The Dolphins hit the Saints in the mouth. They had a 68 yard touchdown run from Ricky Williams.They had two more Williams touchdowns after that.
The Dolphins were leading 24-3 in the second quarter.
And then reality hit.
The Saints got an interception return for a touchdown. Then Drew Brees woke up.
Then Brees realized the Dolphins cannot cover tight ends and started feeding Jeremy Shockey, who went for over 100 receiving yards.
And then there was another 54-yard interception return for a touchdown.
And that was the recipe for an upset-gone-bad.
The Dolphins held a 34-24 lead going into the fourth quarter. And the Saints whizzed by them like a Corvette passing a Pinto.
Final: Saints 46, Dolphins 34.
