MIAMI, NOV. 19 -- The Miami Dolphins' toughest game in weeks turned out to be too tough. The Los Angeles Raiders mounted three time-consuming scoring drives against the NFL's top-ranked defense and won tonight, 13-10.
More dominating than the score indicated -- Bo Jackson rushed for a season-high 99 yards in 17 carries, Marcus Allen gained 79 yards on 19 runs -- the Raiders (7-3) broke Miami's six-game winning streak and their two-game losing streak.
"Old-fashioned football . . . the kind everybody likes," Jackson said. "We ran it right at them."
Los Angeles took a one-game lead over second-place Kansas City in the AFC West. The Dolphins (8-2), who hadn't played a team with a winning record since Week 3, fell a game behind Buffalo in the AFC East.
The Raiders drove into Miami territory five times in the first three periods. Mixing run and pass, they had scoring drives of 9, 18 and 11 plays.
"We like to make statements," Los Angeles Coach Art Shell said. "The Raiders are back because we win. We like to win."
The Dolphins, without tough-blocking fullback Tony Paige because of an injury, abandoned the running game at halftime and tried to rally by using the shotgun formation. The final Miami possession ended with a fourth-and-15 incompletion at their 48 with 1:09 left.
Paige, with a knee sprain, missed a game for the first time in his career, including high school at DeMatha in Hyattsville, Md.
Miami set a team record for rushing futility with 14 yards in 12 carries -- quarterback Dan Marino gaining 14 yards on his lone run.
"Our running game couldn't get started. That was a disaster," coach Don Shula said. "So the whole thing rode on our passing game."
Marino completed 20 of 36 for 214 yards, but the Raiders stopped Miami on nine of 10 third downs.
The Raiders' only touchdown came at the end of a 79-yard drive that consumed more than nine minutes of the second quarter. Allen scored from the 2 on third down for the first rushing touchdown against Miami in 26 quarters; first offensive touchdown against the Dolphins in 14 quarters.
Miami moved 77 yards in seven plays -- all Marino passes -- to score with 31 seconds left in the half on Scott Schwedes' 14-yard reception. The Raiders made it 13-7 in the third quarter on Jeff Jaeger's 43-yard field goal. Marino moved the Dolphins 72 yards but Tony Martin dropped a third-down pass at the goal line, and Miami settled for a field goal making it 13-10.
