The Dolphins controlled the ball for more than a minute longer than the Ravens and had 21 more yards of offense, but both teams really just slugged it out. After the Ravens held inside the 5-yard line about halfway through the first quarter, the Dolphins' Dan Carpenter kicked a 21-yard field goal. The Ravens responded when Matt Stover made a 47-yard field goal with 1:31 remaining.

Dolphins: FG Carpenter 21, 8:23.

Ravens: FG Stover 47, 1:31.

The Terrell Suggs of old returned, intercepting a pass from Chad Pennington and returning it 44 yards for a touchdown. Suggs, who had been blitzing most of the first half, dropped into coverage and stepped in front of the intended receiver and went untouched into the end zone. The Dolphins responded with another field goal, but the Ravens went 67 yards in 11 plays as Joe Flacco hit Derrick Mason with an 11-yard touchdown pass with 30 seconds left in the half.
