Rapid reaction: Dolphins 26, Broncos 17

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham The Miami Dolphins mustered a solitary victory last year.

Halfway through their 2008 campaign, they are one game behind the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. And if the New England Patriots lose to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, the Dolphins will be one victory out of first place in the AFC East.

The Dolphins defeated the Denver Broncos 26-17 in Invesco Field at Mile High Sunday night.

Miami won consecutive games for the second time this year and is 4-4 overall, 2-1 in the AFC East.

The Dolphins scored only one offensive touchdown. Dan Carpenter kicked four field goals, and cornerback Will Allen returned one of Jay Cutler's three interceptions.

Classic overachiever Greg Camarillo had 11 catches for 111 yards to help the Dolphins overcome a plodding ground game. Ronnie Brown ran 20 times for 59 yards and a touchdown. Ricky Williams had six carries for 16 yards.

The AFC East has four live contenders.
