Bradford, Rams Can't Complete Fourth Quarter Rally
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.
On the drive before their final series, the Rams scored on Sam Bradford's 1-yard touchdown sneak. It was followed by a successful two point conversion, the final score of the game.
Bradford finished 26 of 39 for 315 yards and no touchdowns.
