Giants at Dolphins Week 14 tale of the tape

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Giants in a Week 14 Monday Night Football contest. We take a look at the tale of the tape between the two sides before kickoff.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The end of the NFL's Week 14 schedule features a pair of 5-7 teams facing off, with the New York Giants heading to South Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins. The Giants are trying to stay atop the NFC East, where a losing record may win the division, while the Dolphins, two games under .500, are still somehow in the AFC Wildcard chase and could help their chances for the postseason with a win.

To get a closer look at both teams, we go to the tale of the tape.
