That was just the second touchdown the Dolphins scored in the first half all season. To often they got off to a slow start. Not tonight.

Bengals secondary got burned badly last week against the Broncos. Not a good start this week either. Kenny Stills was wide open deep for an easy touchdown to put the Dolphins up 7-0. Took just two plays. Meanwhile, the Bengals offense struggled on its first series.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Looked like the Bengals expected Dolphins WR Kenny Stills to run the post. Dropped the coverage to the FS. However, when Stills broke back outside to the corner route, there was no help over the top. Easy toss for Ryan Tannehill. That's a bust for the Bengals defense and a 7-0 Miami lead in the first quarter.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill finds WR Kenny Stills on a similar throw they nearly connected on in Week 1 against Seattle. Stills caught it this time for a 74-yard touchdown.

Team Europe robbed of a penalty shot. Then can't convert on the power play. Canada PK remains perfect in World Cup, big part of their World Cup success.

How much has Greg Ward Jr. progressed as a passer? In the last play of the first quarter, he eluded a sack and had plenty of running room in front of him but decided to stay in the pocket and throw. It didn't work out (he ended up being tackled for a 1-yard gain) but in years past Ward would have taken off after dodging the sack.

As Adam Jones joked the other day, the Orioles are already playing with house money since the computer projections all said they weren't contenders. They're leading the Blue Jays 2-0 through five behind Ubaldo Jimenez, going for his seventh straight solid start. He's at 93 pitches so Buck Showalter won't wait much longer before turning this one over to his bullpen.

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

Not a big fan of bubble screens with offensive linemen split out to block, as you saw the Bengals try on their second play. Doesn't leave much doubt about where the play is going.

Chara puts Europe ahead in must-win game

Facing elimination in Game 2 of the World Cup of Hockey final, Zdeno Chara puts Europe on the board first over Canada with a nice wrist shot.

In the fourth, David Ortiz walked and was pinch-run for by Brock Holt. Ortiz received a pretty nice cheer as he left the field, but nothing too special. That ends his career at Yankee Stadium. He will probably go down as the most impactful figure in the rivalry since Babe Ruth.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

David Ortiz draws a walk and a pinch-runner. Another nice ovation as he jogs off the field at Yankee Stadium in the top of the fourth inning. He went 0-for-10 with two walks and four strikeouts in his final series in the Bronx.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankee Stadium has become Fenway South. Xander Bogaerts just tied the game in the fourth inning with a home run and the crowd erupted. It is 1-1.

It's clear from Nick Saban's statement that he wasn't pleased with QB Blake Barnett's decision to transfer. He wished Barnett luck on the one hand, but pointed out on the other that he's "disappointed any time a player feels he can compete for a starting position elsewhere, rather than here at Alabama."
