Ravens' rookie QB stars vs. Dolphins
MIAMI (AP) - With one hand Cam Cameron held a clipboard, and with the other he waved a jubilant fist. As the Baltimore Ravens' offense trotted off the field following its final score, he greeted players with handshakes, hugs and slaps on the backside.


It was the sort of scene common on the visitors' sideline in Miami last year, when Cameron was the Dolphins' head coach.

The visitors won again Sunday, this time with Cameron as their offensive coordinator. He orchestrated four scoring drives against the team he coached to only one win in 2007, and the Ravens broke a three-game losing streak by beating the Dolphins 27-13.

Mindful of Cameron's history in Miami, the Ravens gave him a game ball.

"This is going to go home to my wife Missy and to my kids, because it's a lot tougher on them than it will ever be on us coaches," Cameron said in the locker room, his eyes watery and his voice breaking. "That's why it's a little emotional. ... When you give your heart and soul to something and it doesn't work out, some of that pain comes back."

Miami's lone victory last season came against Baltimore in December, which wasn't enough to save Cameron's job. Since changing teams, he has searched for consistency from the Ravens, and they finally found it with scoring drives of 42, 67, 67 and 68 yards.

The NFL's top-ranked defense did the rest, rebounding from a 31-3 drubbing at Indianapolis a week ago. Terrell Suggs scored on a 44-yard interception return, and the Ravens limited Ronnie Brown to 27 yards rushing. Baltimore blitzed to contain Miami's Wildcat offense, which netted only 4 yards in five plays.

"They're one of the top defenses in the league, and it showed," Brown said. "They had an answer for a lot of things we were doing."

The Ravens (3-3) won for the first time in their five visits to Miami, and for the first time in nearly a month.

"This was going to make or break our season," Suggs said. "When you lose three or four games in a row, players are only human, and they stop believing. We've got guys believing."

The Dolphins fell to 2-4 and remained last in the AFC East.

Baltimore frequently went with no huddle, and the tempo worked for rookie Joe Flacco, who was 17-for-23 for 232 yards. He threw only his second touchdown pass this season and didn't commit a turnover.

"We've got to give him more pressure - he was too relaxed back there," Miami linebacker Joey Porter said. "We knew what they wanted to do, and we let them do it. They didn't do anything special; they just beat us."

Willis McGahee ran for 105 yards and a touchdown in 19 carries. Matt Stover, who missed a 44-yard field goal in overtime in the loss at Miami last year, was 2-for-2 on kicks of 47 and 28 yards.

Sixth-year pro Suggs scored his first career touchdown to put Baltimore ahead to stay. When Chad Pennington threw a short pass under heavy pressure, Suggs stepped in front of the intended receiver and sprinted untouched for a 10-3 lead.

With Baltimore still up by seven early in the fourth quarter, McGahee gained 35 yards on a screen pass before losing a fumble at the Miami 5. The Ravens shook off their only turnover, quickly forced a punt and mounted a 68-yard drive, culminated by McGahee's 5-yard run for the game's final score.

Baltimore averaged 5.9 yards per play, punted only three times and went 7-for-14 converting third- and fourth-down situations.

"The game plan by Cam Cameron was really outstanding," coach John Harbaugh said. "You see the things we're trying to do to become an offense."

More than half the Dolphins' roster has turned over since last season, but Cameron said many of their players spoke with him following the game.

"All the guys afterward were great," he said. "Everyone has their view of what happened last year, but I was there. I know what happened. Adversity brings out different things in different people. Sometimes there are guys that stand up and throw it on their shoulders, and sometimes that's tough for some other people."

Notes: Dolphins NT Jason Ferguson left the game in the first quarter with a rib injury and didn't return. ... Miami's Ted Ginn returned kickoffs for the first time this season, totaling 93 yards on five runbacks. ... The Ravens gave up only 71 yards rushing. They haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in the past 25 games, the longest such streak in the NFL.
