Bush's two TDs help Dolphins halt Grossman, 'Skins

MIAMI -- Reggie Bush scored two touchdowns, and the Dolphins twice intercepted Rex Grossman passes to earn their first home victory in nearly a year by beating the Washington Redskins 20-9 on Sunday.

The Dolphins ended a franchise-record streak of seven consecutive losses in Miami since last Nov. 14.

Grossman was a surprise starter, replacing John Beck four weeks after being benched. Grossman threw for 215 yards, but he was sacked three times and had a passer rating of 58.7.

Miami (2-7) won for the second week in a row after starting 0-7. Washington (3-6) dropped its fifth consecutive game, the longest losing streak of Mike Shanahan's career as a head coach.
