As the NFL season hit the midpoint, Sunday's slate of games featured several key matchups between teams jockeying for position in the division standings and playoff race.

It was also a big day for one winless team. Miami defeated Kansas City, 31-3, to pick up its first victory of the season. Tight end Anthony Fasano ('06) played a pivotal role for the Dolphins, catching two touchdown passes from quarterback Matt Moore. Fasano's first score came late in the first quarter, a 3-yard catch in the back of the end zone. He also hauled in a 35-yard pass on Miami's first possession of the second quarter, to give the Dolphins a 14-3 lead.

In a rematch of Super Bowl XLII, Eli Manning outdueled Tom Brady, leading New York to a 24-20 victory at New England. Justin Tuck ('05) had three tackles and one pass deflection for the Giants. Trying to make a play in the closing minute, Patriots safety Sergio Brown ('10) was flagged for a tough pass interference call that set up the Giants' game-winning touchdown.

Tim Tebow led Denver to a 38-24 win in Oakland. David Bruton ('09) had three tackles, including two solo tackles for the Broncos.

Green Bay continued its hot streak, winning a shootout in San Diego, 45-38. Ryan Grant ('05) had four carries for 16 yards for the defending Super Bowl champions.

Golden Tate had one catch for eight yards in Seattle's 23-13 loss at Dallas.

Philadelphia hosts Chicago in tonight's Monday Night Football action. Trevor Laws ('07) should be in action for the Eagles.
