Baltimore looked likely to open the scoring as they sat five yards out of Miami's endzone but the Dolphins defence held strong as the Ravens offence ran the ball on fourth down but failed to make the yardage to keep possession.

With two minutes remaining, Ravens quarterback Matt Schaub was picked off by Reshad Jones and Ryan Tannehill would pass to DeVante Parker for a 38-yard touchdown a few plays later.

Derrick Shelby then intercepted Schaub againas he tipped the ball at the line of scrimmage, and the defender ran the ball home for a defensive touchdown.

In the second half, Baltimore scored with their first possession as Schaub played a short pass to Javorius Allen and the running back ran 41 yards to score the away side's first touchdown of the day.

The away team then closed the gap to two points after Tucker hit another field goal at the start of the fourth quarter but the kicker missed a 55-yard attempt with less than three minutes remaining.

Miami move to 5-7 on the season with the victory while the Ravens see their playoff hopes fade as they fall to 4-8.
