Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) – Jonas Gray rushed for two touchdowns and
the Miami Dolphins dominated defensively en route to a 27-3 victory over the
Jacksonville Jaguars in a preseason clash from EverBank Field.

Dustin Keller accounted for Miami’s other touchdown by hauling in a 22-yard
pass from Ryan Tannehill that gave the Dolphins a 7-0 advantage late in the
first quarter. Gray extended the lead to 14-0 with a 1-yard plunge in the
second, a score set up by Nolan Carroll’s interception of Jaguars quarterback
Blaine Gabbert, and added another 1-yard touchdown following a Jacksonville
fumble deep in Dolphins’ territory with under eight minutes left to play.

Tannehill operated Miami’s first four offensive series and amassed 75 yards
while completing 5-of-9 attempts in his second start of this preseason. The
Dolphins opened the schedule with a 24-20 loss to Dallas in Sunday’s Hall of
Fame Game from Canton, OH.

Jacksonville mustered just 289 total yards and committed four turnovers in new
head coach Gus Bradley’s preseason debut.

Ex-Dolphin Chad Henne, competing with Gabbert for the Jaguars’ starting
quarterback job, hit on 8-of-11 passes for 87 yards and led the team’s lone
scoring drive, a 16-play, 75-yard march capped by Josh Scobee’s 23-yard field
goal in the second quarter.

Gabbert, meanwhile, managed a mere 19 yards on a 5-of-10 success rate while
working the entire opening quarter. Jacksonville punted on his first three
possessions at the helm, with the final one ending in Carroll’s pick.
