Jarvis Landry punt return keys Dolphins over Redskins

Jarvis Landry returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown with 10:22 left to give Miami its first lead, and the Dolphins held on to beat the Washington Redskins 17-10 Sunday.

Landry's score broke open a tight game in which the Redskins amassed more yards and dominated the time of possession but could not pull away.

Kirk Cousins went 21 for 31 for 196 yards and two interceptions for Washington. Robert Griffin III was inactive after only recently recovering from a concussion.

Miami trailed 10-0 in the second quarter, cut it to 10-7 at halftime and pulled even with 11:34 remaining when Andrew Franks kicked a 22-yard field goal to cap a 76-yard drive.

The Dolphins then forced a punt. Landry took the ball in the center of the field and darted up the middle, dodging would-be tacklers along the way.

On the ensuing drive, Cousins threw a sideline pass that Dolphins cornerback Brice McCain intercepted at the Miami 2.
