if its cause the chargers were supposed to be hands down better then us that we played like we had nothing to lose. But this week against an average D at best, were playing the opposite of "fearless"

why cant we get a 3rd down. frustrating. cant stop them or convert them

we're asking our defense wich is gassed, to win this game, we're playing for field position with 3 And outs, i don't like the smell of this one. we need to force the issue downfield with camarillo and fasano, our defense can't get a turnover every drive 4 u

where was the grounding flag?

FINALLY

What is Mando talking about?

can we please score. we always let them hang around then they beat us. now is proving time

Thanks Haywood! the only game on TV in curacao is the stupid jets.

Bad clock management

the discipline is just not there. and we arent controlling the line of scrimmage. we've got to hold on here

1 and 2 yards on first down is killing us too.

The Tom Cable era is starting of well for the Raiders. I hope Al Davis loses the rest of his games based on how he treated Kiffin.

Maybe then Nmdadi Asmohgua will then come to So. Fla.

THE LIVE BLOG HAS MOVED TO THE POST ABOUT THE FOURTH QUARTER.

yeah every game we have played against the texans we have lost by three points or less. lets not have a repeat this game. lets put this thing away NOW!

huge 1st down, remeber that play

HOW DOES HOCHULI COME IN AND CHANGE THAT? THE PLAY WAS TURNED AWAY FROM HIM?

BAD CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awful ref....AWFUL.

No we punt it oh no.
