    wk1 Dolphins-23 Bengals-17

    Rematch from week 16 of last year when the Bengals eliminated the Dolphins from playoff contention. This time around Miami turned it up a notch on defense. The unit that gave up the least amount of points last season had another strong outing giving up 17 points to a tough Cincy team. Cincy took the early 7-0 lead on a tipped ball that was picked off by the Dlineman Geathers and ran back for the easy TD. Miami was just about down two scores when Mack Jackson picked a ball off in the endzone on a 3rd and goal. Starting from the 5 yard line, Chad Henne and company drove the length of the field to tie this one up 7-7. Bengals added a FG before half and were up 10-7

    Second half was a struggle, but one that Miami had the edge in. Scoring a TD to go up 14-10 and the Dolphins never looked back although a late rally from the Bengals made this one come down to the wire. Cincy scored with a minute to go and went for the onside kick. Miami recovered the kick only to fumble after grabbing control of the ball. Luckily the booth stepped in and gave possesion of the ball back to Miami who then effectively ran the ball to take off clock time. GG to Drow and good luck. Miami holds on 23-17
