EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Oct. 5 (UPI) --
The Miami Dolphins, sparked by cornerbacks Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison, Sunday frustrated Kerry Collins
on the way to a 23-10 win over the New York Giants.
Surtain and Madison, matched up against wide receivers Amani Toomer and Ike Hilliard, made the plays for the Dolphins' secondary. Surtain intercepted Collins twice, and Madison also had a pick.
The Giants (2-2) committed four turnovers overall in falling to a woeful 1-6 under Coach Jim Fassel following a bye. They are 3-12 overall after their bye week.
With their defense leading the way, the Dolphins (3-1) were able to win their third straight game despite Ricky Williams rushing for just 39 yards on 21 attempts. Williams did score on a one-yard run with under five minutes to go, giving the Dolphins a 23-10 lead.
