The fourth-quarter bull-run saw the former Washington State running back shake off at least five would-be tacklers on his way to a 31-yard touchdown. The run also put the game out of reach for the Dolphins, eventual 38-20 losers to the Jets.
Ivory also caught two passes on a pair of targets for 15 yards.
