Ryan Tannehill is coming off his most efficient game of the season as the Dolphins host St. Louis on Sunday.

The Miami Dolphins will look to even their record when they host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

The Dolphins are 2-3 this season. Miami is fresh off a 17-13 win over the Bengals.

The Rams enter Sunday's contest at 3-2. St. Louis is coming off a 17-3 win over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Miami rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill is coming off his most efficient game of his young career. The first-round pick out of Texas A&M was 17-for-26 for 223 yards against the Bengals. He didn't have a touchdown or interception, but his quarterback rating was a season-high 92.3.

The Dolphins hope for a more effective running game this weekend. Against the Bengals, Reggie Bush (19 carries, 48 yards) and Daniel Thomas (10 carries, 29 yards) each averaged less than 3 yards per carry. Both finished with a touchdown.

St. Louis running back Steven Jackson, who has battled through injuries recently, rushed for a season-high 76 yards against the Cardinals. He's averaging 3.5 yards per carry going into Week 6.

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, a No. 1 overall pick in 2010, enters Sunday's contest against the Dolphins with 1,022 passing yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. on FOX.
