Dolphins gain first victory of the season, avoid 0-16

The Dolphins win.

Haven't written that sentence since last December 12, 2010. The Dolphins had lost 10 consecutive games before today and that is where the losing skid ends.

The Dolphins didn't just beat the Chiefs, they whipped them, 31-3. They scored 31 consecutive points. They manhandled the Chiefs offense.

...And there's this, too: They fell behind the Colts in the Suck for Luck sweepstakes. It is fair to say the Dolphins won't get Luck. The Colts are in a full-on retreat. They are truly playing terribly. They're on their way to 0-16.

The Dolphins?

Not so much. This win saves Tony Sparano's job for this week certainly and perhaps through the remainder of the season.

Matt Moore played his best game of the season, completing 17 of 23 for 244 yards with three TD passes and no interceptions. His passer rating for the game was 147.5.

Reggie Bush gained 92 yards on 13 carries and caught three passes for 50 yards. Even Brandon Marshall had a TD grab, only his second of the season.

Begs the critical question, where's all this been?

But I'm not in a critical mood this evening.

Enjoy this.
