MIAMI (AP) - Chad Pennington waited in front of his end zone, the last line of defense for the Miami Dolphins. A blocker buried him - just like the Baltimore Ravens treated Pennington and the Dolphins all day.
The block allowed Ed Reed to complete a 64-yard interception return for a touchdown, and the Ravens came up with four other takeaways Sunday to win 27-9, spoiling the Dolphins' first playoff game in seven seasons.
Baltimore stuffed Miami's ground attack, had no problems with the Wildcat, and harried Pennington into uncharacteristic mistakes. After throwing only seven interceptions during the regular season, Pennington had four.
