"It's great for us to pat ourselves on the back right this second," Suh said.
Suh had one of his best games since joining the Dolphins (4-5). He had a sack, three tackles for losses and three hurries.
"He stepped up," interim coach Dan Campbell said. "He did so much for us."
"This is a great opportunity for us," Suh said. "We understand what we have to get done."
"It seemed like it was up there for about 10 seconds," Tannehill said. "When the ball goes up in the air like that, good things tend not to happen. My heart slowed down. The ball was in slow motion coming down. But I saw Jarvis see the ball, and the defender did not see the ball."
Caleb Sturgis made a 37-yard field goal to get Philadelphia within 20-19. It looked like he would get a chance to beat his former team, but Jones' interception ended the threat. Sturgis missed from 32 yards in the first half.
"We didn't do a good job putting ourselves in situations where we can be successful," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said.
Bradford led them on touchdown drives on their first two possessions with a safety sandwiched in between, giving Philadelphia more points (16) in the first quarter against the Dolphins than it had in the first quarter of their first eight games combined (10).
But the Eagles' next drive ended when Sturgis missed from 32 and Miami scored 10 straight points to get within 16-13.
"That was a huge play for us," Campbell said of the block. "You could feel the momentum swing back in our favor. I think it gave us a little breath of life."
