Bush scores two rush TDs in Dolphins' win

Reggie Bush scored twice as many rushing touchdowns Sunday as he had in the eight games leading up to it.

Bush rushed for two scores, accounting for most of the Miami Dolphins' points in a 20-9 victory over the Washington Redskins. The win was Miami's second in as many games.

In his first multiple-rushing-touchdown game since 2007, Bush picked up 47 yards on 14 carries, thanks in part to his second touchdown, which went for 18 yards.

Bush was lined up in the left slot but motioned to the snap and took a handoff from quarterback Matt Moore, following fellow back Daniel Thomas, who was the lead blocker, around the right side. The Dolphins have had success on the play throughout the season.

"We're getting the right blocks on that play and making it happen, and I'm trusting the reads I see," Bush said during his postgame presser. "... It's just blocked like a sweep."

It was a hard-earned run following a 1-yard rushing score where he walked in untouched.

The Dolphins improved to 2-7 while Washington fell to 3-6. It was the Redskins' fifth loss in a row.
