On Sunday, the Dolphins scored on their first three possessions, jumping out to a 13-0 lead in the first quarter. However, both teams struggled to move the ball in a scoreless second half. Miami’s defense, led by clutch interceptions from Jevon Holland and Noah Igbinoghene in the game’s final three minutes, held the Steelers out of the end zone in the closing minutes to preserve the victory.
