Dolphins 15, Ravens 13

Dolphins deflect rally by Ravens

MIAMI — Miami defensive end Derrick Shelby batted the pass in the air, caught it and sprinted to the end zone with quarterback Matt Schaub chasing him in vain.

Once Shelby and the Dolphins built a 15-point lead, the Ravens couldn't quite catch them, either.

Miami intercepted two deflected Schaub passes to score two touchdowns 20 seconds apart late in the first half, and held on to win. Baltimore had the ball in Miami territory twice in the final six minutes.

"We had to grind it out today," Shelby said.

Miami managed only eight first downs but improved to 4-4 under interim coach Dan Campbell.

The score was 0-0 when safety Reshad Jones intercepted a pass batted by defensive tackle Jordan Phillips. On the next play, Ryan Tannehill hit DeVante Parker at the goal line for a 38-yard touchdown. Three snaps later, the 280-pound Shelby batted a pass in the air, caught it and ran 22 yards for his first NFL touchdown.

"I got free. I got my hands up. I got the tip," he said. "Touchdown."
