Chiefs leading Dolphins 28-24 to start 3rd Q

Well, the good news is the Dolphins defense is alive and well. The team that averaged slightly less than 16 points per game the last three games has 24 points at the half.

Problem is the defense didn't show for the first half. The Chiefs have scored 28 points on the Miami defense -- yeah, the defense that did not allow a TD in 12 consecutive quarters. The Chiefs threw an interception on their offensive first possession.

And then they scored four touchdowns their next four possessions. Terrible effort. Terrible tackling. Terrible coverage.

Chad Pennington is 15 of 22 for 135 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Joe Montana, I mean Tyler Thigpen is 12 of 23 for 223 yards, two passing touchdowns and one running touchdown.

OK, join me for the second half continuation of the live blog in the comments section.

oh my god. a stop. first one of the day?

Well shut my mouth and call me grandma. A defensive play.

DON'T BRAKE THE TV JUST YET

F@*k me a christmas miracle, we stopped a KC drive

hey there has been a Matt Lienhart sighting. Talk about noodle arm.

Only 18:40 and another 100 points to the end.

Porter will make a useless 4th qtr sack when we are down 17 with 2 mins and we will celebrate like a fool.

there was the one interception in the 1st quarter, this was the first stop since then.

Wow Career Day for the opposing Q. B why is that like the 5 time ive heard that this year.

TENN SPANKING THE STEELERS

At least one of our D linemen is working

Another turnover. Get some pts off of this!!!

now we use polite

Just give it to Polite til they stop him. 4 yards and a cloud of ice dust.

N.Y. JETS 47
MIAMI 13

Bess is friggin brilliant!

AND THE game ball goes to the ......... ?????

So KC's two cornerbacks are rookies and Ginn or Wilford can't do something outstanding against them?

HAHAHA Ginn

i'm out and nice play Ginn

Cmon Teddy, stay focused

ginn can false start

Uh oh, here come the Ginn haters again.

Damnit Ginnj

Is he on crack. Wake Ted

You called it, Mando!! LOL

how does a receiver get a false start pentalty?! thats just so stupid.

Stunner. In a critical moment, a penalty. Discipline!!!
PS, KC has 476 yards of total offense. Wow!

Mtmman Your Ok.

When was the last time they allowed over 20 points and won? I think they will do it. The so called fans here are pathetic.

yeah ricky

Joel, shut the hell up.

Ginn, freakin' WR gets a false start about once every game. That is enough to get you pulled from a college game.

First down!!!!

pound the ball....

use the fullbacks..

hey brian can you say direct tv. i live in jersey. north bergen and im watching the game its called nfl sunday ticket

i also don't understand why ronnie has only 3 carries today. but hey, at least the offense is working. i'll take it. now its time for the d to step up.

I like how we try to establish the run when we have the wind at our backs and zero chance of moving the ball when we flip sides. Unreal.

its also pretty expensive, paul.

ok what do we due here to keep the drive going
we need a touchdown on this drive...

get Ronnie involved please

Mando, are we with or against win in 4th qtr?

this is just going to be a ricky,ronnie,cobbs show from here on out.

*wind

why did they not hurry up and take advantage of the wind? Another suspect decision. Coaching has been great all year but the 4th down throw and wasting the remaining 3rd quarter with the wind. KC can pack in the defense knowing Chad can't throw the ball past 20 yards which will also help against the run.

This is it. 4 qtr. WE NEED A TD on this drive. Put pressure on KC's offense again if we score & this time put Thigpen on the turf & lay some wood on Johnson & Gonzalez.

Time of possession about even. We need to hold the ball for 10 plus minutes. Please!!!

NE 50 points up against AC who are divisional leaders! Something ain't right there?

first played showed why they shouldn't waste clock

GINN FU@CKS UP AGAIN, IAM LAUGHING MY AS@ OFF AGAIN... P.S. MARC I HATE TO BE A PAIN, BUT.. WELL YOU KNOW.

GOOOOD DAMMMITT.

Ginn SUUUCCCKKSSSS

He cannot throw in this direction. So sad.

"You're going to love Ted Ginn and his family"

- Cam

punt ...oh no r defence is on the field

PLEASE MOVE YOUR COMMENTS TO THE FOURTH QUARTER POST THAT IS UP NOW!!

how come we can only score when they do? this is frustrating.

who is #7 for AZ? this guy stinks...

bess dropped a 1st down but you bash ginn

That play was not going anywhere...he had too many red shirts in front of him

Who cares about NE -- have you seen the weather. Az can't walk in the snow, much less play football. They also are a poor road team. They are a one and out playoff team. So NE kills them. So what. NE gets nothing, nothing, nothing if Miami simply wins. Or if NY wins.
