Miami Dolphins run over Oakland Raiders

Reggie Bush ran for 172 yards and two touchdowns

MIAMI (AP) -- Reggie Bush ran for 172 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, and the Miami Dolphins won a home opener for the first time since 2005 by beating the Oakland Raiders 35-13.

Ryan Tannehill threw his first NFL touchdown pass, ran for another and avoided any turnovers after tossing three interceptions in his pro debut a week earlier.

The Dolphins improved to 1-1, and Joe Philbin earned a sideline drenching for his first victory as a head coach. The Raiders, under new coach Dennis Allen, are 0-2 for the first time since 2007.

Bush broke four tackles on a 23-yard touchdown run that put Miami ahead to stay in the third quarter. After Miami forced a punt, Bush struck again, this time on a 65-yard scoring run.
