MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Miami defensive end Derrick Shelby batted the pass in the air, caught it and sprinted to the end zone with quarterback Matt Schaub chasing him in vain.
Once Shelby and the Dolphins built a 15-point lead, the Baltimore Ravens couldn't quite catch them, either.
Miami intercepted a pair of deflected Schaub passes to score two touchdowns 20 seconds apart late in the first half Sunday, and held on to win 15-13. The Ravens moved into Dolphins territory twice in the final six minutes but failed to score.
The Dolphins (5-7) managed only eight first downs but improved to 4-4 under interim coach Dan Campbell, and ended a streak of five consecutive losses to the Ravens (4-8).
The score was 0-0 when Reshad Jones intercepted a pass batted by defensive tackle Jordan Phillips to set up the game's first score. On the next play, Ryan Tannehill hit a leaping DeVante Parker at the goal line for a 38-yard touchdown.
Three plays later, the 280-pound Shelby batted a pass in the air, caught it and ran 22 yards to the end zone for his first NFL touchdown.
It was the second pick-six in as many games for Schaub since he replaced Joe Flacco, who is out for the season with a knee injury.
Miami mounted a goal-line stand in the second quarter, and repeatedly turned away the Ravens down the stretch. Olivier Vernon totaled 2 1/2 sacks, one on third down with the Ravens nearing field goal range and five minutes left.
Baltimore recovered a fumble to get the ball back, but failed to pick up a first down, and Justin Tucker was wide right on a 55-yard field goal try with 2:42 to go. Tucker is the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history.
The Ravens again took over at their 20 with 20 seconds left and were unable to reach midfield.
Injury-plagued Baltimore lost despite outgaining Miami 375-219. Schaub threw for 308 yards.
The Dolphins' two scores off turnovers were the extent of their point production, and new play-caller Zac Taylor couldn't get the offense going. Miami ran more than in recent games, and Lamar Miller rushed for 113 yards, but Tannehill went 9 for 19 for just 86 yards.
Javorius Allen turned a screen pass from Schaub into a 41-yard play for the Ravens' touchdown. Baltimore drove 60 yards in the final minute of the first half to kick a field goal, and added another field goal early in the fourth quarter.
A disputed penalty against the Ravens cost them a touchdown in the first quarter. Schaub threw long to Daniel Brown for a 52-yard score, but it was negated by an offensive pass interference penalty on Brown, who had only minimal contact with the defender.
