A look back

The Dolphins and Giants have only actually ever met a handful of times (I think its 5 times). So, I'm not going to take a look back into one of those games. Rather, I'm going to take a look back to the last time the Phins played at Wembly Stadium, against the 49ers in 1988.

From the NY Times:

LEAD: Dave Archer sped into the end zone with 1 minute 28 seconds remaining to give the Miami Dolphins a 27-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in an National Football League preseason game at Wembley Stadium tonight.

Dave Archer sped into the end zone with 1 minute 28 seconds remaining to give the Miami Dolphins a 27-21 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in an National Football League preseason game at Wembley Stadium tonight.

Miami, which had given up a 10-point lead, struck back from a 14-13 halftime deficit to move in front again. Late in the third quarter, the Dolphins fell behind, 21-20, and San Francisco held on until Archer's game-winning score.
