MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Marcus Thigpen showed why he might not make the Miami Dolphins. And then he showed why he might. After muffing a chance badly in the first half, Thigpen had a 32-yard punt return midway through the fourth quarter to set up Miamis go-ahead score, and the Dolphins beat the St. Louis Rams 14-13 on Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams. Matt Hazel caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Seth Lobato with 6:15 left for the Dolphins, who rallied with two TDs in the final quarter. Daniel Thomas, making his preseason debut and playing with the belief his spot on the roster wasnt secure, had a 5-yard touchdown run for Miami. Austin Davis threw for 162 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Austin Pettis, and Greg Zuerlein made a pair of long field goals for the Rams. A week ago, the Rams lost their starting quarterback. If nothing else, now they may have some confidence in the new backup. Davis came into St. Louis training camp as an afterthought, buried at the bottom of the quarterback depth chart. Hes now the backup behind Shaun Hill, who became the starter when Sam Bradford was lost for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee. Given the way hes played in the preseason, Davis might be ready. He completed 12 of 19 passes, albeit largely against second- and third-stringers, and finished the preseason 39 of 63 for 534 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. Both teams held out plenty of regulars, standard for teams in the final preseason game. Rosters will be cut to 53 by Saturday afternoon, meaning about 700 players in uniform around the league on Thursday night will be either headed to practice squads or looking for new teams shortly. "Jobs are open," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. "Thats why were here." Thigpen is one of those whose immediate future is a great unknown. Late in the first half, Thigpen muffed a punt at the Miami 28, kicked the ball while trying to pick it up, and wound up falling on it at the 12 — a loss of 16 yards. But in the fourth, after catching another punt deep in Miami territory, Thigpen darted to his left, then up the middle, made a couple of Rams miss and wound up breaking a runback to nearly midfield, drawing plenty of helmet-slaps from teammates. Michael Sam was in on six tackles for the Rams, and Ethan Westbrooks had a sack for St. Louis. Theyre among the candidates for one of the final spots on St. Louis defensive line, a particularly deep position for the Rams. Lobato completed 12 of 25 passes for 147 yards for Miami. Matt Moore, who started Thursday and will open the season as Ryan Tannehills backup, completed five of eight passes for 38 yards in relatively limited action.

France always had the match in hand with four tries to two, however Tonga humbled the home defence frequently with all the breaks it made but couldnt make any links to support. Tonga prop Alisona Taumalolo and France lock Yoann Maestri were ejected in the 41st minute for trading punches. It hardly mattered as France was in command at 21-6. "We made small mistakes but the most important thing is to regain confidence with a victory," France fullback Brice Dulin said. "Maybe we got carried away at times. We wanted so much to do well and score tries. We were sometimes a bit messy, but that will boost our morale." After an early penalty, winger Sofiane Guitoune, the Top 14s top try-scorer making his test debut, collected a high ball from Morgan Parra to score an unconverted try in the right corner in the fifth minute. Parra punished more Tonga indiscipline with penalties in the 17th and the 29th for 14-0. The visitors came close to a try in the 22nd, but flanker Sione Kalamafoni ignored two free teammates to his right and lost possession. France started feeling Tongas physical impact at the breakdown. Flanker Thierry Dusautoir failed to roll away after a tackle and Fangatapu Apikotoa landed a penalty from 45 metres in the 31st. The Tonga flyhalf capitalized on a Frenchman offsside in the 37th to cut the deficit to 14-6.dddddddddddd "We were a bit on the backfoot in the first half," Dusautoir said. "We didnt manage to be well organized. They are very strong and we missed a lot of first tackles." On the stroke of halftime, France lock Sebastien Vahaamahina was stopped five meters from the line. Tonga lost its nerve as scrumhalf Taniela Moa was sent to the sin-bin for elbowing hooker Dimitri Szarzewski. No. 8 Damien Chouly relied on Frances powerful scrum to score a converted try for 21-6. The break did not help to cool tempers. Seconds after the restart, Maestri and Taumalolo were red-carded for trading head punches. Maestri, teary-eyed, had words with Taumalolo as he walked off. Guitoune sent Dulin in for another converted try but despite the growing deficit, Tonga kept fighting and created space with a multi-phase buildup that stretched the France defence. A big miss-out pass freed winger Fetuu Vainikolo to slide over in the left corner. Vainikolo conceded the next penalty which Parra goaled, then another rolling maul drove in replacement Benjamin Kayser to secure Frances first win after four defeats to New Zealand. In the last minute, Vainikolo escaped a tackle from a cramping Guitoune to smack the left corner flag as he touched down for his ninth career try. France faces South Africa next Saturday, while Tonga, after a second straight loss in Europe, visits Wales on Friday. ' ' '
