    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. Discount Thunder Jerseys . -- An hour after the game, Jay Ajayi returned to the field, basking in a newfound spotlight even as he stood in gathering shadows. There were handshakes, hugs, interviews and photos with fans, and his grin grew wider when he took a selfie, capturing a moment he could not quite believe.Its crazy to imagine its happening so fast like this, Ajayi said.Hes becoming a household name even before fans learn how to pronounce it. Ajayi (uh-JYE) tied a league record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row Sunday, helping the Miami Dolphins rally past the Buffalo Bills 28-25.Led by Ajayi, the Dolphins (3-4) have run their way back to relevance with consecutive wins they can savor during an upcoming bye week. The Bills (4-3) must regroup from their first loss in five games, and injuries to three top players.Here are things to know about the twist in the AFC East race:NEW WEAPON: Ajayi rushed for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards a week earlier in a win over Pittsburgh, giving Miamis long-sputtering offense welcome spark.Adam Gase came to the Dolphins with a reputation as a quarterback guru, but the first-year coach is learning he can win with the run -- and Ajayi.I keep reminding myself to stay with him, because he seems to find the right hole and pops it, and it becomes a 10- or 12-yard gain, Gase said. Thats my biggest challenge -- just staying with it. Sometimes its easier to start throwing it around, because the yards come quicker, but staying with him and letting him get into a rhythm is really critical for us.Ajayi tied the record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams. Its a remarkable breakout by the second-year pro from Boise State, who ran for 187 yards as a rookie and totaled 117 in Miamis first five games this year.DIRTY HIT?: Aaron Williams was hurt and Jarvis Landrys reputation took a hit as a result of the days most violent collision .A block by Dolphins receiver Landry caused Williams to miss the second half with a head and neck injury. The Bills safety went to a hospital for an MRI before flying back to Buffalo with the team.Williams missed most of last season because of a neck injury that required surgery and threatened his career. Landry said he apologized to Williams and wished he could take the block back.Was it dirty?Call it what you want, Landry said. Its football.OTHER INJURIES: Bills running back LeSean McCoy left in the third quarter after he aggravated a left hamstring injury, and he totaled only 11 yards in eight carries.The injury is especially worrisome because McCoy was plagued by trouble with the same hamstring last season. But hes optimistic he wont miss any more playing time.Its not one of those major issues like last year when I was in deep, deep pain, McCoy said. This is something that just takes time. I think a full week of practicing and taking my steps, and it should be fine.Receiver Marquise Goodwin was hurt on an incompletion late in the game and went into the concussion protocol. The Bills were already without injured wideouts Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods.Dolphins safety Isa Abdul-Quddus suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter.SELF-INFLICTED: The Dolphins outgained Buffalo 454 yards to 267 but didnt take the lead for good until less than four minutes remained. One reason: 13 penalties for 116 yards.Dumb, Gase said. The things were doing right now are absolutely dumb.UP NEXT: The Dolphins have bye before facing the Jets on Nov. 6. It will be Miamis fourth consecutive home game, wrapping up an NFL-record 44-day homestand.The Bills play host to division leader New England on Sunday.---AP NFL website: and Steven Wine on Twitter: His work can be found at Steven Adams Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Jerami Grant Jersey . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. .S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Larry Brown is leaving SMU after turning down a contract extension, ending a four-year run during which the Mustangs made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1993 and then were banned from postseason play last season.SMU athletic director Rick Hart said Friday that Brown, who was signed through next season, had been offered a new deal through 2020.This morning, however, I was notified by his agent that he would be stepping down, Hart said. Coach Brown was able to accomplish so much in his four years on the Hilltop, including leading us to our first conference title since 1993. He has left his mark on SMU basketball, and we are thankful for what hes done.Brown didnt return messages left on his cellphone by The Associated Press.The Hall of Fame coach had repeatedly said how much he loved what he was accomplishing at SMU. Brown, who turns 76 in September, had indicated late last season that he wanted to keep coaching as long as SMU would have him.Brown told the Dallas Morning News he had been discussing an extension with SMU officials for the past 20 months, but they were unable to agree on terms. The coach didnt get into specifics of what he wanted and what was offered by the school.The coach also expressed regret at the timing of the news, which became public in the aftermath of five police officers being shot to death Thursday night in downtown Dallas, only a few miles from the SMU campus. Seven other officers and two civilians were wounded in the attack, which took place during a protest over this weeks killings by police of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.Associate head coach Tim Jankovich will take over as head coach, as had been expected since he came to SMU with Brown in 2012 after serving five seasons as Illinois State head coach.I have the utmost confidence in Tim based on both his coaching resume as well as my time working with him here on the Hilltop, Hart said. I know he will keep our program among the nations elite, and I look forward to the seasons ahead.SMU was 25-5 last season, which came after the Mustangs won 27 games each of the previous two seasons.The Mustangs won the American Athletic Conference title in 2015. They then lost their NCAA Tournament opener 60-59 to UCLA after a controversial goaltendding call that went against SMU with 13 seconds left. Andre Roberson Jersey. .Brown was suspended for the first nine games last season for NCAA violations that also prevented the Mustangs from going to their second consecutive NCAA Tournament.The NCAA ruled last September that a former mens basketball administrative assistant completed online course work for a student to meet NCAA initial eligibility standards and be admitted to the university. That was among infractions against the mens basketball and mens golf programs.Guard Keith Frazier, the player in question, averaged 11.9 points in 10 games as a junior last season before leaving SMU and transferring to North Texas. SMU opted not to appeal the one-year postseason ban or Browns nine-game suspension. Jankovich was the acting head coach until Brown returned just before Christmas.The Mustangs finished last season with only seven available scholarship players. They won their first 18 games, staying undefeated longer than any other Division I team, but were 7-5 over their final stretch.Brown is the only coach to win NBA and NCAA titles. He held a record nine NBA jobs, and his only other college head jobs were two seasons at UCLA (1979-81) and five at Kansas (1983-88).The Jayhawks won the 1988 national championship before Brown returned to the NBA as San Antonios coach. The Jayhawks were banned from postseason play the next season and placed on probation for recruiting violations that occurred during Browns tenure.UCLA was 42-17 under Brown, but the Bruins runner-up finish in the 1980 NCAA Tournament was later vacated by the NCAA after two players were determined to be ineligible.Brown was 1,098-904 in 26 seasons as an NBA head coach, including the 2004 championship with Detroit.The 57-year-old Jankovich was 104-64 at Illinois State from 2007-12. He had previously served as an assistant coach for Bill Self, at Illinois (2002-03) and Kansas (2003-07). Jankovichs only other Division I head coaching job was at North Texas, where he was 53-57 from 1993-97. Among his other coaching stops were as an assistant at Vanderbilt, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Texas and Kansas State.
