The Dolphins need to stick with their running game and a short-to-intermediate passing game. Jay Fiedler is a brilliant quarterback with a great mind for the game, but he doesn't have the physical gifts to do much more than that.
Question on the Giants: Do you anticipate the rushing attack being an issue all season?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey finished with 11 catches for 110 yards. He also got called for a taunting penalty for flipping a ball at Buckley. ... Miami safety Brock Marion also got a taunting penalty after making an interception. ... Miami linebacker Junior Seau pulled a hamstring late in the game. He finished with a team-high 13 tackles. ... Strahan led New York with nine tackles. ... Before this season, McKnight had 13 carries in nine seasons for 97 yards, the longest a 19-yarder last season.
