Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Reggie Bush ran for 172 yards with a pair of touchdowns, leading the Miami Dolphins to a 35-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders at Sun Life Stadium.

Ryan Tannehill notched his first win as an NFL quarterback, throwing for 200 yards with his first touchdown. The first-round pick also ran for a score as he and the Dolphins (1-1) bounced back from a dismal opener last week in Houston and gave Joe Philbin his first win as an NFL head coach.

Miami failed to score an offensive touchdown in the 30-10 loss to the Texans, as Tannehill threw three interceptions in the setback. On Sunday, the Texas A&M product completed 18-of-30 passes and was not picked off, directing four second-half scoring drives.

Brian Hartline was his favorite target, catching nine passes for 111 yards. The Miami rushing attack was also a factor with 259 yards.

Oakland (0-2) was coming off a Monday night loss to San Diego in its opener and has dropped its first two games for the first time since the 2007 campaign.

Carson Palmer connected on 24-of-48 passes for 373 yards with a touchdown in defeat. The Raider ground game managed just 23 yards, led by 22 on 11 carries from Darren McFadden.
