    Miami was hoping for another heaping helping of home cooking today as the visiting Rams came to town this week.

    The first quarter started off slow with both teams unable to sustain a drive for most of the quarter. Finally, with 9 seconds left in the quarter the Dolphins were finally able to score on a 8yd touchdown pass from Tannehill to Ballard.

    In the second quarter the teams finally were able to get their offenses flowing with the Rams connecting on a 42yd touchdown pass to tie the game. The Dolphins answered right back though with a 105yd kickoff return by Reggie Bush to once again take a 7 point lead. Miami closed the quarter with a 32 yd fieldgoal to end the half Miami 17 - St. Louis 7.

    The second half was a slow grinding, clock burning affair for the Dolphins; and although the Rams had found some success on offense in the second quarter, that was all over now. The Rams offense was not able to cross midfield the entire second half. The Dolphins managed a 4yd touchdown run by Peyton Hillis in the 3rd quarter, and a late 4th quarter fieldgoal.

    While the game ended in a much needed win for the Dolphins who are in a tight race for the AFC East title, the game was definitely bittersweet as Reggie Bush broke his collarbone and will be out of action for the rest of the regular season.

    As A side note, although the offenses were both anemic, there were no turnovers by either team today.

    Final Score Miami 27 v. St. Louis 7
