The St. Louis Rams nearly constructed a fourth quarter comeback, but Sam Bradford and his Danny Amendola-less wide receiver corps didn't have the firepower to drive 97 yards in under two minutes.
Rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein attempted a 66-yard field goal to tie the game, but he—to little surprise—missed it. After hitting his first 15 NFL field goal tries, Zuerlein missed three today, which ultimately cost the Rams a win—or at least a shot to win the game in overtime.
Statistically, the Rams were the dominant team.
In fact, they more than doubled the Dolphins' offensive output, but St. Louis beat itself by committing 12 penalties for 96 yards.
Ryan Tannehill did just enough to get his team back to .500 entering their bye week. Despite his best efforts, Sam Bradford couldn't get his team a win as it embarks on a brutal stretch of games that includes bouts with the Packers, Patriots and 49ers.
