LOS ANGELES -- For 54 dull and rainy minutes, the Los Angeles Rams defense appeared to be carrying Jared Goff to a victory in his NFL debut.With two dramatic drives, Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins washed it all away.DeVante Parker caught a 9-yard touchdown pass with 36 seconds to play, and the surging Dolphins rallied for two late scores to spoil Goffs big day with a 14-10 victory Sunday.Tannehill passed for 172 yards in the fifth straight victory for the Dolphins (6-4), who were dominated by the Rams defense until their final chances for redemption. Miami left the Coliseum crowd in disbelief and barely kept alive its longest winning streak since 2008.I dont even know (how the comeback happened), Dolphins coach Adam Gase said. Just nothing was going right for us. We were terrible on offense.After Jarvis Landry caught a 10-yard TD pass with 4:02 to play, the Dolphins got the ball right back and drove downfield for Parkers diving TD reception in the corner. Miami gained 152 of its 240 total yards on the final two drives, leaving the Los Angeles defense heartbroken and furious.We played pretty much great the whole day, Rams defensive end Robert Quinn said. We kept fighting, but those last 6 minutes, I think its going to haunt us.Todd Gurley scored on a 24-yard run in the first quarter for Los Angeles (4-6), but neither team managed much offense until Miamis late surge.GOFFS TURNUntil the late swerve, the game was a decent coming-out party for the NFLs No. 1 draft pick.Goff went 17 of 31 for 134 yards after finally getting his chance in the 10th game of the season. But the Rams did little between Miamis two touchdowns, and when Los Angeles got the ball back at its 41 with 29 seconds left, Goff moved the team only 12 yards before throwing an incompletion in the end zone as time expired.Felt good, Goff said. Were obviously disappointed with the result there at the end and how things turned out, and how we felt through the whole game and how in control we were. At the end, 6 minutes left, we just kind of couldnt put it away.Nearly seven months after the Rams traded up to draft Goff, their prized rookie finally got his first start and was introduced to raucous cheers on a rare rainy day in downtown LA, but he made few memorable plays in a conservative game plan.The rookie got his first NFL completion on a short pass to fellow rookie Tyler Higbee, but neither team made much headway in the first three quarters. Goff showed mobility in the pocket and made a handful of key third-down throws to keep the Rams moving.I was disappointed in the outcome of the game, but I think you could see the light, Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher said. There was a light there for (Goff), so well continue to allow him to get ready, continue to progress.BEATING THEMSELVESFisher called it one of the most disappointing losses of his long career.To play 3 1/2 quarters of good football and then to let things slip away in the last 6 minutes was really disappointing, Fisher said.Los Angeles took its first double-digit lead at home this season on a 46-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein in the third quarter. But after Zuerlein missed a 48-yard attempt off the upright with 6:40 to play, the Dolphins finally mounted a scoring drive capped when Landry caught a short pass and his teammates pushed the pile 4 yards into the end zone.Its all about will, Landry said. I couldnt get in there alone. I closed my eyes and went for the ride.AWAY FROM HOMEThe Dolphins spent the week in California after beating San Diego last weekend, but their offense was mostly awful until Tannehill got it moving in the final minutes. Parker had eight catches for 79 yards, and Jay Ajayi rushed for 77 yards.INJURY REPORTDolphins: OG Laremy Tunsil started at left tackle in place of Branden Albert, but injured his shoulder during the first half. Backup RT Sam Young moved over to the left side. Albert had surgery on a torn ligament in his wrist, but wouldnt rule out playing next week.Rams: Quinn started five days after spending the night in a hospital with an apparent case of dehydration. ... C Tim Barnes also started after weeklong concerns about his foot. ... Rookie LB Josh Forrest hurt his knee in the first half and didnt return.UP NEXTDolphins: Return home to host struggling San Francisco (1-9).Rams: At New Orleans for yet another long road trip in a season full of travel.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL [url=http://www.cheapnuggetsjerseys.com/]Cheap Denver Nuggets Jerseys[/url] .

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me.

Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half.

The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. YAS MARINA, Abu Dhabi -- Formula One teams and Bernie Ecclestone have agreed to introduce standing restarts after every safety car period from the first race of 2017 onwards.The grids 11 team principals met with F1s CEO in the Yas Marina paddock on Friday to discuss the change, which is an attempt to make races more entertaining. Earlier this year, teams decided to implement standing starts in the case of wet races that begun under the safety car (for 2017), but the latest agreement covers any deployment of it in any weather condition.?When asked about whether the group had agreed the change with Ecclestone, Haas boss Guenther Steiner confirmed: Youre absolutely right.He went on to explain how the groupp felt the new rule would help spice up the spectacle and add a new element of risk.ddddddddddddIt spices the show up, thats the good thing. We all love starts, there is a risk but where there is also reward -- some will win, some will lose. If it brings life into the sport like it was in the old days then there is a long way that we can go.The proposal will still need to go through the Strategy Group and F1 Commission -- which does not require a formal meeting as votes can be made via fax -- before finally being ratified by the FIAs World Motor Sport Council on November 30.
