Rapid Reaction: Dolphins 38, Chiefs 31


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

The Miami Dolphins did their part Sunday to maintain drama in the AFC East with a late touchdown drive to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 38-31 in Arrowhead Stadium.

One year removed from a one-victory campaign, the Dolphins are 10-5, same as the New England Patriots. The New York Jets must beat the Seattle Seahawks at Qwest Field to keep pace.

But even if the Jets lose in Seattle, next Sunday's showdown between the Dolphins and Jets at the Meadowlands could be for the division title.

Chad Pennington made sure the Dolphins' storybook season continued by orchestrating a 13-play, 85-yard drive that consumed 8:33 off the clock and ended with a 14-yard catch and rumble by tight end Anthony Fasano for the winning touchdown.
