EAST RUTHERFORD Miles Boykin Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Frank Gore moved up in the NFL record books with a history-making run — and helped deliver the Miami Dolphins a victory with a game-sealing catch.Gore moved past Curtis Martin for fourth on the career rushing list, Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdown passes, Kenyan Drake ran for a score and the Dolphins took advantage of several mistakes by Sam Darnold and the New York Jets for a 20-12 victory Sunday.But with the game still hanging in the balance late in the fourth quarter, it was the 35-year-old Gore who reached back into his playmaking past. On third-and-19 and the Dolphins nursing an eight-point lead, Ryan Tannehill threw a short pass to Gore, who got his hands on the ball and zipped up the field for exactly 19 yards before going down.“Frank made a heck of a catch there down low,” Tannehill said. “I was off-balance and the ball just went straight down on me. Frank did an amazing job of scooping that thing, making the catch and getting the first down.”The Dolphins were able to then run out the clock, giving them their first 2-0 start since 2013.Gore earned a game ball from coach Adam Gase for that play as well as his 8-yard run in the third quarter that put him behind only Barry Sanders, Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith.“It’s kind of mind blowing,” defensive end Cameron Wake said. “The team as a whole is honored to play with the guy.”Gore, in his first season with the Dolphins and 14th in the NFL, finished with 25 yards on nine carries.“It means a lot,” he said. “I’ve been doubted my whole life Deandre Baker Jersey , coming out of college (at Miami) with the injuries that I had. People were saying I would only be in the league two or three years. I’d be done. I’ve been blessed to keep going and have success.”T.J. McDonald and Xavien Howard each intercepted Darnold, and punter Matt Haack consistently put the Jets (1-1) in lousy field position to start drives.Tannehill finished 17 of 23 for 168 yards and also ran for 44 yards on eight carries for the Dolphins, coming off a win in the longest NFL game since 1970 merger by outlasting Tennessee in 7 hours, 8 minutes last Sunday.“What we’re doing out there is close to what we’re looking to do,” Gase said of his team. “We just have to do a few things better.”SAM’S STARTAfter a solid NFL debut, the 21-year-old Darnold struggled a bit in this one. He was 25 of 41 for 334 yards and a touchdown with the two INTs in his second NFL start, but struggled to get the offense moving.The Jets will have a short turnaround, with New York traveling to winless Cleveland to play Thursday night.“Just missed opportunities,” Darnold said. “I think that goes for every game where you look at all the plays you wish you could have back. Again, short week, got a game Thursday and we’ve got to right back to it tonight.”Darnold got off to a much better start than in the Jets’ opener in Detroit, when his first NFL pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. But on the Jets’ second possession in this one, Darnold turned it over when his pass intended for Quincy Enunwa was intercepted by McDonald.Three plays later, Drake took the handoff from Tannehill up the middle for a 6-yard run to give the Dolphins a 7-0 lead.Miami took advantage of another turnover after Darnold completed a 10-yard pass to Robby Anderson , who had the ball knocked out of his hands by Kiko Alonso. Raekwon McMillan recovered for the Dolphins at the Jets 49, giving Miami a short field. Albert Wilson scored on a 29-yard catch to make it 14-0.MORE MISCUESThe Jets made another mistake that had the effect of a turnover when Henry Anderson’s sack of Tannehill on third-and-6 was negated by a holding penalty on Morris Claiborne, keeping the Dolphins’ drive alive. Two plays later, Tannehill connected with A.J. Derby for a 19-yard touchdown, although Jason Sanders missed the extra point.New York showed some life starting with a 44-yard completion from Darnold to Terrelle Pryor. On second-and-10 from the 14, Darnold completed a short pass to Chris Herndon, who fumbled, recovered and tried to get into the end zone, but was tackled at the 1 as time expired.Darnold and the Jets answered right back to begin the third quarter with a solid drive capped by a 28-yard touchdown catch by Bilal Powell. Jason Myers missed the extra point, making it 20-6.The Jets, coming off a 48-17 rout of Detroit on Monday night, appeared in great shape when Jordan Jenkins forced and recovered a fumble after a strip-sack of Tannehill gave New York the ball at the Miami 12. But, Darnold’s pass to Pryor on the next play was intercepted in the end zone by Howard.“We turned the ball over in our red zone,” coach Todd Bowles said. “We had a turnover in their red zone that led to points. We have to make sure we take care of the football.”After Avery Williamson recovered a fumbled shotgun snap by Tannehill late in the third quarter Julian Love Jersey , the Jets capped an 11-play drive with a 55-yard field goal by Myers. Myers added a 41-yarder with 5:56 remaining.INJURIESJets TE Neal Sterling left with a concussion early in the second quarter and didn’t return.ANTHEMDolphins wide receivers Wilson and Kenny Stills were the only two players to kneel during the national anthem.All of the Jets players linked arms, along with coach Todd Bowles and CEO Christopher Johnson while standing together on the sideline during “The Star-Spangled Banner.”UP NEXTDolphins: home vs. Oakland next Sunday.Jets: at Cleveland on Thursday night. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Some might call Tennessee’s push for a second straight playoff berth desperate. Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan suggests a different motivation for the Titans.“Everyone here has an understanding of what’s at stake and we’re all willing to do what we’ve been doing the past few weeks to get it done,” Lewan said. “I don’t think it matters who gets the credit. … It’s been a cool year. We just got to keep it going.”Winners of three straight, the Titans (8-6) need to beat Washington on Saturday and Indianapolis in the regular-season finale and have either Baltimore or Pittsburgh lose to nab the AFC’s sixth and final seed.Article continues below ...Despite an injury-filled season, the Redskins (7-7) still have playoff hopes too, a game back of Dallas in the NFC East with a wild-card slot more likely if they win out.“We all got to be ready to step our game up two more notches,” said Josh Johnson, the fourth different quarterback to start for Washington this season. “This is a big game.”The Titans are coming off their first shutout in 18 years after downing the Giants 17-0 last weekend. They also can finish off a sweep of the NFC East with a win Saturday. The NFL’s No. 2 scoring defense is allowing only 18.1 points a game, and the Titans have given up only one offensive touchdown over the past three games.Washington snapped a four-game skid, beating Jacksonville 16-13 last weekend . Redskins coach Jay Gruden says the Titans present a much different defensive challenge for Johnson.“He’s got to handle the progressions, the snap counts, the formations, the blitz looks that they give you , which I can’t even tell you how many blitzes there are,” Gruden said. “There are about 3,000 we watched, so it’s going to be a great challenge for him.”Some things to know about Washington and the Titans:RUN HENRY RUNThe big question is what will Titans running back Derrick Henry do next after piling up a franchise-record 408 yards and six touchdowns rushing over his past two games. Henry needs 175 yards to match Hall of Famer Earl Campbell’s franchise record of 583 yards rushing in three straight games. Henry needs one TD to match Campbell’s seven TDs between Sept. 30, 1979 and Oct. 14, 1979.The Redskins, fourth in the NFL with 25 takeaways, have allowed at least 130 yards rushing in each of their past five games.“It’s always a welcome (sight) when you’re able to run the football in this league,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said.AP ACCOMPLISHMENTWashington running back Adrian Peterson needs 77 more yards rushing to reach 1,000 for the season for the first time since 2015 when he ran for 1,485 for the Minnesota Vikings. Picked up by Washington in August, Peterson has started all 14 games for the Redskins, rushing for seven TDs. No one wants to see him reach the milestone more than Pro Bowl left tackle and fellow Oklahoma Sooner Trent Williams.“It’s an outstanding accomplishment for a guy who was said to not have anything left,” Williams said.MORE TITANIC DTennessee has allowed only one running back to reach 100 yards or more this season Quinnen Williams Jersey , and Houston’s Lamar Miller got 97 on one play. They held Ezekiel Elliott to 61 yards on Nov. 5, Leonard Fournette to 36 yards on Dec. 6 and Giants rookie Saquon Barkley to a 2.2-yard average and only 31 yards last week.HALFTIME BREAKTHROUGHWhen Johnson led Washington to a fourth-quarter comeback and a victory last week, he did something no quarterback had done for the franchise since 2016 after rallying from a 10-3 halftime deficit. Washington had lost all seven games this season when trailing at the half with the Redskins’ previous victory when trailing at the break coming in 2016 in Philadelphia, a streak of 15 games. Johnson, who made his first start since 2011, wants to build on that momentum in his seventh career start.MISSINGThe Titans’ defense is seriously hurting. Starting cornerback Logan Ryan was put on injured reserve Tuesday after breaking his left leg. Linebacker Brian Orakpo, who missed the Giants’ game, has yet to practice with an injured elbow, while four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey has missed practice this week with an injured knee. Safety Kenny Vaccaro is working through the concussion protocol.Washington put safety Montae Nicholson on the NFL reserve/non-football injury list Wednesday after he was arrested early Tuesday.
