Dolphins Vs. Bills: Two Dan Carpenter Field Goals Give Miami 13-7 Lead Over Buffalo At Half

The Miami Dolphins took a 13-7 lead over the Buffalo Bills as the two teams headed to the locker room at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday afternoon. After Anthony Fasano scored on the first play of he second quarter, Miami added two Dan Carpenter field goals in the second to take the six point lead. Miami drove deep into the red zone on both occasions but had to settle for three points each time. In both cases, Brandon Marshall had two huge drops and Miami failed to capitalize on golden opportunities to take a two touchdown lead.

Reggie Bush, who's looking for his third straight 100 yard game, broke out in the second quarter and had a huge first half. Bush finished with 81 yards on 15 carries. His fumble in the first, however, led to the Bills only touchdown in the first. Miami's second fumble squandered another huge opportunity at the end of the first half, as Matt Moore had it knocked loose on the 12 yard line.

Miami will take the 6 point lead, but it was certainly a frustrating second quarter full of missed chances to build a big lead.
