Morris Stretches to Elude Oilers After Taking Screen Pass Mercury gained 1 7 yards for first down on Boh Griese aerial c By BILL BRAUCHER Herald Sports Writer On a footloose and fumbling Sunday afternoon on Poly-Turf II the Dolphins dominated the inept Houston Oilers in a 34-13 romp before 77821 Orange Bowl customers sitting through intermittent rainfall The victory was Miami’s second straight without a loss in its drive toward another Super Bowl bid The bumbling Oilers dropped their second straight and were never really in it from the second quarter on Wet and slippery Poly-Turf proved treacherous to both sides from the start but the Oilers had an enemy more formidable than Poly-Turf namely themselves Two fumbles in the first five minutes led to two Miami touchdowns as the Dolphins built a 20-0 halftime lead JIM KnCK Mercury Morris and Larry Csonka scored the touchdowns from one yard two yards and four yards out respectively Kiick scored in the game’s second minute following Bill Stanfill’s recovery of a Hoyle Granger fumble at the Houston 14 and Kiick’s 13-yard smash to the one setting up his touchdown in his first start of the season Dan Pastorini a luckless quarterback in the first half muffed a high center in punt formation a few minutes later at his 30 The Dolphins scored in four plays three of them carries by Morris of 14 six and finally two yards for the score THE DOLPHINS settled for a 13-0 lead when Garo Yepremian had his second conversion try blocked his first miss as a Dolphin after 75 straight regular-season extra points Csonka’s touchdown came in the second quarter capping a smart 53-yard advance in four plays The highlight was a pinpoint pass over the middle from Bob Griese to Paul Warfield right between safetys John Charles and Ken Houston The play covered 30 yards to the Houston 10 Kiick made six on a cutback to his right before Csonka waded in behind the usual swath cut by guard Larry Little tackle Norm Evans center Jim Langer X ' 51 irs isVfvjr' EVEN CSONKA fumbled in the slippery going although rain fell frequently but not hard Larry’s muff at the Houston 20 in the second quarter was recovered by end Elvin Bethea and stymied another Dolphin thrust at the listless Oilers Pastorini’s first-half passing total was an unbelievable minus 10 yards on three completions of 10 attempts Griese was five for eight including a one-yard-line interception by Charles of a down-the-middle toss intended for Fleming near the end 5 Field Goals uhlmcinri ace CINCINNATI — (UPI) — German-born Horst Muhl-mann kicked his fourth and fifth field goals in the last quarter Sunday to lift the Cincinnati Bengals to a 15-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Muhlmann’s field goals rescued the Bengals who failed to score on three attempts from the Pittsburgh one-yard line just before the end of the half The Steelers who moved into a 10-3 halftime lead threw up a goal-line stand to stop two cracks by Essex Johnsonn and one by Jess Phillips from the one THE BENGALS recovered a fumble by rookie end Sherman White on the Cincinnati 35-yard line to set up the drive that culminated in Muhlmann’s winning field goal at 4:22 of the fourth quarter Muhlmann added an insurance three-pointer with 1:12 left to tie a team record Muhlmann’s five field goals came from the 42 32 20 32 and 34 yard lines After Muhlmann’s 42-yard boot opened the scoring in the first quarter Pittsburgh stormed back to take the lead on a 12-yard run by Terry Bradshaw climaxing a 45-yard march that began with a fumble recovery by linebacker Andy Russell Another recovered bobble by Steeler cornerback Mel Blount set up a 17-yard field goal by Roy Gerela in the second quarter to give the Steelers a 10-3 lead Cincinnati’s stalwart de mm -- mm f-

minutes of the third quarter had elapsed A 76-yard drive in nine plays was finished by a Griese keeper and sweep to his left for three yards behind a Csonka block that decked Houston and linebacker
