ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Reggie Bush rambled for 203 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries Sunday, propelling the Miami Dolphins to a 30-23 victory over Buffalo.

Bush's performance -- the first 200-yard rushing game by a Dolphin since Ricky Williams gained 216 in 2002 -- gave interim head Coach Todd Bowles a victory in his first game.

Bowles took over Monday from the fired Tony Sparano.

Matt Moore passed for a pair of scores en route to 217 yards as the Dolphins (5-9) won for the fifth time in seven games following an 0-7 start.

The reeling Bills, meanwhile, lost for the seventh straight game.

Ryan Fitzpatrick went 31-of-47 through the air for 316 yards with two touchdowns but was intercepted three times for Buffalo (5-9).
