Wembley Stadium, London
WEMBLEY, England (AP) -- For art, they could have gone to the British Museum. For something grand, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace were a train ride away.
It's been a while since two teams have started 0-8 in the same season, but the Dolphins and Rams ended that streak with losses Sunday.
|*--Won 9th game|
Manning failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time this season. ... Ginn, who returned the opening kickoff in last year's college football championship game, scored his first NFL touchdown. ... Miami's 14th-ranked pass defense is sure to improve after allowing only a net 49 yards to New York.
In an ugly game, the New York running game was the difference. After coming out and trying to throw the ball vertically, the Giants decided to get down and dirty and use the ground game against a Miami defense that was without MLB Zach Thomas. New York OG Chris Snee did an excellent job of pulling and finding blocks at the second level as the Giants continually pounded the ball off tackle. Starting RB Brandon Jacobs had a career-high 131 yards on 23 carries. With a long trip and facing the winless Dolphins, the Giants looked like a team that just wanted to put this game away and get home. It wasn't pretty and probably wasn't what the people of London were hoping for, but the Giants enter their bye week 6-2, and Jacobs is the key reason.
