Rapid Reaction: Dolphins 21, Seahawks 19


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

Look out. The Miami Dolphins are above .500 for the first time since the end of 2005.

Not only that, but they're tied with the once-ordained Buffalo Bills and are a single game out of first place in the AFC East.

The Dolphins held off the Seattle Seahawks 21-19 at home Sunday. The victory was significant with the New England Patriots and New York Jets also winning.

Miami wasn't prolific aside from a couple slick run plays. Ricky Williams had a 51-yard up-the-gut touchdown run in the second quarter and finished with 105 yards on 12 carries. Ronnie Brown broke off a 16-yard touchdown run out of the Wildcat formation.

Chad Pennington completed 22 of 36 passes for 209 yards, one touchdown and an interception that was returned for a touchdown. He used nine receivers, none who had more than four catches.
