The Giants head to Hard Rock Stadium to face the Miami Dolphins, as Big Blue will look to build momentum after winning two of their past three games. The Giants and Dolphins have met nine other times prior to Sunday's matchup, with Big Blue leading the all-time series, 7-2. The Giants are also undefeated in road games against Miami.
The Giants made their first trip down to the Sunshine State to play the Dolphins in a battle between 9-3 teams in Week 14 of the 1993 season. Big Blue came out victorious in the contest, as they delivered a 19-14 win against Miami. Phil Simms led the offense, throwing for 257 yards, completing over 70 percent of his passes, and tossing a touchdown pass to Howard Cross. The Giants' defense was also stout, as they intercepted two passes from Steve DeBerg and tallied three sacks.

Big Blue returned to Miami with similar success in 1996, as the Giants posted a 17-7 victory against Dan Marino and the Dolphins. Big Blue's defense intercepted passes from Marino twice and held their high-powered offense to just seven points. On offense, Rodney Hampton and Tyrone Wheatley combined for 119 rushing yards and a touchdown. Cross also added a receiving touchdown in the win.
The Giants would next play the Dolphins on the road in 2007, but the game was not actually played in Miami. This meeting took place at Wembley Stadium in London, where the Giants would put up a strong defensive performance. Big Blue posted 13 unanswered points in the first half, highlighted by a 10-yard Eli Manning touchdown run. After going into halftime with a 13-0 lead, the Dolphins scored 10 unanswered points, capped off by a 21-yard touchdown reception by Ted Ginn Jr. However, the Giants were able to hold on for the three-point victory.
In Big Blue's most recent visit to Miami, the two teams entered a back-and-forth affair. In a game with four lead changes, the Giants found themselves down 24-17 midway through the third quarter after Ryan Tannehill connected on a 47-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills. Manning would go on to toss two touchdown passes in the second half, finishing the game with 337 yards, four touchdowns and an 87.1 completion percentage, and the Giants emerged with a 31-24 victory.
