Dolphins vs. Rams score update: Ryan Tannehill, Sam Bradford show how execution matters in 1st

Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams had individual plays of 65 and 44 yards in the 1st half of their noon game with the Miami Dolphins, and 100 yards on the ground and through the air. But all they had to show for it were two field goals. Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins have been totally silenced on the ground, but Tannehill's ability to execute all the way through a drive means they lead by a score of 17-6 halfway through the third quarter.

Without Danny Amendola lots of fans and experts were worried about the Rams' passing game, but Bradford's found three players three times so far—Chris Givens, for 85 yards; Brandon Gibson, for 40; and Lance Kendricks, for 34.

That is—the Rams have found replacements for Amendola everywhere except when it comes time to find the end zone, and that could cost them the game. Of course, the Dolphins have been pretty solid on offense themselves, so it's hard to blame this entirely on the Rams; at the same time, the Rams have 323 total yards on offense, and exactly six points to show for it.
