THE AFTERMATH

The Dolphins took a major step on Sunday with their victory over the New York Jets as they now turn their attention to the Buffalo Bills.

The 21-10 victory at Giants Stadium evened the Dolphins record at 1-1, with the Bills coming to town on Sunday night.

Coach Dave Wannstedt said Monday he was happy with the offensive balance the Dolphins showed in the victory and said he wasn't concerned the Dolphins didn't score in the second half after jumping out to a 21-3 halftime lead.

Wannstedt pointed out that two key plays — an incompletion to Derrius Thompson on third down and Jay Fiedler's fumble — stopped two potential scoring drives and the Dolphins then were more concerned with grinding out the clock than scoring in the fourth quarter.

The Dolphins escaped Sunday's game without any injuries even worth mentioning.

Jason Taylor was listed on the postgame report as having sprained an ankle, but he finished the game.

Wannstedt said the Dolphins were hoping to get safety Shawn Wooden back Sunday against the Bills, while the status of tackle Mark Dixon might be better known on Wednesday. At this point, though, it doesn't look like Dixon will be able to play.
