Humphries' favorite target was nowhere in sight

January 11, 1993|By Orlando Sentinel

MIAMI -- How dominating was Miami's defense? The Dolphins posted their second shutout of the season and completely took the San Diego Chargers out of the game in the second half.

During their first four possessions of the second half, the Chargers combined to lose 22 yards, including penalties, and did not complete a pass during that stretch. In the first half, the Chargers' longest drive was 27 yards.

San Diego quarterback Stan Humphries also went through a nightmare. Humphries threw three interceptions in a span of nine throws in the first half. That followed a string of 94 passes over four games in which he did not throw an interception.

The Dolphins also took away Humphries' favorite target, Pro Bowl receiver Anthony Miller. Miller did not have a catch until the final 1:06.

"He's a good quarterback, but you could see him start to hesitate as the game went on," said Miami cornerback J.B. Brown, who broke up three passes, including two intended for Miller.

Rookie Troy Vincent, who had a stomach ailment, had a spectacular game. Aside from two interceptions that set up scores, Vincent broke up five passes and completely shut down receiver Nate Lewis.
