MIAMI, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins scored one long touchdown on a flea-flicker and another with a running back-to-running back handoff.
Then came the biggest surprise of all: Miami has a winning record. The Dolphins' sizable bag of tricks saved them on a day the offense sputtered, and they withstood a frantic rally by injury-riddled Seattle to win 21-19 Sunday.
Surprising Miami (5-4) won its third game in a row and remained in the thick of the AFC East race. After going 1-15 last season, the Dolphins are above .500 for the first time since the end of the 2005 season.
