MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Jay Ajayi tied an NFL record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row, helping the Miami Dolphins rally past the Buffalo Bills 28-25 Sunday.Ajayi rushed for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards a week earlier in a win over Pittsburgh. He scored on a 4-yard run , and busted a 53-yarder when the Dolphins were pinned at their 3 and trailing in the fourth quarter.The Dolphins (3-4) used an extra lineman much of the time to clear big holes for Ajayi, who tied the NFL record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.Miami overcame an 11-point deficit with 16 minutes left to end a four-game winning streak by the Bills (4-3) and beat them for only the second time in their past seven meetings.With Ajayi sidelined by cramps, Damien Williams carried half the Bills weary defense into the end zone on a 12-yard touchdown run that put the Dolphins ahead with 3:56 to go. On their next possession, Ryan Tannehill hit Kenny Stills for a 66-yard score that made it 28-17.Miami recovered an onside kick with 13 seconds left to seal the victory.Tyrod Taylor threw long to Marquise Goodwin for a 67-yard touchdown that put the Bills up 17-6 midway through the third quarter. The Dolphins responded with a 75-yard drive for their first touchdown.EMERGING STAR: Ajayi, a second-year pro from Boise State, is the only NFL rusher with a 200-yard game this year. He ran for 187 yards as a rookie and totaled 117 in Miamis first five games this year before his breakout.GIMPY McCOY: While Miamis ground game clicked, Bills running back LeSean McCoy left in the third quarter after he aggravated a left hamstring injury.McCoy, ranked second in the NFL in rushing, had been questionable after hurting himself in practice Wednesday. He started, but totaled only 11 yards in eight carries before departing.ILLEGAL HIT: Bills safety Aaron Williams missed the second half with a head and neck injury when blocked illegally by receiver Jarvis Landry, who was flagged for unnecessary roughness.Landry led with his shoulder, launched into Williams and hit him high. Williams remained on his back for a couple of minutes before he slowly rose and was led to the locker room.Landry was penalized earlier in the game for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting.Williams missed most of last season when he underwent neck surgery following an injury that threatened his career.EDGE IN STATS: The Dolphins outgained Buffalo 454 yards to 267 and had a 14-minute edge in time of possession, but were hurt by 13 penalties for 116 yards. Two defensive stops by the Bills, who lead the NFL in red zone defense, forced field goals after long Miami drives.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve-Wine.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU waited weeks to allow offensive coordinator candidate Lane Kiffin to test the head-coaching market. But Tigers coach Ed Orgeron wasted no time once he learned Kiffin would not join his staff.LSU announced Wednesday that Orgeron has hired Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Matt Canada two days after Kiffin accepted a position as head coach at Florida Atlantic.The appeal for me is this is LSU. Thats the appeal, Canada said Wednesday. This is the greatest program in the country. I got a call from Coach O to come to LSU. Thats the appeal.Canada, 44, does not have the same national name recognition as Kiffin, who has served as a head coach in the NFL and at both Southern California and Tennessee. However, Canadas Pittsburgh offense has been every bit as productive this season as the one Kiffin fielded at top-ranked Alabama.Hes done a great job of coaching quarterbacks whether it be in a spread offense or whether it be in a pro-style offense, whether the quarterbacks running the ball or throwing the ball, Orgeron said. The guy knows what hes doing. Were very fortunate to have in my opinion and, in the opinion across the country, two of the top coordinators at LSU in Matt Canada and Dave Aranda.Canada was the only one of the five finalists for this seasons Broyles Award -- the annual honor that goes to college footballs top assistant coach -- who worked on the offensive side of the ball.At LSU, he will inherit an offense with some impressive pieces but with a long tradition of underperforming its talent -- especially at quarterback, Canadas position group. The Tigers rank 60th nationally in total offense (425.7 yards per game) and 67th in scoring offense (28.3 points per game) this season, well behind the numbers Canadas offense posted in the ACC (447.5 YPG and 42.3 PPG).The Panthers scored 76 points in the season finale against Syracuse. Pitt also beat Big Ten champion Penn State 42-39 and second-ranked Clemson 43-42. The 8-4 Panthers earned a trip to the Pinstripe Bowl, and Canada will remain with the team for that game.?This has been professionally and personally the best and the hardest year of my life, said Canada, who was fired by NC State at the end of the 2015 season. What happened there is irrelevant. Ive answered the question [saying] I was surprised. I didnt see it coming. We were third in the league in scoring. But people make changes and Im very, very fortunate that change was made there because Im standing here talking to you right now.Canada replaces Steve Ensminger, who took over playcalling duties when Les Miles was fired and Orgeron was named interim coach in September. The interim tag has subsequently been taken off his title.Orgerons stated goal is to transform the unimaginative run-heavy scheme that LSU employed under Miles into a spread-based scheme that utilizes a dual-threat quarterback. Canada has proved himself adept at coaching such a system over the past decade, having served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at five schools (Pitt, NC State, Wisconsin, Northern Illinois and Indiana) during that time.I was going to wait. Im telling you, I was not going to get in a hurryy, Orgeron said of the hire.dddddddddddd I was going to bring the best guy that I thought for LSU, and I just felt that he was the best guy.Orgeron said he talks to Kiffin every day and said that there was no hard feelings about his friend taking the FAU job.Never, Orgeron said. He wanted a head job. He got one. Im happy for him.Although Canada did not have a dual-threat quarterback in each of those seasons, his offenses generally relied on quarterbacks who could make things happen with their feet. His quarterbacks averaged 392.2 rushing yards per season over the past decade -- Northern Illinois Chandler Harnish was the best of the bunch with 1,379 rushing yards in 2011 -- a stark contrast from the approach Miles offenses took at quarterback over his 11-plus seasons at LSU. The Tigers had just one quarterback -- Jordan Jefferson with 450 yards in 2010 -- rush for at least 300 yards in a season under Miles.LSU starter Danny Etling has just 44 rushing yards this season, though the Purdue transfer is more of a pocket passer than a running threat. The other quarterbacks on LSUs roster -- Brandon Harris, Justin McMillan and Lindsey Scott -- were all dual-threat prospects in high school, and Orgerons staff might also attempt to persuade 2017 dual-threat prospect Lowell Narcisse to rejoin LSUs recruiting class after he recently wavered on his commitment.Canada did some of his best work this season in developing Tennessee transfer Nathan Peterman at Pittsburgh. Peterman sits 10th nationally in Total Quarterback Rating with an 81.8 opponent-adjusted score, the highest of any Canada-coached quarterback over the past decade. Peterman is the triggerman for a Panthers offense that has already broken the school record for points in a season (508), having scored at least 28 points in all 12 games.Will that translate at LSU? Its certainly no guarantee. Canada butted heads with head coach Bret Bielema in 2012, his one season at Wisconsin, and was fired at NC State in 2015 after three seasons there.But hes never worked with the level of talent that he will have at his disposal at LSU -- a collection of players that will include 1,249-yard rusher Derrius Guice, four offensive linemen with starting experience and potentially two of the Tigers top three wideouts. Leading receiver Malachi Dupre (34 catches for 454 yards) has not yet announced whether he plans to return for his senior season, but speedster D.J. Chark (24-419) should be back after a breakthrough 2016.Perhaps Canada will not be able to overhaul LSUs offensive scheme overnight, but he has a record of successfully using the spread principles that Orgeron desires. Canada will face immediate scrutiny, however, as LSUs offense has frustrated its fans for years because of potential that often went untapped.If he can direct anywhere near the offensive turnaround that he led in one season at Pitt, when the Panthers jumped from 68th to 10th in scoring offense, most Tigers fans will forget that Canada was a fallback option once Orgerons Kiffin plans fell through. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
