Eagles Sink Dolphins,
MIAMI (AP)- Philadelphia sputtered least Saturday night and the Eagles
delivered the National Football League's third straight knockout punch
on the Miami Dolphins, 14 10, in a preseason game at the Orange Bowl
John Huarte, the Eagles' No. 2 quarterback, was less than
sensational but managed to hook up with speedy Harold Jackson on a
87-yard scoring pass that spurred the Eagles.
Safety Dick Anderson lifted Miami into contention with his second
interception midway through the fourth quarter. Jim Kiick barreled over
from the 3-yard line to cut the deficit to 14-10 with 8:45 to play.
The Eagles' massive front four halted all Miami threats
thereafter and Philadelphia joined Minnesota, which beat the American
Football League Dolphins 45-10, and Chicago, a 16-10 winner here a week
ago, as conquerors of the fourth-year expansion team
Rick Norton stood in for regular quarterback Bob Griese and,
although moving the ball well, failed to generate points for the winless
Philadelphia is 1-1 after losing to Atlanta 13-7 in its preseason
opener last week.
The starting quarterback, Norm Snead, moved them 47 yards for the
first touchdown, with Cyril Pinder going over from the three-yard line
Miami's first three points came on a 10-yard field goal by Karl
Miami quarterback Rick Norton did not have a good night. Right
talking with Coach George Wilson.
