Kearse, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, was inactive for the first time since returning from a knee injury that ended his season after two games last year. ... Miami had three interceptions in the first half after getting just five in the first nine games.
Miami could not contain Eagles RB Brian Westbrook, and that failure led to Philadelphia controlling time of possession and limiting the chances the Dolphins’ chances on offense. Westbrook excelled in the zone running game with excellent cutbacks and good yards after contact. He was able to bounce the ball to the outside after drawing Miami’s edge players close to the blocks of the Eagles’ tackles and tight ends, who then did a great job of keeping their hands inside and sustaining blocks that allowed Westbrook to turn the corner and make big gains.
