MIAMI -- Backup quarterback Matt Moore rallied Miami two fourth-quarter touchdowns and the Dolphins edged the Dallas Cowboys 25-19 on Saturday night.
Running back Orleans Darkwa capped a 12-play, 55-yard drive by plowing into the end zone for the decisive score with 1:45 left in the game.
Moore, who went 12-for-19 for 173 yards and one touchdown, hooked up with Harold Hoskins at the 5:40 mark of the fourth quarter for a 27 yard touchdown.
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo played the first half and was sacked three times. Coming off surgery to repair his back, Romo completed 10 of 18 passes for 87 yards.
"It was good to see Tony out there playing," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said at halftime. "He got knocked around a little bit, and that could be good and bad. It's good to have him feel the physical part of the game."
Miami starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 13 of 21 passes for 119 yards as he played into the third quarter before giving way to Moore.
Dallas rookie Tyler Patmon's nine-yard interception return for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter put Dallas up 20-11. But there was plenty of time left for Moore's heroics.
Knowshon Moreno, who played with the Denver Broncos last season, made his preseason debut for the Dolphins. The first time he touched the ball he ran for 19 yards. He finished with 64 yards on 10 carries.
Saints 23, Colts 17
Indianapolis -- Drew Brees completed 9 of 15 passes and threw two first-quarter touchdown passes as New Orleans beat Indianapolis.
The Saints' offense was hitting on all cylinders in the first half as New Orleans amassed 288 total yards, 124 of those on the ground. Brees had missed almost two weeks of practice; Saturday was his first preseason game action.
For the Colts, quarterback Andrew Luck played into the third quarter but was only 10-for-18 for 103 yards and one touchdown. Luck's favorite receiver, Reggie Wayne, did return to action after missing much of last season with a torn ACL.
Texans 18, Broncos 17
Denver -- Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was in midseason form hooking up with Emmanuel Sanders for two long first-half touchdowns in a loss, which was punctuated by a taunting penalty called on the five-time MVP.
Manning was penalized after the second TD strike to Sanders. Manning ran up to Texans safety D.J. Swearinger, who knocked WR Wes Welker out of the game with a forearm to the face one play earlier. Welker, who has a history of head injuries, is being tested for a possible concussion.
Houston's third-string quarterback, rookie Tom Savage, rallied the Texans to the winning touchdown with less than a minute to go. Savage completed a 74-yard drive with a 31-yard pass to Ryan Griffin. Savage and Travis Labhart completed the two-point conversion for the win.
Vikings 30, Chiefs 12
Kansas City, Mo. -- Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel returned to Arrowhead Stadium where he was booed by fans only two years and threw for 152 yards and a touchdown to lead Minnesota to an easy victory.
Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater, Cassel's backup who is vying to unseat Cassel, threw two touchdown passes.
The Chiefs' offense continues to struggle. Quarterback Alex Smith threw two red-zone interceptions and the first-team offense still has not scored a touchdown this preseason in 16 possessions.
Rams 33, Browns 14
Cleveland -- Quarterback Sam Bradford "dodged a bullet" during St. Louis' dominating win over Cleveland. Bradford left the game midway through the first quarter clutching his left knee, the same knee he had surgery on last year to repair a torn ACL.
After the game, multiple outlets reported that tests showed the ACL was not injured. He will have an MRI on Sunday. Third-string quarterback Austin Davis threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns.
The Browns mustered just 100 yards of offense in the first half and ended the game with a grand total of 197 yards. Starting quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for one score and rookie backup Johnny Manziel ran for a score. Rams rookie Michael Sam sacked Manziel twice and mimicked the Browns rookie by making Manziel's "money" sign.
