      Rushing attack leads the way to a victory




      The Miami Dolphins running game has been a question mark as the team heads into the regular season. The Dolphins running backs showed they had some answers on Saturday night as they powered the Dolphins to a 25-20 home victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Knowshon Moreno debuted in his first preseason game since his knee surgery and he looked to be in midseason form by rushing for 64 yards on 10 carries. Undrafted free agent running back Orleans Darkwa had a spectacular night , rushing for a touchdown and 70 yards on 6 carries. Wide receiver Damien Williams caught a 54 yard pass from quarterback Matt Moore in the second half to help spark the offense.

      The Dolphins first team defense also had a strong outing, limiting the Cowboys to 110 yards a two field goals in the first half. Cam Wake (2 sacks) and Olivier Vernon (1 sack) had solid performances up front. The Dolphins play their final preseason game on Thursday versus the St. Louis Rams at Sun Life Stadium.

      Dolphins topple Bucs 20-14



      Second string quarterback Matt Moore led the offense on two touchdown scoring drives as the Miami Dolphins defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-14 for their first preseason victory.

      Cornerback Brent Grimes made a game changing play in the second quarter when he knocked the ball loose from Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans. The fumble resulted in a touchback for the Dolphins. The Dolphins continued to have struggles running the ball as they mustered -5 yards on 9 carries in the first half. Guard Dallas Thomas struggled as well, letting Bucs defensive lineman Gerald McCoy get past him and force a fumble by Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

      Will Davis continued to impress with another solid performance Saturday night. The defensive line dominated again in the trenches with five sacks. Rookie Terrence Fede made a strong case for himself making the team with his stellar performance. The Dolphins backup units played very well also, showing there will be tough decisions for the front office to make when final cuts come later this month. Next up for the Dolphins is the Dallas Cowboys, who they host on Saturday night.
