Goal line stand keeps Miami up 17-10 in 4th Q

The Dolphins have just come with an excellent goal line stand on fourth-and-goal from the 1 yard line to start the fourth quarter.

LaDainian Tomlinson was stopped short after the Chargers threatened to tie the game.

The third quarter pretty much belonged to the Chargers as they scored the period's only touchdown on a 17-yard pass from Phillip Rivers to former Dolphins receiver Chris Chambers.

That TD cut Miami's lead from 17-3 at the half to 17-10.

The Chargers then kicked off and Davone Bess fumbled the kickoff, putting San Diego in position for yet another score. But the Dolphins defense answered the challenge, stopping Tomlinson at the 1 yard line.

what a stop

amando what do you think?

we need to get the ball out fast. screen play

anyone here?

Gotta move the ball out of there to ... wow, dolphins just got away with grounding.

wow. flag on the play

we needed that

Ball over the receiver's head. Not catchable?

Pass interference called. Good call.

we will take that

Wow...That flag was a life saver

that was the break we needed

not catchable because he got held

this is so much fun

It is amazing to me how Miami receivers (all of them) are running so free in the secondary. SD secondary really sucks.

back on track. all we need is 3 points

Pennington has had EXCELLENT protection, AGAIN...It seems like everything's in slow motion

Fasano!!

they are pretty bad. with a secondary like that they are not a contender

This is where the Dolphins have to win with their base offense. Wildcat works for a while, but they need to move with base offense.

Mando are you allowed to just diss on the other team like that being a journalist?

Back to R&R...

havent seen the wild cat lately

I cant believe Ronnie is playing this well after tearing up his knee a year ago

I agree Armando

we have to go for it

Wildcat gains one yard on third and two.

4th and one. cmon

i dont like us punting here. that might come back to bite us.

Somebody on the defense needs to earn their paycheck on this game is over...

with 2 R and R we should be able to pick up 1 yard

why punt we had nothing to loose? play to win.

I bet Jay Feely was celebrating after that missed FG...

cant believe we punted. gained 18 yards. shoulda just taken the risk and gone for it.

I hate when its 4th and 1 from the 40 and you decide to punt

Chris Chambers is out of the game, by the way.

its on the d now. 1 and 10 at the 20 for sandiago

here we go

Im calling it now.....Bell will come up with a pick

Goodman is struggling today.

you cannot tell me that we could not line up in the eye and pick up 1 yard.

pass to 34yd line. 14 yd gain

Enough of the wildcat already unless you pass out of it!

ROTH!

sack by roth wow

Best game of Roths career

Matt Roth ran through LT like wasn't even there. Sack is for 9 yard loss.

Roth has been great as a linebacker, amazing.

roth surprises me

FLAG! He was in the pocket, no?

This year has been Roth's coming out party

isnt that intentional grounding?

3 and 19

about time we get pressure on them. havent done much today behind the line of scrimmage. GO PHINS!!!!!!!

GOOD D!

Jackson was open but overthrown. Crocker was beat.

wow. he was wide open. that was td

we dodged one there.

Get Ginn out there on returns damnit!

Has anyone seen Jason Allen today?
