The Drive - Written by Matthew Cannata | Twitter: @PhinManiacs
It's halftime and the Miami Dolphins are leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 10-7. Until the end, it was pretty much an uneventful first half, with each defense making stops and/or turnovers when it counted. The Dolphins did catch a break when Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans fumbled at the one-yard line after Brent Grimes knocked it out, resulting in a touchback and Dolphins ball.
Among other things we saw was the Samson Satele injury not being serious as he returned to the game shortly after, Brandon Gibson making clutch plays, and the Dolphins offense moving well down the field despite the score not necessarily showing that.
With all that said, here are my five main thoughts heading into the second half. Following the game, I'll have my rapid reaction where I'll have many more thoughts in regards to the entire game.
