Ginn, Pennington lead charge as Dolphins claw back to drop sloppy Bills
MIAMI -- Ted Ginn Jr.'s career in Miami began with boos, and it took 18 months for him to silence the critics.A draft bust no more, Ginn made seven catches Sunday for a career-high 175 yards, and the Dolphins overcame a nine-point third-quarter deficit to beat Buffalo 25-16.
• Miami scored 18 unanswered points to help the Dolphins to their first win over Buffalo since 2005.
• Ted Ginn Jr.'s 175 yards receiving is the ninth-highest total in Dolphins history and most since Chris Chambers' franchise-record 238 yards (also against Buffalo) in 2005.
• Chad Pennington threw for 314 yards, his first 300-yard game as a Dolphin and first since 2006.
