Thoughts on Dolphins 27, Jaguars 26

Some bullet-point thoughts on the Jaguars’ 27-26 home loss to Miami on Saturday night.


  • In their first action as Jaguars, Tyson Alualu and Aaron Kampman combined to sack Chad Henne on the Dolphins’ first play from scrimmage. The Jaguars had five sacks.

  • Rashad Jennings blocked a punt in the end zone for a safety at the start of the game. Jennings has gotten raves as a secondary running back (he turned three carries into 26 yards) and a big special-teams role only enhances his value.

  • The Jaguars pieced together a 10-play, 78-yard touchdown drive in the first quarter, when David Garrard fared well.

  • Jacksonville was three-for-three in the red zone and three-for-three on goal-to-go snaps.
