Sure, they could point out that they'd played well, only to give those games away. And they could try to look at them as flukes, two weeks of last-minute disappointments that couldn't possibly be repeated.

Could they?

With a third straight game on the line Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, the Dolphins answered their own question with an interception.

Reshad Jones picked off Andy Dalton's overthrown pass at midfield with 1:22 left, preserving a 17-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals that ended the two weeks of Miami misery.

“In the back of your mind, you hope that it doesn't show up again,” receiver Brian Hartline said. “With that being said, we got over that hump.”

Miami (2-3) had led at halftime before losing to the New York Jets and Arizona in overtime. The last one really stung: Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a fumble that helped the Cardinals tie it, then an interception in overtime that set up a 24-21 defeat.

Miami takes on the St. Louis Rams at 1 p.m. Sunday at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens.
