The Miami Dolphins have been struggling on the offensive side of the ball through the first five weeks of the season. Part of the reason for those struggles has been a running game that has been anemic, averaging just 72.4 yards per game. That ranks 31st in the league, and it didn’t look promising for that number to improve against a Steelers defense that ranked 5th in the league coming in to Sunday’s game.

However, second-year running back Jay Ajayi broke out with a huge performance, carrying the ball 25 times for 204 yards and two touchdowns. The second touchdown essentially clinched the game as the Dolphins were up just eight, 23-15, with under a minute remaining. Ajayi took the handoff and burst through the hole, sprinting away from defenders en route to a 62-yard touchdown.

The Dolphins won 30-15 to improve their record to 2-4 on the season.
