Dolphins 28, Bills 25

Ajayi carries way into record book

MIAMI — As the NFL's newest rushing star, Jay Ajayi is carrying the Dolphins toward respectability. Ajayi tied a league record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row, helping Miami rally past the Bills.

Ajayi ran for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards last week in a win over Pittsburgh. Against Buffalo, the second-year pro out of Boise State scored on a 4-yard run, and busted a 53-yarder when the Dolphins were pinned at their 3 and trailing in the fourth quarter.

He tied the record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.

"It's surreal to me," Ajayi said. "The backs I'm in company with — that's huge. Those are Hall of Fame guys, guys I look up to."

Miami ended Buffalo's four-game winning streak.

"We got outplayed, we got outcoached, we got out-everythinged," Bills coach Rex Ryan said. "They were the more physical team today, there's no doubt about that."
