Dolphins Defense Dominates – Improve to 5-7; Top Ravens 15-13

The Dolphins were outgained 375 to 219 yards by the Ravens on Sunday, but made the most of their yards as they topped Baltimore 15-13 to improve to 5-7 on the season.

The defense of the Dolphins picked off a pair of deflected Matt Schaub passes to score two touchdowns 20 seconds apart late in the first half Sunday, and it was enough to lead them to the win.

The Ravens moved into Dolphins territory twice in the final six minutes but failed to score as Miami’s defense helped get the win.

On the day the Fins put up just eight first downs, but it was enough to improve to 4-4 under Dan Campbell.

Reshad Jones intercepted a pass batted by defensive tackle Jordan Phillips to set up the game’s first score. On the next play, Ryan Tannehill hit a leaping DeVante Parker at the goal line for a 38-yard touchdown.

Just three plays later Derrick Shelby batted a pass in the air, caught it and ran 22 yards to the end zone for his first NFL touchdown.

The Dolphins D put up a goal-line stand in the second quarter, and turned away the Ravens down the stretch. Olivier Vernon totaled 2 1/2 sacks, one on third down with the Ravens nearing field goal range and five minutes left.

Lamar Miller rushed for 113 yards, but Tannehill went 9 for 19 for just 86 yards, but it was good enough for the two-point win.
