Make it 2 in a row - takeaways help Dolphins' turnaround

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The biggest takeaway from the Miami Dolphins' wins the past two weeks: Takeaways matter.

The Dolphins had by far the NFL's worst turnover differential two weeks ago, when they were 0-7. But they've been on the plus side each of the past two games, and now can bask in the league's most improbable winning streak.

Three interceptions Sunday helped Miami rally on the road to upset Indianapolis, 16-12. Yes, the picks came against Brian Hoyer, but they were still impressive considering the Dolphins totaled one interception in their first seven games.
