Jets at Dolphins: Miami Takes 10-3 Lead to the Half

The Miami Dolphins have dominated the first half of the AFC East Divisional rivalry game against the New York Jets. The Dolphins have a 10-3 lead at the half.

The Dolphins have 94 rushing yards already in the game, with Reggie Bush leading the way with 10 carries for 61 yards. Daniel Thomas has carried the ball seven times for 30 yards, with fullback Jorvorskie Lane adding three yards on one carry.

The story of the game, however, may be the Miami defense, which has held the Jets to 3.4 yards per play in the first half. The Jets, a self-described "ground-and-pound" team have only been able to gain 43 yards on 13 carries, or a 3.3 yards per carry average.

The Dolphins also came away with the only takeaway of the half, with Richard Marshall intercepting Mark Sanchez.

The second half should continue to be a hard-fought battle between the two rivals. Hopefully the Dolphins offense will continue to click, and the defense will be able to continue to dominate.

And, hopefully, Bush, who was injured on the second to last play of the half, will be able to return.
