Dolphins 20, Eagles 19

Miami gets win done on defense

PHILADELPHIA — Ndamukong Suh dominated, Chris McCain delivered a knockout blow and Reshad Jones made another big play as the Dolphins rallied behind their defense to beat the Eagles.

Ryan Tannehill's deflected pass ended up in the hands of Jarvis Landry for the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter as Miami snapped a two-game skid.

"It's great for us to pat ourselves on the back right this second," Suh, the All-Pro defensive tackle, said after having a sack, three tackles for loss and three hurries.

"He stepped up," interim coach Dan Campbell said. "He did so much for us."

Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford injured his left shoulder and sustained a concussion on a hard hit by linebacker McCain in the third quarter and didn't return, though X-rays were negative. Mark Sanchez drove Philadelphia to the Dolphins' 8-yard line late in the fourth quarter, but Jones, a safety, intercepted his pass in the end zone.
