Justin Tucker kicked a 44-yard field goal to put the Baltimore Ravens ahead with 1:42 left, and they withstood a frantic comeback bid by the Miami Dolphins to win 26-23 Sunday.

Ryan Tannehill completed a 46-yard pass to Brandon Gibson on fourth down to keep Miami's hopes alive, but Caleb Sturgis then missed a 57-yard field goal attempt wide left with 33 seconds to go.

The Ravens (3-2) bounced back from a loss last week at Buffalo and won on the road for the first time this season. The Dolphins (3-2) lost their second game in a row.

Baltimore moved 34 yards to set up Tucker's game-winning field goal, his fourth of the day. The Ravens ran for a season-high 133 yards, and Joe Flacco threw for 269 yards.
