Giants at Dolphins halftime score: 17-17, can anybody tackle?

Despite missing a ridiculous number of tackles, the Giants have tied the game.

The New York Giants came into their week 14 trip to South Beach in desperate need of a win to keep any hopes of a playoff berth alive.

The Giants' season is on the verge of collapse as they battle injuries and their own ineptitude to seize this one last opportunity to stay relevant in the playoff hunt.

And at halftime, the Giants are still in it, with the score tied 17-17.

So far Eli Manning has been deadly efficient, completing 14-of-16 for 154 yards and two touchdowns.

Eli picked up 45 of those yards on a single pass to Odell Beckham, as he burned Brent Grimes on a post route. That turned into a 60 yard play with the addition of a 15 yard roughing the passer penalty. The chunk yardage quickly put the Giants in position to get Stony Brook's Will Tye his first NFL touchdown.

The Giants' defense has had some atrocious -- to say the least -- tackling, but they have kept Miami from running away with the game.

After stealing the first possession with a Landon Collins forced fumble, the Giants will get the ball to start the second half
