Miami withstands late St. Louis Rams rally to win 17-14MIAMI (AP) - Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdown passes and the Miami Dolphins withstood a late rally by the St. Louis Rams to win 17-14 Sunday.
The Rams faced a fourth-and-8 at the Miami 49-yard line with 30 seconds left, and rather than go for a first down, coach Jeff Fisher sent out rookie Greg Zuerlein to try a 66-yard field goal, which missed wide left. Zuerlein made two field goals to improve to 15 for 15 this season, but then missed three times in a row, including from 48 and 32 yards in the first half.
The Rams outgained the Dolphins 461 yards to 209. Both teams are 3-3. Fisher lost to the team that courted him in January, when he chose the Rams job instead.
