The Fins were able to get off to a hot start by scoring 17 points in the first half, with 14 of those points coming from touchdowns scored by running back Lamar Miller.
Despite averaging seven yards per carry, Miller rushed the ball just 12 times, with 11 of his carries coming before halftime. He would finish the game with a total of 89 yards.
After scoring just a field goal in the first quarter, quarterback Eli Manning got the Giant offense back on track by tossing a couple of touchdown passes to receiver Reuben Randle and tight end Will Tye.
However, the story of the game would ultimately be Manning’s connection with second year Pro Bowl receiver Odell Beckham Jr. After the Dolphins regained the lead in the third quarter with a 47-yard touchdown pass to receiver Kenny Stills, the Giants answered back with a touchdown pass of their own to Beckham.
The duo also came through for New York again early in the fourth quarter when they connected on an 84-yard touchdown that would eventually seal the win for the Giants and propel them into a three way tie for the lead in the NFC East.
Manning finished the game with 337 yards and four touchdowns, while Beckham Jr. finished with 166 yards on seven receptions and two touchdowns.
After essentially abandoning the running game, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill would go on to attempt 41 passes, completing just 25 of them for 236 yards and a touchdown.
The Dolphins will play the Chargers (3-10) in San Diego next week as they face the prospect of another lost season.
The Giants, meanwhile, will go on to the face the undefeated Carolina Panthers (13-0) as they look to stay atop their division.
