Rapid Reaction: Dolphins 16, Rams 12

Pretty it wasn't.

Even so, the Miami Dolphins posted a road victory over the St. Louis Rams, 16-12, on Sunday afternoon in the Edwards Jones Dome.

The Dolphins will enter December two games above .500 and remain in the wild-card hunt. They will play the gagging Buffalo Bills next Sunday in Toronto.

The Dolphins intercepted Marc Bulger three times and gained 327 net yards, spreading the ball around to running backs Ronnie Brown (48 yards) and Ricky Williams (54 yards). Brown scored the game's lone touchdown in the second quarter, capping a 91-yard drive.

Chad Pennington completed only 13 of 26 passes for 133 yards.

It was enough. The Dolphins are 7-5 and very much alive in the playoff race.
